WordPress Private Post Snag

Just hit a snag with private posts - any tags or categories unique to private posts will not show up in the tag cloud or category list widgets even when signed in as the administrator. Further reading suggests private posts will not come up in search results either. This defeats the purpose of using WordPress as a Personal Knowledge Management tool unless I make the whole blog private and make all posts public, i.e. replicating the limited functionality of Blogspot which lead me to WordPress in the first place :(


  1. I had the same problem and ended up using the Private Tags plugin. So you publish your post as public but add a tag that says "private".
