This is a great plugin for us. We have several authors, lots of categories, and many posts which are time-limited. It keeps everything current and moves it to alternative categories or deletes it as time goes on. Excellent support after reporting a minor glitch: Workaround found immediately and problem fixed in a few days. Highly recommended.

An addition I would be grateful for is: Setting a default time per posts (in the defaults) For the rest awesome! Working perfectly.
