DX Out of Date

Mô tả

DX Out of Date allows you to display a notification box on your posts
when a given amount of time has passed. Quite handy when writing tutorials
or any content that might get outdated due to external factors – now you
could automatically notify your readers after a given period.

You could configure the expiration time of your posts in the admin panel. Valid time units are days, months and years.

Currently the plugin options are:

  • Duration frame (days, months, years)
  • Period – “amount” of “duration” units (1 to 40)
  • Message – the message format for the notification box
  • Enable on template – a checkbox for displaying the outdated posts in the template. Must be checked to enable the plugin functionality
  • Skin manager – a list with skins for customizing the notification

Hỏi đáp

How to configure the duration/period settings?

These are the options that define what an “outdated” post means. For instance, selecting months in Duration frame and 6 in Period
means that every post older than 6 months would be qualified as “outdated”.

Can I add new skins?

Not without some small plugin modifications. However, the clean skin adds no styles at all, which means that you could
easily style the .out-of-date class in the frontend in your custom theme stylesheet.

Why would I need that plugin?

If you write tutorials or articles related to products/services in a given state,
updating them could affect the validity of your resources. A good example is one of
the resources that led to building the plugin – Brandon’s blog,
with his custom approach for marking tutorials as outdated.
