A simple plugin that allows you to set an expiration date on posts. Once a post is expired, “Expired” will be prefixed to the post title.
You can show the expiration status of a post using the [expires] short code.
The [expires] short code accepts 5 optional parameters:
expires_on – The text to be shown when a post has not yet expired. Default:
This item expires on: %s
expired – The text to be shown when a post is expired. Default:
This item expired on: %s
date_format – The format the expiration date should be displayed in
class – The class or classes given to the DIV element
id – The ID given to the DIV element
%s will be replaced with the expiration date.
