Reviews

Date Picker Doesn’t Work

Upon first installation, the date picker doesn't work when trying to set the expiry date. Well, that basically renders this plugin useless. Great idea, but needs to work properly first.

not working

>>This plugin turns posts to a blank page when set a date to expire. same with me. Any ideas?

Read Installation Instructions- Yes, it does work with Custom Post Types

I did not read the installation instructions carefully and thought the plugin would not work on CPTs. However, when I realized I did not configure it properly, I have come back here and changed my review. No issues at the moment. I like that it is a light-weight plugin. Not super fancy., but it works. Not seeing any follow-up from the developer on many user's questions in the support area.

Plug-in uncompatibility

Doesn't work with SiteOrigin PageBuilder. When activated, PageBuilder doesn’t show up in Post/Page editor.

Broke Admin

I haven't tried to debug what's wrong, but as soon as I installed the plugin I was unable to see the editor icons nor actually click on the "edit" to change the publishing date or the expiration date. This is a fantastic plugin idea, hope to see it fully functional.
