There is a huge missing function in DIVI (and generally in wordpress) the ability to deal with expiring posts. For instance if we add a “news” section in the homepage ( the BLOG module in DIVI) when the last news expires (it could be too old to be considered a news) it could be useful to have the module simply disappear instead of showing a laconic message like “Sorry there’s no news for you!”. Basically a simple control in the blog module like: if there’s a post then show it, if not do not show the module at all.

The plugin is perfect for automating the management of seasonal sticky posts and important time-sensitive notices. Also, some themes rely on sticky posts for setting the featured content on the homepage, requiring you to manually change them out. This plugin allows you to set up future dates for expiring sticky posts at the time that you publish them, so you don’t have to log in and change it later.

That’s all I changed and it mostly works like a charm for me…
There are 2 issues I noticed:
1: Sometimes it loads most of the post, but not always right down to the end, especially if the post is edited afterwards…anyone with suggestions to ensure this doesn’t happen?
2: I’d love if the featured image would also show up, this would make it the ultimate flexible solution! Any thoughts here?
