Major Problem: Everyone able to see pending review and draft posts (5 posts)

    Just what the title says. Everyone on the blog is able to see the unpublished posts: pending review and drafts. How do I stop this so only certain levels are able to see this?

    Are you using an older version of wordpress? This was an issue previously:

    Hey, thanks for responding! Well, it says that version 2.3.2 is supposed to be the version fix but that's the version that I have. And still, it shows all pending posts and drafts to any user. As a back up plan, I've been making everything private but I don't always want to do this. Any thoughts on this?

    I've got the same issue with v2.6.1. Haven't tried if it applies to all drafts, but I do know that it applies to drafts that were published once and have been 'transformed' into a draft again..
    I know that that might be useful to some, but I have them as a draft for a reason (to not show up on my site yet), but that obviously doesn't work as it should..

    Anyone else still having this issue?

    I see the same issue with v2.6.1. If you open a published page, change the status to pending review, make edits, then save -- your "published" version is updated with the changes you made, even though you haven't "published" since making the edits (the status is still "pending review").

    I'm not really sure how the Pending Review status is intended to work in WordPress. Are you supposed to be able to take a published page and change it to pending review?
