How to Control Access to Post Expirator

In May 2021, we took over running the Post Expirator plugin.

Post Expirator allows you to choose an expiry date for WordPress posts. When your post is automatically unpublished, you can delete the post, change the status, or update the post categories.

Until now, these features were available to anyone with post editing access. However, it's clear that some sites need the ability to restrict access to Post Expirator. That's now possible in version 2.6.0.

  • Go to “Settings” > “Post Expirator” in your WordPress admin menu.
  • Scroll down to the “Advanced Options” area.
  • You can now choose with user roles can use Post Expirator. Only the Administrator box is checked by default.

If you give a user role access to use Post Expirator, they will be able to see the metabox inside each post. They will also be able to use the “Quick Edit” settings:
