Feature request: access to never publish after
It would be nice to access the “never publish before” and “never publish after” date fields. If they weren't checked, they’d be accessible to the “if blank” condition.
It has one (weird) aspect, though -- if the article is not being published today, you can never find out the "never publish before/after" values... In other words, if you think you're going to be able to make a foreach loop that prints out a list of all articles and their date ranges, it won't quite work the way you intended because articles that are out of range won't be listed.
Well for the time being, just showing when published articles expire would be good for me. Maybe the "publish for" button can get at the otherwise unpublished articles somehow.
Are the publishing dates available in the cty file (.mdb)? If so, you could automate an email or a web page with this information for your customer
Uh oh, maybe I need an interface to Quick Books.
I just had a chance to look at the cty file. In the tblArticleSet table there are two fields: dtRetired, dtEffective. I know that Fog Creek has said here that they reserve the right to change the database structure, but as long as they don't change this table and those fields, you can use asp or other scripting tools to grab the dates.
