Thanks for your patience as I am still learning. Luccagenes 06:33, 20 July 2014 (UTC)<br><br> I have just added to the coding to expand the one year limit to two years (1 to 730 days) although for all practical purposes the recommended range would still be 1 to 365 days. Luccagenes 17:29, 20 July 2014 (UTC) <br><br> Steve, I also found something unusual (a glitch) with the operation of this template although some of it may be a common occurrence with the server. When the timer expires, the display will change (from OKAY to Expired) and the category is added to the bottom of the page (after about a 1 hour delay which appears to be normal and consistent). The concern is that the page that now has the “auto-outdated” category on it is not being added to the actual category page, [[:Category:Auto-outdated|Category:Auto-outdated]], even a whole day later (have tried several means to refresh the page). The only way to get it to display correctly is to edit and save the template itself at which point any and all expired pages are instantly posted on the category page. Afterwards, when a particular article page is then re-saved (the timer being reset) that page will be automatically and instantly removed from the category page as it should (this problem only occurs in the other direction).

This is apparently a known issue when placing a category on an article page using a template and there is no work-around. I have added an "Ambox" alert to inform visitors to this category page that it is necessary to update the template using a Null Edit in order to properly display ALL the currently "expired" pages.Luccagenes 16:35, 28 July 2014 (UTC)
== Maintenance tag on an archived page.<br> ==
Steve, on a related note (but separate), there is a maintenance tag on an archived page ([[Community News/Archive 2|Community_News/Archive_2]]) that was inadvertently saved with the archive and is now showing up in the outdated category listing. I was going to replace the current tag with a "notice" box with the text transferred to the new box (just to eliminate of the maintenance tag) but it is requested that the archive page not be edited. Is it okay to make this correction? Luccagenes 17:16, 21 July 2014 (UTC)<br>
Repaired (removed from category page) by adding the empty category as the parameter for the "outdated" template <nowiki>{{outdated|category=}}</nowiki>. Luccagenes 21:22, 27 July 2014 (UTC)
