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".
(thinking…)

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. Please see below. Requests for a category that expires are duplicated under different headings. That's what I want.

    I am just asking to "count up the votes" for make it so a category can be automatically expired... Different ideas say the same thing. :)

    ....

    Thanks

  4. Translation files inclusion

    Created Dutch translation files I would like to send you for inclusion. Cannot find way to do this.

    Also, not all text in the plugin is in the .pot file. E.g.:

    Select the hierarchical taxonomy to be used for "category" based expiration.
    Expiration values for: page

    and some more.

  6. set expiration of individual slide show tiles.

    Post expirator shows on my slideshow to set a date for the whole thing. I'd love to be able to use it to expire individual tiles within that slideshow.

  7. Category replace defaults

    I like the widget that appears when I am setting up a page, but I am making a LOT of things that need to replace category. If the default area had the option to set defaults for each of my categories, for example (unless changed on page), Category X is going to Replace to Category Y after __ days

  10. 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...

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  13. 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…

  17. 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..?

  18. 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.

  19. 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.

  20. 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…
