How to change the visibility of Posts, Pages and other Post Types in WordPress

To change the visibility of Posts, Pages and most Custom Post Types (i.e. MTheater Resume) in WordPress, click the ‘Edit’ link next to ‘Visibility’ under the Publish section of your Edit window.

These are the visibility options:

  • Public – Visible to anyone viewing the Post, Page or Custom Post Type’s content
  • Password Protected – Add a password so content can only be viewed by those you share password with
  • Private – Choose ‘private’ if you only want content viewable to users logged in to your website

See visual example below (Screenshots from Version 3.5).
