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.
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!
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.
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.
