Label Old Posts


As content ages (especially technical blogs), it may not be as relevant. This plugin automatically marks content older than a specified date with a customizable message. For example, if you have content that is older than 2 years, you might want to alert the user to check for new releases of the information.


  • The plugin will label your older posts with a customized message.


  1. Upload label-old-posts to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
  3. Place <?php do_action('label-old-posts'); ?> in your template for a piece of content in the location you’d like it to be labeled.


Can I customize the date that items are marked as old by?

Yup. Check the plugin settings.

Can I change the message displayed?

Yup. You can even use HTML.

Exactly what I needed. Basic knowledge of PHP and the WordPress System might be needed to insert the code at the right place. But that also gives flexibility. Works with WP 4.9.5 without problems.
