Ability to select Private Page as Parent

  1. jasongolod

    I am in the middle of adding a lot of content to an existing site. I am currently creating content using Private pages, however I noticed that I cannot select a private page when creating a new sub-page. It would be nice to have that ability so that I will not have to remember to assign the correct parent when I make the top-level parents "live".

    Thanks,

    Jason

    I'm going to have quite a few private pages for a member area, it would be nice to give them a hierarchy structure.

    Understanding that multiple users can create posts and you would not want someone to misplace a private link, perhaps these private pages can be called something else, like Member Only.

    Public
    Member Only
    Private
    ect.

    I don't understand why this isn't an option. It's just bad bad architecture not to have this. Ya, everything is 'ideally' public, but I know of few wordpress sites that don't have a private page or two.

    I had to implement this without hacking the core a while back for a client of mine. There is a bug report here: http://core.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/8592

    It only runs on the full page editor (not the quick edit) but I could package it up into a plugin and look into making it work on the quick edit if anyone is interested.

    I would love to see that plugin.

    I also had a look at the tracker and it seems it will be added in the next release (I hope) but it would be great to have a plugin in the mean time to add this functionality.

    It's strange that this wasn't solved a LONG TIME AGO as the bug was reported quite a few years ago.

    Should be standard functionality really :)

    This would be pretty useful. A plugin would be great if it were developed.

    Fingers crossed!
