I have some currently published pages – that run a slide show – which I want to be able to unpublish at a certain time, then a few hours later republish them.
I was hoping I could automate this a few days in advance by simultaneously setting an unpublish date and then a publish-on date which comes after the unpublish date. MODx doesn’t seem to allow this and automatically unpublishes the document if the publish-on field is filled in.
- Is there a setting to disable the automatic unpublish action?
- Is there a reason this hand-holding needs to be there? Would publishing a currently published document cause a problem in the database?
- If not, can we consider this a bug that needs fixing?
Is there a way to work around this?
