Private Posts Appear in Categories for Logged in Users
I have one wordpress installation running in which I happen to keep a lot of private posts (for managing other projects and ideas). As it is now, in the "Manage Posts" admin page, they don't show up in categories, even though I have categorized them on their individual edit pages. In fact, is this a new feature idea or a bug? I'm not sure.
When I am logged into the site and not on the admin side I also can see all the posts, but again they are not listed in the category lists. Private posts should be treated the same as public posts in every way, EXCEPT that they cannot be seen unless you are logged in.
I agree absolutely! The only difference between a private an public post is who sees it - it should always appear to the logged-in owner wherever a public post appears. The same goes for private pages, which I have mentioned in another "idea", and which I have implemented in my blog.
Ruzel and Tony,
Have you tried using the Post Levels Plugin [http://fortes.com/projects/wordpress/postlevels/]? I've found that once activated, it does exactly what you're asking for. When I am not logged in, I can't see any of the private posts. However, when I am logged in, I can see all of them -- in the archives, in the categories, etc. Furthermore, the plugin allows you to determine if anyone else can see them (depending on usr and post levels) and allows you to customize prefixes and suffixes.
too bad the post levels plugin is not for the latest WP version
Justin's Members plugin may be a start. There are a LOT of member management plugins these days.
