README

Automatically expire posts after a certain period of time. Checks the post's published and modified date to see if the post is expired and will perform an action on the post (draft/trash/delete it).

Usage

Registering Post Types

Posts that are expired can be made into draft or trash posts or outright deleted.

Register a post type to be drafted after a month

expiring_posts_add_post_type(
	$post_type,
	[
		'action'       => 'draft',
		'expire_after' => MONTH_IN_SECONDS,
	],
);

Register a post type to be trashed after a week

expiring_posts_add_post_type(
	$post_type,
	[
		'action'       => 'trash',
		'expire_after' => WEEK_IN_SECONDS,
	],
);

Register a post type to be deleted after a week

expiring_posts_add_post_type(
	$post_type,
	[
		'action'       => 'delete',
		'expire_after' => WEEK_IN_SECONDS,
	],
);

Register a post type to be updated after a week

expiring_posts_add_post_type(
	$post_type,
	[
		'action'       => 'update',
		'expire_after' => WEEK_IN_SECONDS,
		'update_args'  => [
			'meta_input' => [
				'key' => 'value',
			],
		],
	],
);

// Or use a callback to define the arguments. The callback
// is passed an instance of WP_Post.
expiring_posts_add_post_type(
	$post_type,
	[
		'action'       => 'update',
		'expire_after' => WEEK_IN_SECONDS,
		'update_args'  => fn ( WP_Post $post ) => [
			'post_title' => 'Expired: ' . $post->post_title,
		],
	],
);

By default, the post type will be set to be drafted after a year.
