Drupal Enterprise 7: Scheduling Content to be Unpublished

The following instructions are for websites using the default UMN Drupal Enterprise 7 configuration.


In the University's standard Drupal 7 installation, content can be scheduled to be unpublished. An example might be that you have a news article on your site that informs users of a planned system outage on Friday night. Since the article is time-sensitive, you might want to unpublish it at some point during the weekend.


To schedule content to be unpublished

  1. Log in to your site
  2. Find the content
  3. Click the Edit Draft tab
  4. Scroll to the bottom of the form and click the Scheduling Options tab
  5. In the Unpublish On fields, enter a date and time
  6. Be sure to follow the pattern for entering the date and time
    1. Time is military (i.e., 3:00 p.m. is 15:00:00)
  7. Click the Save button
