I have searched and searched to see if there is a way to have an expiration date on my posts. But I have not been satisfied with the expiration plugins as they only allow you to delete a post or put it in draft status.
Some of my outdated posts still get linked to, so I want those visitors to still be able to access info. However, I would like to create a hack of some sort to keep related posts from displaying posts that I deem are "outdated."
I know that one way I can do this is with custom fields (key=status and value=outdated, for example). But then I don't know how to write an "If" statement in either the theme or the related posts plugin to make this happen.
Any ideas on this would be very appreciated.
