[Plugin: WP Hide Post] Hiding hidden posts from the sitemap & elsewhere (2 posts)

    The description of WP Hide Post mentions that hidden posts still appear in your XML Sitemap. This isn't good for me; I don't want the address of my hidden posts appearing anywhere. I also want to discourage visitors from bookmarking them.

    Ideally, I'd like other plugins to recognise hidden posts and treat them as follows:
    - Site Map plugins should not list the page in the XML or human readable sitemap.
    - SEO/Robots Meta plugins should mark hidden pages "noindex" by default so they don't get indexed
    - Social Network integration plugins should not automatically publish hidden page references to social networks
    - Social Network bookmarking plugins should not generate bookmarking features for hidden pages
    - Facebook Like plugins should not add a Like button to hidden pages.
    - Automatic cross-linking plugins like SEO Smart Links should not generate links to them.

    Anyone else interested in hiding hidden posts more effectively?

    Cheers, Graham

    I've created an Idea for adding a Hidden page visibility to the WordPress core, since many other plugins can use this information. Please vote for it. Thanks, Graham
