Can't have Private parent and child pages, why?

  • I am trying generate pages for specific users, and have that page have children pages. I can create a parent page and set it has Private. But if I try to add a new page, and set it as a sub page of the page I just created, the option is not there.

    If I set the parent as public, I can then create a new page and assign it as a child of the public parent page.

    Why is this? Is there any work around on this?

    Any direction would be appreciated. I have seen a lot of posts about it, but no solution.

  • If you set the page to Private, it will be only viewable to registered user. Try it. After you logout, you can’t go into that page yourself.

    I think you can use this: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wp-hide-post/

    Try it out. 😉

    I don’t want the privacy to be based on wether a user is logged in or not. They need to only have access their page, not others.

    I’m writing this for a plugin, so I can’t use another plugin unfortunately.

    Sorry, i can’t help with that. Not knowing much about writing for plugin. Cheers! 😉

    I might have to move this to the other forum. I figured this was just a regular WP issue…not really an plugin issue, but I can’t use another plugin to fix this. Needs to be a “native” fix.

    I second this – why can’t a page be a child of a private page? It’s even annoying that a page can’t be a child of a draft page, as long as that child page is also a draft…
