If you are looking to change different settings like the date and the categories on your posts, this is a great plugin to do the job.

Five starts.

Kind regards

It works fine! I just had some issues with the Time Zone settings.

PERFECTION.

The best things in life are this simple! Without this plugin I had to come back to my website to remove posts that were meant more as updates. Now, after the information I've posted about (astrological) no longer applies, this plugin deletes it to the minute!

Works as described

I've tryed it and it's amazing!
Gives a full set of options for the post expiration not just change it to draft or delete wich is amazing, in my case I needed that at certain time a category would change and this does it!!

Works Great For Me.

I'm running WordPress 4.1 with a custom theme.
I installed the plugin, activated it, and did a test to change the status to draft in 10 minutes. After 10 minutes I refreshed my page and that status was now draft. Worked great.

This works on pages, posts, and even custom post types. I've been searching for something to do this since I'm not monitoring the site every day and I have notices and slides for upcoming events or special announcements that I don't want published after a certain date.

Great work. Thank You.

Seems to Be Working - Note your admin status
By , for WP 4.1

I use Ultimatum frameworks and design my own themes. I wanted to use this for a client site, and at first had trouble. I thought it may not be working with Ultimatum (a number of plugins are incompatible and/or quirky when used in Ultimatum). My test post did not expire or change categories. However, after opening my site in a private browsing window, the post was expired, though it still appeared on the browser window where I was still logged in as admin. So one more thing to check before discounting this plugin.

Simple and Effective

Worked perfectly for me. I have a fairly basic website with less than half a dozen plugins installed and the WP 2014 theme.

Simply does not work. Too bad.

This plug in simply does not do anything. I created several pages with expiration dates set. They never converted to draft status or stopped loading in the site. Moving on to another plug in to try. Too bad, I like the interface.

Works

I'm surprised this feature is not in core, but until then...

I do hope it's still being developed, I need this feature for some of my clients to keep working!
