    I have been looking around and can't seem to find anything on the matter. I was wondering if maybe someone here could give some insight. I am looking for a way (preferably a plugin) to cause posts to become 404 after they have been posted to my blog without having to change the title manually. I was hoping to do this automatically after the post has been posted for a certain time. This is all in Wordpress of course.

    So for example.

    at 5pm the blog post goes live.

    At 5:30pm plugin kicks in, changes post url automatically and now the post is a 404 redirect error/ the page is non existent. Any insight on this subject would be amazing, thank you!

    Why would you do that? Visitors wouldn't like that, nor the search engines...

    Weird request but possible. Require little knowledge on PHP. Check the date of published article, if the date is more than 30min, redirect further incoming request to a 404 or custom page.

    no plugin available but you can hire someone from freelancer for like %100 and tell him to read the post date and make it 404 if it's been like 2-3 hours.

    OK, I am curious, what is the purpose of this?
    I have just woken up and can think of no reason to do this.

    If you post further details you will get better information and advice.
