I searched the private tags but I can't find anyone with an identical problem. It's so simple -- I made some posts private, thinking I would need to access them again, and sure enough I do.
But they immediately disappeared from my dashboard/"manage posts" screen and now I can't find them to save my life, including being logged in as Admin.
I *can* view them outside the admin tool, using the original known urls, when I'm logged in as admin -- I just can't find them within the admin tool so I can make them public again.
Oh, and I'm using 1.5.1 and can't upgrade to 2.x yet.
Thanks for any ideas ....
