Content Scheduler lets you control when content automatically expires, what to do with that content when it expires, and optionally provide notification to site contributors when the content expired.

Expiration Options

You control what happens upon expiration, including:

  • Change status to Pending, Draft, or Private
  • Add custom text to beginning or end of Post title
  • Unstick sticky Posts
  • Change Categories
  • Add and remove Tags
  • Move to the Trash

Notification Options

Content Scheduler can also notify you:

  • When expiration occurs

This reminder helps you keep content fresh, providing a reminder that content is out of date and needs updated or replaced. Content Scheduler lets you use notification tools without making any changes to content upon expiration, if you'd like.
