Featured Post Expiration
Featured Post Expiration is a plugin that will expire Featured ads before the actual expiration date or just change featured ads to a non-featured after specified time.
This plugin requires Classipress to work.
Why should I use this plugin?
Classipress does not support Featured ads to expire after some time, they will expire like normal ads. It also does not support Featured ads to become normal ads after some time, when they are still live.
If you are looking for a plugin that will expire basic ads, please use this plugin.
That’s what this plugin does.
On the Settings screen you can choose how many days Featured ads should stay as Featured, after that you can choose whether to expire ads or make them normal. You can do this for normal ads that ware added without any membership package, or for ads that were added under membership packages. And you can put different settings for every membership package that exists on your site.
You can also choose how often you want the system to check for expired Featured ads. There are three options here: Daily, Twice daily and Hourly. For best results it is best to choose Hourly option.
A nice feature is also an email option to notify users when their ads change status from Featured to Normal.
There is also a logging option for admin to see what was going on and how and when ads were removed.
New feature with version 2.4.0 are two counters on the admin bar. One will show you number of registered featured ads and the other number of days until next featured ad expires.
This plugin has been tested on Classipress 3.4.x, 3.5.x and 3.6.x.
