WordPress Post Expirator 2.3.0 Released!

One of the top voted features is now available – email notification upon post expiration!  This is disabled by default, but you can easily enable it on the settings screen.  There are also some new expiration types available: Trash, Stick & Unstick!

Some of the key features in this version are:

  • New: Email notification upon post expiration. A global email can be set, blog admins can be selected and/or specific users based on post type can be notified.
  • New: Expiration Option Added – Stick/Unstick post is now available.
  • New: Expiration Option Added – Trash post is now available.
  • New: Added custom actions that can be hooked into when expiration events are scheduled / unscheduled.
  • Fix: Minor HTML Code Issues

Version 2.2.2 did deploy a fix for the new quick edit that snuck in – it was causing the expiration type to get reset to “Draft” if the quick edit option was used.  Sorry about that, it’s been resolved?

For a complete list, please see the changelog.

WordPress Post Expirator 2.2.0 Released

First, let me just say Thank You for all the plugin love and support!  I use this plugin on a regular basis, and since it’s been functional, and working – I haven’t had a need to push out any updates.  This weekend, I figured I’d devout a little time to give it a little TLC!

Some of the key features in this version are:

  • New: Quick Edit – setting expiration date and toggling post expiration status can now be done via quick edit.
  • New: Bulk Edit – changing expiration date on posts that already are configured can now be done via bulk edit.
  • New: Added ability to order by Expiration Date in dashboard.
  • New: Adjusted formatting on defaults page. Multiple post types are now displayed cleaner.
  • Fix: Minor Code Cleanup

For a complete list, please see the changelog.

There are a few other things I hope to tackle in the near future from the feature requests, so please hang tight!  If you have certain features you would like to see please add them to the Feature Requests Lists.

WordPress Post Expirator 2.0.0 Released

wordpress-logo-notext-rgbI’m happy to announce that the 2.0.0 version of Post Expirator is now available!  This is a major update to most of the underlying code, and a slight logic shift in how things are done to be more flexible for additional options to be added down the road.  I spent extensive time testing all of the various aspects, and migrations path.  So, you should have no issues upgrading!

All posts that were scheduled using a 1.x version of the plugin will be migrated to use the new scheduling format and should expire as planned.

Some of the key features in this version are:

  • New: Revamped the expiration process – the plugin no longer runs on an minute, hourly, or other schedule. Each expiration event schedules a unique event to run, conserving system resources and making things more efficient
  • New: Added the ability to expire to a “private” post
  • New: Added the ability to expire by adding or removing categories. The old way of doing things is now known as replacing categories
  • New: The type of expiration event can be selected for each post, directly from the post editing screen
  • New: Ability to set defaults for each post type (including custom posts)
  • New: Renamed expiration-date meta value to _expiration-date
  • New: Revamped timezone handling to be more correct with WordPress standards and fix conflicts with other plugins
  • Fix: Removed kses filter calls when then schedule task runs that was causing code entered as unfiltered_html to be removed

For a complete list, please see the changelog.

The plugin can be downloaded at the WordPress Plugins Page.  Enjoy!

Update: Version 2.0.1 has been released to finish removing the old scheduled event.
