Page Expiration Robot - Scarcity Countdown Timer
[Plugin: Page Expiration Robot] Page Expiration date for 1 user but not another (7 posts)

    This plugin sounds like it will work for me.. but I'd like the developer's opinion for sure.

    This is what I need to happen:

    I have a page = PAGE1 and I have 2 users: USER1 and USER2
    It is the same page, only each user will be viewing it at different start times but for the same length of time (1 month only) then it becomes unavailable for that user only.

    USER1 can view this page from the day he first views it until he is no longer allowed to use it after a period of time.. in this case 1 month.

    USER2 can view this page exactly as USER1, except USER2 doesn't first view it for a week.. and it needs to expire 1 month after that.

    So here's the scenario:

    User1 views PAGE1 on 9/10/2011 and it will expire for him on 10/10/2011
    User2 views PAGE1 on 9/17/2011 and it will expire for him on 10/17/2011

    Will this plugin work for me?

    Thanks Bill..

    Now to make it work on this domain. For some reason the "Restrict Access" box doesn't expand, no matter what I do.

    It works perfect on my test site but not on the live site. BTW..both sites are on different servers.

    Thanks again!

    Hey Bill,

    Could you direct me to where I would expire the page per user?

    I thought I knew where I was going to do this, but then I am not sure and I don't want to totally mess up the pages.

    Appreciate it very much.

    OK.. found where it EXPIRES the page when a user views it.. but it only goes to 31 days.

    IS there a way to make this expire much longer.. like 365 days?

    Which file(s) would I modify for this?

    AND if there is a better plugin out there that would work for me, could someone steer me to it?

    Thanks again!

    Hi again,

    Sorry, we only have it up till 31 days currently. I will add that to the list of possible updates for our next version. Thanks for the suggestion :)

    If you add "365" to the list of "days", will it see it as 365 days?

    I found the file (can't remember off-hand which one it was) that had the number of days listed. I add "365" at the end and chose it, but of course I can't tell if it made any difference.

    BUT what I will do is put in there 40 days and keep track to see if it kept active after 31.. and if it did, at least that'll be a workaround for now!

    Maybe add a box for YEARS along with MONTHS DAYS HOURS etc. :)

    Thanks!
