I've been a user for quite some time, but this is the first time I've stumbled upon a thing like that (maybe because i don't think i've ever used it)
I needed some static pages that I didn't want to appear in the auto-created template menu bar.
So I've set up some private pages with permanent link leading to them and made hyperlinks manually in sidebar.php.
Now when I try to access those pages I'm getting an error saying:
Sorry, no posts matched your criteria.
In the meantime all other permalinks, that are not set as private are working just fine...
I've been looking around and can't figure out a way to make that work...
Any help would be much appreciated.
