Introduction to Post Expirator

The Post Expirator plugin allows you to add an expiration date to posts. When your post is automatically unpublished, you can delete the post, change the status, or update the post categories.

There are a number of different ways that the posts can expire:

  • Draft
  • Delete
  • Trash
  • Private
  • Stick
  • Unstick
  • Categories: Replace
  • Categories: Add
  • Categories: Remove

After installing the Post Expirator plugin, you'll see a box in the right sidebar when you're editing posts. You will see the same box on all your post types. You can disable this box for specific post types by going to “Settings”, then “Post Expirator”, then “Defaults” and choosing “Inactive”.
