Private Notes

Private Notes Plugin for WordPress

Download this project as a .zip file Download this project as a tar.gz file

Description

Lets the author add private notes to a post that only the author can see. Just use a note code, like this [note] my private note [/note] and then it won't be shown publicly but will be rendered in a div tag with class "private-note" so an admin can style the div.

See the plugin listing on WordPress's Plugin Directory"

Installing

Search from within the WordPress plugin directory for "Private Notes"

Or download the archive private-notes.zip, then either (1) copy to your wp-content/plugins directory or (2) upload via http://[yoursiteurl.com]/wp-admin/plugin-install.php?tab=upload, finally activating the plugin.

How to Use

Once activated in WordPress, simply add the following shortcode in your posts:

[note] This is a personal note that only admins can see! [/note]

If you have publishing rights (aka the blog owner/author), then the note will be displayed in a div with a private-note class, so you can use it to give a specific style to your notes. The text won't show at all for normal visitors.

<div class="private-note"> This is a personal note that only admins can see! </div>

Screenshot

Here's what it looks like viewing a post as an admin.
The privates note box doesn't show at all if you're a visitor.
