The Scheduler extension is now available from:
Its primary job is to create publish and expiration dates (or
appearance and disappearance) that are configurable by the content
editor. These may be set in the “meta” area of the page editing
screen, and include a calendar-style date picker, thanks to Dan W.'s
wonderful LowPro library (and his date_selector behavior). These
dates only affect what may be found from the ‘live’ site. All pages
are accessible when in ‘dev’ or ‘preview’ mode.
Unfortunately, the extension does not affect iteration over children,
etc. I will probably fix this limitation this week, as it affects a
great many usage patterns in Radiant for generating navigation, etc.
In the meantime, enjoy the extension. Here’s a quick installation
- Use subversion to checkout or export the above URL into
vendor/extensions of your Radiant project.
- Run ‘rake production db:migrate:extensions
radiant:extensions:scheduler:update’ (substitute development if you
are using that env)
- (Re)start your server.
- If you want to run the extension tests, make sure to run ‘rake
db:test:prepare’ before you begin.
