Automate your Joomla workflow.

Note: Due to very low demand, CW-autoarc will not be ported to Joomla 4. It will still be available for Joomla 3 as long as this makes sense, but there will be no updates any more beyond bug fixes and security updates.

CW-autoarc is a Joomla® plugin, to perform timed operations on articles and K2 items in selected categories. You can move items to another category or simply send them to the Joomla archive.

All actions will be executed on the expiration date of articles (Finish Publishing). This plugin allows you to define some rules, what should happen with an article or item after it's expiration, instead of the default action of simply unpublishing it.

The plugin enables you to set up rules, to define what should happen with articles or K2 items from one or more categories, when they expire on their "Finish Publishing" date. the following actions can be assigned to these rules:

  • Move Joomla! articles or K2 items to another category

    Select pairs of source and target categories. All articles or K2 items in any of the selected source categories will be moved to their respective target category when they expire.

  • archive Joomla! articles

    Select one or more categories. All articles in any of the selected categories will be set to "archived" when they expire.

  • Extend or discard the expiration date

    Set a timespan in days and/or months, to extend the expiration date of any item after the action was performed, so that they will be unpublished eventually. Alternatively the expiration date can be removed altogether.
