I suggest you ...

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. Make category expire

    I would like a category, say ¨featured¨ to expire on every or select posts after X amount of hours. This would be incredibly useful for people that have featured categories or sliders displayed on their home page and do not want the posts to remain there forever.

    • Remove associated images of expired post

      I want to use this to delete both posts and the images that are included in that post. I'm not sure if WordPress gives this level of granularity but if it was possible that would be fantastic.

      • Capability to expire for the home page (but not delete or make a draft)

        be able to auto expire (by category?) posts from the home page but still be available on site via category searches.

        • add the ability to sort/display posts by expiration date, nearest first (event list)

          Hi,

          I need a category or custom type of posts that
          1. Expires at a predetermined date & time.
          2. Is displayed in order of expiration date, soonest first.

          I'm sure this would be wanted a lot, but I can't find anything suitable anywhere. I have searched everywhere and every forum. I'm sorry if I've missed something previously answered here - I did look.

          I don't want a calendar, just some extra functionality for posts.

          As as interim, I have installed a plugin to expire the posts, but they still display in order of date published. Manually setting the publishing…

          • Make the time until offer expires run backwards.

            Instead of Wednesday May 29th, 2013 10:42pm (let's say), could you make it 3 days 5 hours, 3 minutes until post expires? (think daily deals timers).
            Cheers, good jobs with the plugin

            • Add option to return a 410 error code upon deletion

              The 410 (Gone) status code SHOULD be used if the server knows, through some internally configurable mechanism, that an old resource is permanently unavailable and has no forwarding address.

              This would be the correct procedure for SEO purposes, rather than returning a 404 error code.

                • Filter to control which Custom Post Types expirator shows up on

                  Of the 7 custom post types I'm using on this site only one should have the option to be expired. I'd like a filter to control which CPTs show the Expirator metabox.

                  Bonus points for adding a UI to control which CPTs it shows up on.

                    • Block "Disable" choice for certain users/roles when creating a new post

                      Currently, when you have "Auto-Enable" turned on in the general plug-in settings, when users begins to create a new post, they have the ability to turn off the expirator.

                      It would be great if you could limit this option to certain users or roles, so they don't have the ability to remove the expirator from their new post.

                      Only should administrators and other granted roles should have the ability to alter these settings.

                      • Change title and footer when Post expires.

                        Please make your plugin nearly perfect by
                        1-Adding "EXPIRED" or any other custom word in Post title or heading after post exipre.For example, after post expiration change title from " Get 50% discount on Plugin" to "Get 50% discount on Plugin-EXPIRED"
                        2-After post expiration, cahnge footer from "Post expires at 10:38am on Sunday September 29th, 2013" to "Post has been EXPIRED at 10:38am on Sunday September 29th, 2013"
                        Both things will improve the quality of contents and less annoy the visitors.
                        Thanks

                          • Setting fixed time of expiration

                            First of all thx for gr8 plugin!
                            Options to set default time for post expiration (to 23:59 or any other time and disable time from posts edit screen) so users would just have to specify date (of event) would be a great feature.

As well PDFs are on my webspace that are way out of date but sometimes google links to them directly. Therefore I would welcome and give a donation for a function that would allow to set a…

                                  I suggest that after expiration a post's content would be striked, instead of deleting the entire post, thus getting less 404s.

                                        Hi there,
                                        I have a couple of short stories. I only want 3 of them online at the same time. So I'd like to put a start and end-date to that post and need an option to repeat that every 5 weeks or so
