Hi, I was just trying the Embargo / Expiry module, but I can't get it to work. As soon as I save/publish a timed page, it's online, even if the embargo date is set to sometime in the future. (Tested on v 2.2.1). Any thoughts?

Looking into it now.

And the forum module really needs a way to subscribe to threads without posting.

Figured it out.

If you're logged in as an Admin, or on the Stage site, you can always see the page.

Log out and you shouldn't be able to see the page.

Sweet and simple. Should've tried that of course...
Thanks for the quick reply!

You should probably put a note in the readme/install doc explaining the admin-sees-all effect.

Hi everyone.
I've tried to use this module but I can't get this to work.
When I set a embargo and expiry time, I can see the page if I'm logged on as an administrator as simon_w said.
But, if I'm logged out, when the time comes, nothing happens. The page is not published, neither is removed when it expires.

Has somebody had this problem already?
Is there any solution to this?

Which version of the module are you running? And on which version of SS?

If you're using 0.2, you must have 2.2.2.
If you're using 0.1 and the decorator, you must be running 2.2.2, though I recommend updating to 0.2.
