is there a module that can delete or prune nodes that does not get published after a certain amount of time has passed? Currently the node prune module doesnt work with the latest core release. Looking for alternatives if possible.

You could do this using the Rules module. If you enable the built-in scheduler submodule, you could create a set of rules/components like this (rough code to give you an idea, not a step-by-step walkthrough):

Component to delete content (Action set)

  • Action: Delete content

Rule to schedule content deletion (Rule)

  • Event: Content is created
  • Action: Schedule the "Component to delete content" after the specified amount of time

Rule to clear deletion on publishing (Rule)

  • Event: Content is published
  • Action: Delete the scheduled event for that piece of content ("Component to delete content")
