"Visibility" should utilise post type features
|Reported by:||johnbillion||Owned by:|
The "Visibility" selector on the post editing screen isn't always desirable for custom post types. In fact, it doesn't make a lot of sense at all for non-public post types.
'Password protected' and 'Private' should both be two separate post type features (both enabled by default) that can be disabled. If neither are supported by the post type, the Visibility section in the post publish meta box will not be shown at all.
The corresponding fields on the Quick Edit screen will also be affected by support for these features.
Patch in progress.
