If you set a topic to expire in say, two weeks. Can you extend it a week by waiting until the last day and change it to one week? Then it expires a week from the changed date?

You can edit the topic's main message at any time and change the experation date. However, it will always be calculated from the posting date. So if the message expires in 2 weeks and currently there is 1 day will expiry, you'll need to set the expiration date to 3 weeks.

How about this (feature request?).....Having a "custom" selection in the dropdown box and an additional text field where you can give it a specific date to expire on. Also, maybe have an expre to "hidden" where it's gon for everyone but the moderators so that at a later date they can reintroduce it.

Too much of a pain to implement?

Too complex to implement & too complex for the user.

Unfortunately there isn't a 3 weeks. It goes 1wk, 2wk, 4wk. If we want it to extend another week, we're boned.

Hmmm, I havn't used Expiry Date before on a topic, so I don't even know what it does. Does it just auto-lock the topic after the expiration date, or actually delete the topic and any replies?

Expiry settings relates to the announcment/sticky status, when it is reached the topic looses it announcment/sticky status.
