Ability to select Private Page as Parent
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".
Also would be nice to be able to the same with drafts intended for future release.
I am building a members only site at present and I am reading threw the codex to find a way round this issue..
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.
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.
