    Post expirator 1.5.2 does not make neither posts or pages expiring.
    They remain published after the expiration date even weeks after.
    Trying the option of changing categories does not work either.
    Therefor the footer showing the post expiration date works properly.

    Please help
    Thanks for spending your time

    Yep - not working anymore. I do understand you can do your own expiration with custom fields. I haven't done it myself but will likely go that route soon:

    The issue fixed in 1.5.3 may have corrected this for you - give it another go!

    This plugin seems to have stopped working if I pick a category to expire. I have tried resetting cron jobs also. Any other work around?

    I have made some trials with Post Expirator 1.5.3 and Wp 3.3.2.

    The posts do not appear after expiration date. This is an important
    progress since former version 1.5.2 .
    Nevertheless, the category change does not work.
    I tried to pass change a post category at expiration date without success, the post stop to appear but does not change of category as desired.
    Another trouble is that even if the post does not appear, it is still mentionned as published. Is it how Postexpirator is intended to work?

    Thanks for you time

    The way it works is by default (and if no categories are set) it will change the post to draft at expiration time. If you select some expiration categories, it will then by default update the category listings and not change the post status.

    That said, are you using this when any other plugins? Do scheduled (future) posts work?

    I have done a good amount of testing, and i have not been able to come up with any cases where the expiration is not working for me
