Post Expirator


The Post Expirator plugin allows the user to set expiration dates for both posts and pages. There are a number of different ways that the posts can expire:

Categories: Replace
Categories: Add
Categories: Remove

For each expiration event, a custom cron job will be schedule which will help reduce server overhead for busy sites.

The expiration date can be displayed within the actual post by using the [postexpirator] tag. The format attribute will override the plugin
default display format. See the PHP Date Function for valid date/time format options.

NOTE: This plugin REQUIRES that WP-CRON is setup and functional on your webhost. Some hosts do not support this, so please check and confirm if you run into issues using the plugin.
