Automatic Page Publish / Expire


This plugin is very useful for those who want to display their pages (on front end) from some specific date (start date) to some specific date (end date). It creates a meta box in Edit Page where Admin user can add start & end date/time. After End date has been passed, the page will expire and is saved as ‘draft’. Very fast, easy to use plugin for both single & multi site installation. It uses GMT time format.
