Unlist Posts & Pages

Description

Unlisted means your post/page will not come up in search results or on anywhere else on your site. Only those who have the link of the post can view it just like any normal post on the site.

The Post could still be seen by anyone, but only if they guess the link!

The plugin updates MySQL query directly in WP_Query class of WordPress to leave out the posts which are unlisted by the user. As this modifies the core WP_Query, this also works very well with all the plugins which pull out posts/pages from database by using WP_Query, For eg. Posts slider plugins, Advanced Posts in Ultimate Addon for Beaver Builder etc.

Limitations Of the Plugin

  • WP_Query has an a flag to ‘Suppress’ the filters. If any plugin is using this flag when querying the posts then the unlisted post will not be hidden in that plugin’s output.
  • Similarly if any plugin is using a custom MySQL query, then the unlisted posts will not be hidden from it’s output.

Reviews

Great Idea!

Great idea for simple hiding of content. Assume this is part of the limitations as listed above, but would love to see the plugin become a bit smarter with interaction of other plugins that expose the site hierarchy; such as visual sitemap builders like Page List. Could it also be that anything running a shortcode for page/post listings would also expose the pages/posts being hidden by Unlist Posts & Pages?

Thank you @nikschavan for the speedy fix.
