Description

We use our blog for a number of purposes, including populating the "News and Announcements" section of our web site. Currently, I manually remove time-sensitive posts when they are no longer relevant. It would be helpful to have a plug-in like this one, which allows you to assign posts an expiration date: https://wordpress.org/plugins/post-expiration-date/.

Hi Gina, thanks for the request.

The plugin is okay, but it runs a database query on every page load to determine whether posts are expired or not. This isn't great for performance.

I found another plugin that works and performs better:
https://wordpress.org/plugins/wp-post-expires/

I have added wp-post-expires to the Commons. (Internal reference - https://github.com/cuny-academic-commons/cac/commit/e387a140be2966548c056d701f3df576f8901ce3)

This will be available after the next maintenance release on April 23rd.
