Plugins: Post Expiring

These plugins allow us to set expiration date to posts.

We were using Post Expirator but I will switch to Post Expiring as it is 10 times smaller!

Post Expiring was the best written and most simple. Problem was there was no easy way of selecting all the expired posts. This is why I selected VA Simple Expires as it is almost similary small, but it marks posts in special group called Ended, on pair with Drafts, Private, etc.

Very advanced but very big

Note: Our old plugin Post Expirator was HUGE problem as it was slowing down almost half of the Wordpress admin area. Also, heardtbeat was on almost every 5 seconds. Don’t know why.

Plugin: Cron jobs management?

Important - WordPress Cron is depended on the User. WP Cron fires only on the page visit so it can be inaccurate.

Simply the best is WP Crontrol as it managed to remove my cron jobs and an UI is nice and as expected.

There is interesting plugin WP-Cron Control for specific task - forcing a cron exection when calling specific URL with secret hash.

Plugins: Content filtering

We need a way to filter imported posts based on some criteria - keywords in article.

Plugin Post Filter can only confuse a user. As it is triggered only on action publish_post, I think that really it is never executed on imported posts. This is why I disabled it for now.

Well, no - it is working correctly. I still don’t like it.

Slack notifications

Winner: Dorzki’s plugin

  • Slack Notifications dorzki is very small and efficient. Not extendable, but working as expected.

    Notes: when post is updated,

  • Slack is very ambitious but not maintained well. As seen on gedex/wp-slack, last update was 2 years ago.

    It supports unlimited events via custom hooks. There are also couple of free extensions, like this one for WooCommerce

  • WP Toolbox also has some basic support for Slack notifications.

And that’s about it.

Plugins: File Managers

These plugins are not Media Managers, only File Managers

  • Filester is from the Ninja Team company which buys plugins one after another and throws them in the trash while monetizing others. The plugin is really ugly and old-school and I couldn’t even look at it anymore. In this form, feel free to forget about it.

  • Bit File Manager plugin has an unattractive and outdated user interface.

Better way?
