using wp-sentry on pages (5 posts)

    Hi every body, I'm a newbie with a few notions of Html and much less of Php...
    I have been trying to use Pete's wp-sentry plugin for pages with jillij theme since this option shows up when editing a page... But when I activate Sentry for a page; what ever the restriction, to a group or one single member, sentry hides the page from any body, registered or not and even the administrator...
    Am I pushing too far my expectation with sentry or is there a proper way to do it which I missed...?
    Thanks for your help.

    Hi Haddok,
    WP Sentry does support pages. Unfortunately, many wordpress functions ignore all private posts/pages, and the function that the jillij theme uses to create the drop-down menu of pages (wp_list_pages) is one of them.

    This is a known issue, and I'm looking into ways of making wp_list_pages (and the other internal wp functions) respect and show private posts/pages, but for now about the best option is to use a theme with a sidebar and make use of the page-listing sidebar widget.

    I understand that's not ideal, but it's the best we have right now while we try to get WP to play nice with its own features. :)

    Sorry for the trouble.

    Hi Pete, glad to speak to you ! You did a great job already and I would like to tell you my admiration (;~>)
    I'll wait and see and meanwhile change my theme as you suggest...

    Take care and thanks also for the very swift answer to my question.

    Hi Pete

    Is a solution to the issue of

    making wp_list_pages (and the other internal wp functions) respect and show private posts/pages
    imminent? Is this an issue that is being addressed at core level - or are you having to deal with this through your plugin?

    Much appreciation for the work you've done.

    As far as I know, this issue is not being addressed in the core.

    I also have not come up with a way to do this that I am happy with, so unfortunately the answer is that there is no fix for this problem at this time.
