This plugin lets you set an expiration date for posts. After that date, the posts will be deleted. This is done in a new subsection of the Advanced Options section of the post edit page. Just pick your month and put in the date and year and your post will automatically be deleted at the end of that day. Note that the expired posts are DELETED. Be sure that you want to do this. I disavow any responsibility if you delete your entire blog because you weren’t being careful. This plugin uses WordPress’s cron feature. This allows you to set a time for things to happen, such as deleting a post. All well and good, except that it doesn’t actually happen until someone looks at a page AFTER that time. And then it takes a few seconds to actually happen. The net result for this plugin is that expired posts will still be there for the first page view of the deletion day and possibly several more if there is a lot of traffic around midnight. The post will be deleted, but not precisely at midnight. Such is WordPress’s cron. Further Instructions Any other information I have can be found at the Atropos Homepage. License I dunno. How about creative commons attribution? Sound ok? Good.

The plugin ran into some errors

Sorry, pal! The plugin couldn’t pass all our tests. No hard feelings, right?
