Private by Default

Description

When creating new posts or pages (of regular WordPress types or custom post types), this plugin makes them private by default.

Just activate the plugin, no further configuration is necessary (or even possible).

This plugin is a fork of the Private Posts by Default plugin since it didn’t work properly in WordPress 4.3 and wasn’t updated in more than three years.

FAQ

Does it have a configuration menu?

No, it’s not necessary since there is nothing to configure. The plugin works it’s magic right after it’s activated.

I went looking for a plugin that would allow me to post my private blog posts without fear of accidentally leaving anything out for public consumption. I'm very appreciative that I found it, and it works the way I wanted it to.
