Post Expirator
post-expirator plugin pushes update before expiring (3 posts)

    I recently updated to this latest version 1.52 and it seems to be causing problems. First, I use this facebook update plugin http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/facebook-page-publish/ , and now when the post hits it's time to expire turn it into a draft, it updates facebook again. Also, my scheduled wordpress posts seem to be missing their schedule all the time. Not sure if this is related, but I really havent changed anything else on my server or plugin list. Any reason this would screw with scheduled posts?

    I'll gladly roll back to the old version if that will fix it. I have the old version file on another wordpress installation, but I dont want to screw things up by doing that if that doesn't work.

    I don't know much about that facebook plugin, I typically use:

    http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/simple-facebook-connect/

    I have never had any conflicts or issues with that plugin.

    When the post expires, it does change the status to draft which I suppose could trigger the other plugin to re-publish if it is not coded correctly to only allow the page to be published to facebook once.

    As for the schedule post issues, it sounds like you may be having some cron issues on your system, since that uses the same infrastructure as the post expirator to publish the post.
