#10769 closed enhancement (wontfix)

Add option to set role for reading private posts and pages

I recently set up some private pages and was flabbergasted to discover that, in order for my logged-in subscribers to be able to read the pages, I'd have to promote them all to editors. I quickly found out how to change that capability by adding a few lines to my functions.php file, but private posts/pages would be more useful if administrators could check a box for this setting rather than mucking with the capabilities by hand.

In short, there ought to be an option under Reading: minimum role for accessing private content.

(Related to this: once users are logged in and are allowed to read private pages, they should be able to see those pages in page lists -- #6939.)
