Can't have Private parent and child pages, why? (6 posts)

    I am trying generate pages for specific users, and have that page have children pages. I can create a parent page and set it has Private. But if I try to add a new page, and set it as a sub page of the page I just created, the option is not there.

    If I set the parent as public, I can then create a new page and assign it as a child of the public parent page.

    Why is this? Is there any work around on this?

    Any direction would be appreciated. I have seen a lot of posts about it, but no solution.

    If you set the page to Private, it will be only viewable to registered user. Try it. After you logout, you can't go into that page yourself.

    I think you can use this: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wp-hide-post/

    Try it out. ;)

    Cheers!

    I don't want the privacy to be based on wether a user is logged in or not. They need to only have access their page, not others.

    I'm writing this for a plugin, so I can't use another plugin unfortunately.

    I might have to move this to the other forum. I figured this was just a regular WP issue...not really an plugin issue, but I can't use another plugin to fix this. Needs to be a "native" fix.

    I second this - why can't a page be a child of a private page? It's even annoying that a page can't be a child of a draft page, as long as that child page is also a draft...
