Handling Expired Coupons

    I just started my site but I can already see expired coupons are going to be an issue if you keep them.

    I set the coupons to move to an expired category and under display settings > home page I added a custom query to not show my expired category.

    This works but now the expired coupons no longer show when you view categories under expired.

    There has to be a way around this. I can’t imagine a script being at version 7 and still having issues like this.

    I’d be interested in knowing how other people are handling the expired coupons.

    301 Redirect Expired coupons to Store page is the best solution period. I did some code that does this though it falls flat if you have another tax term with the same name eg, a tag with the same name as the store. Still trying to find a fix for this issue.

    I don’t really want to release it due to the issues.

    If you have a taxonomy or post type term which is same as the store, this breaks it completely. The permalink doesn’t even need to be the same – its just the way WordPress queries taxonomy terms.

    If anyone else has a more elegant solution, I am all ears.
