[Plugin: Post Expirator] Posts should stay published

    If you enable category expiration and set a category, it will stay published. Setting the category expiration does not change the status, only the categories.

    That’s what I did, as you can see here: http://www.soapfever.de/screenshot.jpg

    It worked fine a long time but now it changes the status at the expiring date to “draft” and doesn’t change the category (in the posts I set an expiration date, but no category in the expiration box).

    Are you trying to remove all categories from a post at expiration time?

    All posts have only 1 category (different ones) that should be changed into another category, which is the same at all posts ans which you can see in my screenshot.

    I see there is a category set in the settings page – can you verify that on the actual post that this 1 category is still selected? It may also be useful to enable the debugging log to see what is actually firing at post expiration time.

    The category in the settings is the one the post should change to at expiration date, isnt’t it? Because: that doesn’t work. After expiration it has still its old category and is set to draft. I want it to get the category from the settings page and still be published.

    No – the category on the settings page is just the default value that loads when you set the expiration on the post page. You still have to verify and set the category expiration on ever post page.

    If you make a new post, and make sure the category is set under the “Post Expirator” page, that should work. If it does not, let me know.

    Changing the category on the plugin settings page does not impact any previously saved posts. It would only apply to newly created posts.

    Ok, I’ll try. And then it will stay published after expiration, too? Because now it changes to draft.

    Correct
