Post Expirator

    Just attempting to use a custom field to add the date of expiration as I am using a form on the front-end to create custom posts. But there are a few issues.

    1. the plugin database entry creates a strange date in the database for the meta, something like '1334943600' , rather than 2012/04/20.

    2. the plugin also creates the extra meta fields
    -expiration-date-category
    -expiration-date-processed

    so are those two extra meta fields needed? and secondly whats with the date?

    I realised that the strange date was actually the Unix Timestamp. No idea how to deal with that so I opted to use another plugin, 'Content Scheduler', its database entry was easy to work with '00/00/0000 00:00'.
