Post Expiration Date

Descripcion

This is a free, lightweight plugin designed to make WordPress posts expire at a set time, on a given date. This was done in the simplest, most expedient manner possible so conflicts should be minimal. Dependencies are minimal as well. WP Cron is not used or required. You can choose from a JQuery datetime picker or the browser’s native option.

How it works: You can set an expiration date (an expiry) for a post by selecting the date and time. This uses local time, not GMT, UTC, etc. When the expiration date and time have been passed the post will be moved from Published to Draft status. Picking a date/time is optional — not all posts require an expiry.

Post Expiration Date plugin is ideal for use with coupons, deals, sales, and any other events where would would want the corresponding WordPress post to be hidden (or in some way changed) at a scheduled time.

FAQ

What date-time format is the expiration date stored in?

February 2, 2019 1:01 AM will be stored as « 2019-02-02T01:01 » in your postmeta table.

Why does the date/time formatted like that?

We opted to use the ISO 8601 standard for date and time format. This can be manipulated if you’d like to view it in other ways, as we do in the « Exp. Date » column of the Posts page.

My date-time entry text box is blank! What do I do?

This is because your browser does not support input type= »datetime-local ». If this happens to you please use the settings to change to the « Universal » picker or use Chrome for your browser. Newer verions of this plugin (v1.2 and above) fix this issue and give you the option for different datetime pickers.

I've been using this for a month and it's exactly what I was looking for. The date/time picker is easy to use and I appreciate the display of expire dates on the "all posts" page. Thanks!

This plugin is in its result absolutely that what I was looking for. Unfortunately a lot of persons are supposed to use this backend and there is neither mentioned the necessary time format nor the browser with which it will work with better. Please be so kind and add at the postsettings directly the information about the required time format and, if I am allowed to state a wish, so take as expire time - if not mentioned - 00:00 as default settings. Thank you in advance! Petra
