  1. Ability to expire (or auto-delete) a uploaded file

    I mainly use my blog for posting news an announcements. A lot of these announcements come with PDFs or JPGs that i subsequently post on my blog. I know that the best way would be to just link these files but some people simply do not provide you with links but only sent PDFs in emails. This of course adds up and up. As well PDFs are on my webspace that are way out of date but sometimes google links to them directly.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…

        • Strikethrough text instead of deletion of post

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

          • Show a pop up Error Message if Post Schedule is greater than the Post Expiration date

            Really wish the plugin have an error checking if when the expiration date is after the post schedule indicated by the user.

            • repeat / re-schedule a post

              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

                • Add the option to change to a new taxonomy term upon expiration.

                  For example, I have a Taxonomy of Event Types that is used with my Custom Post Type called Events. Event Types are Upcoming Events and Past Events. It'd be nice to be able to change to another term within that Taxonomy, i.e. when it expires it changes from Upcoming to Past.

                    Hi, I would love to see that the plugin can delete a tag from a post after expiration.

                    • Expire Based on Age of post and category

                      I pull in rss feeds into my site dynamically and assign to different categories, it would be awesome to set at the blog level a 30 day expiration on all posts based on their date and then choose what categories to apply this to.

                          • Add custom post types as expiration option

                            I love your plugin, Aaron!

                            I was wondering if you could add filter to target specific custom post types. I'd like to add an amount of time for auto-expiring posts, but only for a specific custom post type.

                              • EXPIRED to post title or first paragraph & list of recent posts

                                Could we have the option for the plugin to add the word EXPIRED (or whichever word the user chooses) to the top of the post or to the post title once the expiration date has passed?

                                It would also be nice to have the option of adding a short list of the most recent posts.

                                That way, if readers happen upon an older post, they could see that it had expired and that there is newer content for them to explore.

                                Thanks so much for this valuable plugin!

                                    • Set specific category(-ies) to Delete or Private automatically after a set number of days / weeks

                                      My site content is created by frontend users and all posts under one specific category must disappear ( either be deleted or changed to private) automatically after reaching a set number of days (or weeks). The current settings of the plugin cannot do that. Can we add this feature please? And if we can, it would be ideal to allow us to select any (multiple) categories to disappear after the pre-ste time frame. Thank you.

                                          To include woo commerce product category when a product expires. The woo commerce product categories do not show and thus the change category do not function.
