How to: Automatic erasing of old posts ?

  • Hi all,
    I use WP as an aggregator, and found myself with a database of too many posts.
    Is there a way to automatically have posts which are older then X months be erased ?

    Thanks a lot for any help!

    Althoug not automated – GD Press Tools has a feature to delete posts older than a certain date.

    1) Write your own plugin and setup a cron job to run daily. (This should not be too difficult)
    2) Search the plugin forums for something that has already been written.
    3) Pay someone to write this feature for you.

    There’s a good write up on how to use scheduling here.
