Description (last modified by Denis-de-Bernardy)
Also, a lot of the complexity of private posts could be avoided by a relatively simple change: saying they're only viewable in the dashboard. (Which I think is close to how people use them already.)
There are quite a few tickets related to private posts that can be viewed by users who should, and even more tickets related to private comments that can be viewed by users who aren't authorized to view the post.
There also is at least one ticket that highlights a performance issue related to private posts.
Would it be an option to turn this into a canonical plugin and begone with the problems?
