  • Resolved Troy Chaplin


    Great plugin! I have a question about using it with custom post types. The post expiration module appears on custom post type entries, but they always get moved into draft format once the expiration date is reached.

    Is there any plans in the near future to add options in the settings area to specify either draft or delete on various custom post types?

    Also, just a suggestion, I think there would be much value to have an option to completely disable this functionality on pages, posts, or custom post types. Are there any plans to add this sort of functionality in future releases?

    Thanks again for this plugin, big benefit to my current project.

    i need this too!
    my custom post types get the status draft, but i want them to get deleted

    Is there a way for the columns to have the header of “expires on” for the CPTs as well? when viewing the “all” for the CPT in the admin area.

    @troy @oliverspies The 2.0.0 version currently in testing will support the ability to do different defaults and things for custom post types.

    There is not currently a way to totally disabled it for a post type, but that could be added – please add that at

    @kcharity The columns should show expires on? – they do at least in the 2.0.0 version

    @aaron Thanks for the reply

    Interesting, it’s not showing up on my end. I do have 1.6.2 installed on WP 3.4.2. That could be partly the problem? Where is 2.0.0 @ and is it ready for a live site?

    Just published 2.0.0

    Hi there,

    On a single post’s edit page, is it possible to select the categories from their respective custom post types to ‘Add/Remove/Replace’ to?

    Right now I am only seeing categories from one post type “post”; but instead I want to see categories from the “activities” (for example) post type to expire to.

    right now it only supports the “categories” taxonomy. I’m still thinking through the best way to add support for other taxonomy types.

    Thanks, I will keep posted.
