#43924 closed feature request (maybelater)

Add ability to add page for "Logged In User"

It's too hard to keep exclude logged in pages from a main query like Search. All we can do is hard code a page name, and if we have many pages which required logged in to see, to keep them hidden from search results it must do it manually.

My suggestion:

  1. Add a visibility status for "Logged-in User".
  2. Keep to exclude their pages from default public search, and visible them only for logged users.

  • Keywords ui-feedback removed

We discussed this ticket today during the Design team triage meeting (https://wordpress.slack.com/archives/C02S78ZAL/p1584989720143300). We agreed to remove the "ui-feedback" keyword since this ticket does not feel like it needs design or design feedback.

Please feel free to add it again and provide more info if you think otherwise.

Hi @khoipro, I am assuming that you were able to find a different solution for this. If I understand your request correctly, you are looking for a way to limit the ability to view certain pages to only logged in users. I think there are several plugins out there that accomplish this very well, and I'm not sure there is a current need for this in Core.

Leaving the maybelater resolution so this can be reopened if that changes!

Sorry for late response. Actually there is no plugin support for a simple query such like that.

So recently I must to check is_user_logged_in() everywhere to get post for logged-in user or guest.

Should we improve it @desrosj?
