"Unpublishing" products on a specified date
« on: June 24, 2008, 20:12:21 pm »
I have some products that are only valid/available up until a pre-defined date ... is there any way I can "unpublish" them automatically (rather like setting the start/end publish dates in Joomla content)?

Thanks

Rob

I am also very interested in that kind of function. Being able to set a time span where products are available (visible) would really do the trick for my shop.

Another idea could be to hide a product that is out of stock (depending on the availability date in product specification)

Any help appreciated

i'd be interested in it too... someone has suggested a hack to ps_product.php (http://forum.virtuemart.net/index.php?topic=47990.0), but i don't know if it's been tried and with which result...
