How to Create a Private Post in WordPress

About Private Post

Private posts are a kind of locked post which can see or edit only by the authorized person or logged in user. It will restrict other to see the post content. Any user who has the permission to publish a post can make their post private and publish them.

The post will be visible to following users –

  • Administrator – An Administrator can create, edit, and delete any private post created by any user on a WP site.
  • Editor – Can create, edit, and delete any private posts created by any user regardless you made those posts.
  • Author – Can create, publish, edit, view and delete their private posts. But they cannot see or edit private posts created by other users.
