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. Email notification about post expiration

    Hello,
    as you suggested, im writing my idea here. So, it would be nice if plugin can send mail to admin with notification:

    postxyz "with link" has expired. Categories which was applied to post was :category1, category2 and category3, and now, postxyz has been moved to "Archive" category, or Draft, or deleted...

    • Add custom post status

      I'm using a custom post status called "Archived". It would make sense to be able to set all posts to this status after expiration date.

      • Email notifications in prior and on expiration

        It would be great if the plugin sent email notifications to admin and post authors:

        1. ie. 2 weeks before expiration date of a post is going to be reached

        2. another email once the post expires

        These 2 messages could contain a different message ie. the one sent 2 weeks in prior of expiration could notify an author about the expiration coming. The 2nd one - that the post has already expired etc.

        • Add an "archive" feature instead of draft/delete/private

          I run a news site that has preview stories of events, and of course I want those previews to disappear off the homepage as soon as the events have happened. (I don't want to send people to events that are in the past, or have them click on a story only to find they're an hour or a day or a week late.)

          But I don't want the stories to disappear from my site entirely — I want them to be searchable in my archives, and I don't want people linking to these stories to have dead links because I've…

          • Add a dashboard widget to display post expiring in a certain amount of days

            It would really be helpful if you could display post that are to expire in a certain amount of days in your Word press dashboard area.

                • Option To Move Post To Scheduled...?

                  Hi Aaron,
                  I wonder would it be possible to move an expired post to scheduled instead of draft and also give an option to set a time (24hrs, 48hrs, 72hrs) to post back live to the blog..?

                  How difficult would this be..?

                  • 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.

                        • 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.

                                  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.
