What I do is to sort by finished publishing

That's an option but I still would have to manually select them to batch file anything. Thanks for you input though.

Same problem.

Sort by "finish publisihing descending" makes:

    • First it shows all articles with end of publication date after today.
    • Then all expired articles (the ones we want to filter).
    • And then all articles with no end date.

So, you do not know where beging and where end the expired articles in the list.

PS: with more than 5000 articles to manage, this is not the most comfortable
PPD: Just a comment. Editors often ask me confused: why in Joomla when the "end of publication date" is reached, the article does not become "unpublished"? I tell them that they become "expired", but they insist that "expired" is the reason why it is not published, but not the status.
