Filter Private Posts (5 posts)

    I'm trying to find a way to list all the "Private" posts in my blog, I cannot find a way to only list them, even if I type "Private" into the search for posts, it doesn't find them. I currently have to manually work my way though ALL posts (page by page).

    Does anyone know of a way to only list the "Private" Posts?

    Just did a pretty comprehensive search to find an answer. Didn't come up with anything.

    I've never hard of anyone doing that before, so my confident guess is that no, this isn't built into WP at the moment.

    But that doesn't mean it's impossible. :)

    I'm sure a pugin or hack could be created to pull all the posts from the database that have a 'post_status' value of 'private', and spit them out onto a page, just not by me.

    Hello... I have a plugin called "PrivatePost" which adds a page to the "Manage" section which will show you all your private posts.

    You can find it here:

    Thanks (blackc2004) that worked perfectly! It's a shame WordPress doesen't have more filtering controls built in to the (manage) section. The entries list can only grow larger and larger and I can imagine that (management) difficulity increases with it.

    Thanks again.

    Yes it is a shame... I've been with wordpress since the early days of B2 and was pushing the Developer back then for this stuff.

    I finially got fed up with it recently and created the plugin! Glad it works for you, let me know if you see anything that could be improved!
