    Hi there! AMAZING plugin! I’m using this as part of order management system that I’m building and it is very nearly a perfect fit.

    However, I can’t get Edit Flow’s custom statuses to save when a post is private. I have a purchase_order post type all of these posts are created as private. I don’t want the outside world being able to view these orders after all. I also don’t want Customers to be able to see or edit orders that they did not create. The capabilities around the private visibility status gave me this out of the box. However Edit Flow’s custom statuses don’t save when the visibility is private. Is there a way to get custom statuses to work with private posts?

    Thanks in advance!

    Unfortunately, not out of the box 🙁 You’d either need to rethink how your private posts work, or create a custom taxonomy for functionality similar to custom statuses.

    Thanks for the fast reply! I can think of a number of ways to get around this so it’s no big deal. I’ll be blogging about this solution once development is complete.
