Auto Prune Posts won’t let me into dashboard

Whenever I activate this plugin, it kicks me out of the dashboard. When I try to log back in, I get a “Sorry, you are not allowed to access this page.” error. I then have to go into the FTP and change the name of this plugin’s folder before it will let me back in.

I can’t find any other plugins that will let me delete posts from multiple categories after x-number of days.

wp_mail is declared

When I active this plugin, I get a message from Sendgrid, my mail sending plugin, saying that wp_mail is already defined and so Sendgrid can’t work.

I don’t think it’s necessary for this plugin to declare wp_mail, so it would be great if that can be removed or made optional.

Plugin overloads mysql queries – process hits 107% before I had to suspend my account

I have a site with 43 blogs, and I installed the plugin on 3 or 4 of the sites. Some of these sites contain as much as 22,000 posts over 9 months. I tried to prune the sites to posts old as 3 months. Over would be cleared. I am guessing the plugin has a lot of pruning to do with 22,000 posts, but it drastically performs so many mysql checks, that the site can no longer connect to the database. Once I suspended the account, all my other sites came back and were accessible.

Activating the plugin “Auto Prune Posts” is leading to a Error 500

We have an internal webserver with wordpress installed that syndicates RSS News with FeedWordPress. Since this produces thousands of posts within a couple monthes we were looking for a plugin, that automatically deletes them again after some time (120 days).
I’ve been testing auto-delete-posts and auto-prune-posts.

The plugin is probably going to delete about 500-600 posts a day. Both plugins have produced error 500 after activation, until I found a post for auto-delete-posts, that suggests a codechange. Basically it reduces the amount of posts handeled at a time. Similar to what you do with your plugin “Mass Delete unused Tags”
