[wp-hackers] Add a Filter or use new PRIVATE status (WP2.1)

You've got two options:
1. Change the post_status of the posts in your private category to
"private" and then use the filters to display them only to members with
privileges. This stops most other plugins from displaying your posts.
The biggest drawback is the lack of filters for archive / category / etc
listings which will keep your posts out of that view. For my
I ended up using the query filter, which can be tricky to keep compatible
with the many plugins out there.
2. Do the reverse of #1, and try to make sure that other plugins hide
your special (but public) posts ... this would involve changing the sql
calls through the query filter
Best of luck! Feel free to look at my source ...
