In the Media -page on the WordPress admin, one can attach unattached media to posts and pages.

However, the search does not show private posts, even with the master account.


  1. Upload media
  2. Try to attach to a private post or page

This has been fixed sometime in the last couple of years. You can now attach unattached media to any post status.
