Multisite Privacy Plugin Improvement Suggestion

I have been using the privacy plugin for a while and like it, but we need some more options for individual posts/pages on sites.

I would suggest adding a settings option to "Allow for Individual Post and Pages to select privacy". If this setting is selected by the network admin then site administrators would be see a field below the post/page (or on the sidebar) where they could select the privacy for a certain page.

Would this be something easy I could add?

    Hi jeffvand,

    I don't think that would be easy to add with this plugin given the way it works. Really, some of those settings are possible by various means, like making a post or page Private in the visual editor.

    It's also possible to hide content from non-logged in users by using a plugin like the Membership plugin.

    Or alternatively, hiding posts/pages using is_user_logged_in() in your theme's template files to restrict them on an id basis perhaps.

    It's really the hiding of pages from the search engines while making them available to non-logged in users that I imagine might be a bit tough but that's more of a core concern given that the blog privacy option is part of the core and not specific to this plugin.

    Let me check with a couple of the other guys over here to see if they've got ideas on this one as well.

    Hmmm... okay. Thanks for the tips y'all. Membership seems like overkill for what I need to do, especially since I would like to offer this to each of the 1700+ sites on my network. I'll look into some other options. If anyone else has ideas on how I can easily make this happen that would be great.



Thank NAME, for their help.

Let NAME know exactly why they deserved these points.
