Allows you to add an expiration date to posts which you can configure to either delete the post, change it to a draft, or update the post categories.
Great plugin !
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!
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.
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.
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!
We are using this for a News section and the expiration and moving to a new category feature work great.
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.
I love this plugin.
I have a question though.. How can I display the date I picked, in my loop? Thank you.
I have had posts marked to expire, and they don't expire. Makes me look stupid when outdated information is left up on my website and customers see it :-( As it turns out, this may be caused by a feature I wouldn't expect to use - the expire to category option. If you have a category checked, (which was in my case, although I didn't check it -- perhaps a default?) the post doesn't actually expire. I'm thinking a few interface and/or documentation changes would resolve it and get a higher rating from me.
Everything is OK :) Works good with 3.4 :)
