  1. After expire, set product to "out of stock"-status

    I want the product to still be listed in the shop after expire (not a "draft" since there are over 100K emails linking to the product). If I could get the status "out of stock" on a expired product it would be optimal for my business. The cart button is removed automatically on a sold out product, and that´s the same status as expired for us.

    So please fix the option to change stock status to 0 (sold out) on expire!

    • Set expiration via PHP function (for when I'm auto-creating posts)

      Would love to have a PHP function I can use to set/update a post's expiry settings from anywhere, like so: expirationdate_updatedate($postid, $args).

      Reason being I have posts auto-create using save_post(). I can emulate your meta values but I don't think that actually schedules expiration.

      I skimmed your code to see if there was already something like this I could call, but it seems to schedule based on the values of the meta box, which is hard to emulate from other places.

      • Add a tag after expiration

        Hi,

        I have a site where I use the Expired tag on all the expired posts. I use a plugin to remove all the tagged posts from the main page of the blog ...where I don't want them to be seen. Of course with this setup I have to manually check (every couple days) for all the expired posts and tag them ... which is very time consuming. I just started using Post Expirator plugin and now will move the expired posts to Drafts area. This way I can tag them all from the Drafts section. I hope that some…

        • Hide Post Expirator in specific custom post type

          Great plugin, Aaron!

          I was wondering if you could add filter to hide Post Expirator in a specific custom post type. I'd like to garant that some post types (created through CPT UI, for example) don't be set to expire accidently by the user.

          • Select default How to Expire option

            Fantastic plugin and very flexible but would save time (and complexity for Contributors) to have a default How to Expire (selected via the Settings page) instead of having to select from the drop down list each time.

              • WooCommerce : Disable purchase/add to cart functionality at specific time/date but keep product visible

                Your plugin is a life saver in so many cases ... but this one is missing !!

                A client wants some of his WC products (food menus) available until specific time/date is reached. Then the products shoud be visible without purchase/Add to cart functionality.

                Thanks

                  • Custom Post Types

                    IN the plugin, choosing a post status to assign to the deleted post, all the choices your plugin provides are,

                    Draft
                    Deleted
                    Private

                    I cannot use deleted, nor draft or private. I use those for other reasons on my site that manages event postings (a lot of them).

                    I created a custom post status type – “Expired”, just for the use of this plugin, but your plugin won’t list the status “Expired” because your post status list is hard coded and won’t draw from WordPress.

                    I can edit your plugin file to list it, but this makes unnecessary repetitive work…

                              • Redirect upon expire would be AWESOME!!

                                Add an additional option to simply redirect to another url upon expiration. That would be AWESOME and would save site admins from having to deal with broken links when expired posts are no longer accessible.

                                    • Reminder about expiration

                                      I have a page where I need to change some links every year, such re-write the page/article.
                                      Therefore it would be great to get a reminder about an expiration, if requested (on/off), so I can write the new post at the same time (or even a few days before).

                                      • Two (or more) expiration dates on a post

                                        It would be useful to be able to set 2 (or perhaps even more) expiration dates for a post. We have a main/front page where we just want posts that are still earlier than the (main) expiration date, but we also want an archives page where we keep the posts for a longer duration (but we still want them to expire). It would be great if it was possible to have the widget change the category when the first expiration date is reached, and then to set it to "draft" when the second one is reached.

                                        • Publish --> Visibility --> Checkbox "Keep post on top"

                                          Hi, It would be great to have the possibilitiy to uncheck that option once the post is expired.

                                          Some special post (with category "actual") we show at the start page on top for a certain time and then it will be moved to its specific category. There the order by date is not as expected caused by checked and unchecked posts in the same category.

                                          Great plugin!
