Support » Alpha/Beta/RC » privacy settings: wishing and hoping

  • I am delighted with the look and feel of this interface. This is a major improvement over 2.6.5. It’s fun to use and makes me want to write and play. I would like to see easier and different management options for privacy settings. And I have a feature request for a “bulk quick edit” option.

    Under Settings> Privacy in 2.6.5, there was a third option that I do not see in 2.7 RC1:

    “I would like my blog to be visible only to users I choose.”

    I miss this setting as a default for the whole site. I find this especially useful when drafting the design for a site that is not yet ready for the public.

    [As an aside (because I know this is a wordpress.org forum), will users of wordpress.com suddenly be surprised to have their formerly exclusive blogs go public when 2.7 arrives?]

    The bulk edit feature is elegant and allows the user to quickly change the status of any and all entries. I wish there were a blog-wide settings feature that would allow all posts to be private or password-protected by default, rather than having to adjust this on a case-by-case basis as each one is drafted.

    The default on the bulk actions pulldown menu is “actions” (more of a label indicating options you could select. Probably helpful or necessary for learning how to navigate). I would love to see another action added: “bulk quick edit”: this would open the quick editor for all entries at once. The user could inspect a first level of content and settings, and even cut and paste across entries. Or is there a technical limitation to how many quick edit entries can be open on one page?

    Brilliant work so far!

    This is just what I’m looking for! A subdomain of mine is supposed to be a private family site, wich I would like no one to look into if not logged in!

    Anyone heard of some change on this matter?

    And of course there’s a plugin for everything! 😉 A bit more searching and wordpress.org came up with this:

    Me like! 🙂

    Coming in late, but apparently WordPress.com users still have that option to make their blogs exclusive to X number of people they choose. 😛

    Why don’t WordPress.org users have the same option bundled with our WordPress platforms?

    I understand that there are plugins that can help handle the job and probably do a BETTER job, but having that functionality sure would be awesome as a quick way to keep some people in and the rest of the crowds out while theme development or the like is still under process.
