The Visibility area of the Publish module is used to set who can read the post.
- Public – The post will be visible to everyone.
- Protected – The post is protected with a password you set. Any user that has the password can view a protected post.
- Private – Posts are only visible to Story Editors and Administrators. Private posts are not visible in the Reader, feeds, or in any search. A post can be private without being password protected.
