Expiry marks — after a certain period of time — a chosen article as "obsolete". The article can be updated by editing or by confirming that the article is still up-to-date. Expiry is the ideal basis for an archiving system. Outdated articles can be moved to an archive after being queried.

  • An author can add an expiration date to an article.
  • The expiry date can automatically be postponed to the future for a specific period of time.
  • Several authors: There can only be one expiration date. The user who originally entered the expiration date will be informed of the change.
  • There is no limit to the number of expiration dates with respect to users.
