Used it to build automated event system
By , for WP 3.8.1

It's an excellent plugin that can be used for different purposes.

I wanted a simple event system that allowed me to set a date in which an event would move from a list called "upcoming" to another called "finished". Nothing else, no agenda or calendar or tickets.

Post Expirator, a custom post type, a custom taxonomy and Display Posts Shortcode were all I needed to get exactly what I wanted. Excellent!

Perfect
By , for WP 3.8.1

In combination with the "The Future is now!"-Plugin, this plugin creates a simple way of setting up the posts/blog function of wordpress as a nice & simple event manager or news-feed with the calendar showing upcoming dates & schedules.

-> works perfect!

Really Handy
By , for WP 3.8.1

This plugin is really handy for hiding pages that have a specified life ... in my case special events. Installed without problem and set-up is straight forward and intuitive. Just the job!

Tremendously Helpful, No Problems
By , for WP 3.6.1

I'm using iThemes Builder Child Foundation Blank, latest version theme running on a Baremetal.com Apache Named-1 hosting server. No problems to report and this plug-in is extremely useful for my client, who needs to specify expiration dates for job postings. A donation is on its way.

Works, but seems to be missing an important setting
By , for WP 3.6

This would have been 5 stars except for the lack of an option to set an interval or a specific time for the expiration to happen. I am transitioning a sire from an old hand-coded system to WP. In my old system, I expired posts once a day, at 0000 GMT (which required exactly one database update statement). I don't need the plugin doing anything except once a day, and I am concerned about the amount of resources being used to update the database more frequently. In fact, I'd like eliminate the time element when I specify expiration completely, and just expire by date.

I do like the flexibility of "expiring" posts to a category, and the UI is OK. The expirations are working as I expect, so the plugin is working as advertised.

What I was looking for, and more
By , for WP 3.5.1

This was just what I was looking for--a way to automatically expire posts in advance. The expiration options are very well thought-out, and the one I use is an option I had never even considered until I saw the options available: the plugin lets you automatically move expired posts to another category. So, whenever I create a post in the "Announcements" category, I set an expiration date and the plugin moves them by default to the "Archived announcements" category. Moreover, the plugin is well integrated with the WordPress system, so that in the listing of all posts, an "Expires" column is added along with everything else. Fantastic all round!

Works well for News posts
By , for WP 3.5.1

We are using this for a News section and the expiration and moving to a new category feature work great.

Great plugin

Updating my rating after the internal cron tasks have been updated to only run when due. Author is serious about the quality of this plugin and updates it regularly.
