Expiring Posts

Description

This plugin adds functionality to expire a post on a given date.

This plugin currently only works with the classical editor.

It does this by adding a new “Expires” date field in the Publish box.

By default posts don’t expire, but you can add a date instead.

Once that date is reached, the post is marked as expired and is no longer visible to the end user.

FAQ

If I enable this plugin, what will happen to my existing posts?

Nothing, the posts current post state will remain unchanged.

Will I be able to see expired posts?

Yes, they will be visible in the expired view within the post entry list for your post type.

Will this plugin work with custom post types too?

Yes.

If I have a post set to expire and I use the filter to disable expiry for a speicific post, what happens?

When the exp_disable_expiration_for_this_post filter is used, the UI for control post expiry will not be shown, and the post will not expire. In other words, the filter overrides post expiration.
