Support » Plugins and Hacks » Auto-delete a post after a given date ?

  • I’m looking for a plugin that allows to automatically delete a post after a limit date which is defined in the administration panel, when the post is posted.

    I searched it for a long time, but without any success. Does anybody know something like that ?

    Sorry !

    Thx

    Working on a plugin for this feature right now, but seeing as I surely don’t want to use it I had a question for Lio.

    Would you be restricting the deletion of posts to a particular category or all categories? Are there going to be posts that will be there forever? Currently, I’m implementing the plugin to simply delete all plugins that are older than a specific date in all categories.

    It will delete all the comments associated with posts as well.

    Is this what you would like?

    Regards

    Here is the plugin that I spoke of. Please give it a shot and see if it works for you and also if there is anything more specific you want.

    Grab the plugin here

    What about an “auto-move plugin”? It may be useful for some people to have an “old listings” or something. So instead of deleting the post it would be cool to have a plugin that moved a post after a certain date to another category….just a thought.

    Nice idea, that shouldn’t be too hard to make. Next version. 🙂

    Yeah I didn’t think it would be, I’m just not that far along with programming otherwise I’d make it myself;)

    Thank you Cypher for the plugin. I did not try it yet, but it seems to be perfectly what I was looking for.

    EncryptDesigns’ notice seems to me very relevant : an auto-move plugin would be maybe a good compromise…

    Any updates Cypher? I would love a plugin that would auto-move entries:)

    Hey any updates Cypher? Moving my posts one by one is fun and all but having it run automatically would be super!

    Sorry for not replying back folks, I was out of the country for most of July. I’m back now and working on the plugin again.

    Expect something in the next few days.

    Weeehooooooooo! I’m excited:)

    Hi Cypher,
    Thanks for making this plugin, I am looking for a plugin that will allow me to enter the date (or amount of days) that i want the post to be deleated. I only want this for a few of my posts and not all. For example, I have a section with training events that are obviously on a certain day. After that day passes I want the post to disapear. Is this what this plug in does? Or does it move it to another category – as that isn’t a problem for me? I am just a bit reluctant to download the plugin as i am not sure if it will get rid of ALL my posts, which i don’t want it to do.
    Thanks in advance for your response.

    Sonja1234,

    In it’s current incarnation this plugin will delete ALL posts that are older than your set date, or move ALL posts into a single category.

    Since I’m currently adding the feature to do the moving of posts, I could just as easily add an extra feature to the deleting of posts that allow you to restrict deletion to only a single category.

    If that works, lemme know and I’ll incorporate it into the next release.

    Regards
