    Ug I got a problem. I set my page to private cause I don't want it on the navigation, and I made a link to it in the sidebar, but I didn't realize that no one else can see that page. How do I hide it but let anyone see it?

    I had this question too, as I wanted to send clients direct to private pages on my site.

    After setting up a page as private and thenchecing my navigation, the page didn't show up on the navigation - which is what I hoped.

    However, I now discover that "Private" is only viewable to site admins, so my clients can't actually see the content I wanted them to. They get an error 404 instead.

    My workaround was to install a membership plugin called wishlist that allows me to create different members and assign content for them. Wasn't cheap, but sometimes, solutions cost money.

    Have to support the community!

    I have this question, too.

    I want a page (or post) to be private except to editors. However, since editors hate any fuss, I don't want them to have to log in or register. This would work fine if I can just have the page not show up in the navigation toolbar, and just send them the url. How to have that page tab be invisible to people?

    Never mind. To help someone else: just mark page as private, and remember the title of the page to find it as url. It will also show up in your Edit Pages admin. Perfect.

    I'm wrong. It's still private. I would like the page not to appear in the tabs at the top, and yet still have an url that anyone can use.

    Help?

    The template tag, wp_list_pages(), is typically used by theme designers to display Pages in a nav bar. With the help of the Template Hierarchy article, determine what Template is displaying your Pages (probably header.php), then look for wp_list_pages and use the exclude=x argument to limit the Pages displayed.
