Remove the 'Private:' title for private posts


If you are creating private pages or posts for certain members to view, you will notice by default WordPress adds 'Private:' to the title. So the title 'Secret Page/Post' will actually be 'Private: Secret Page/Post'. This is not necessarily what you want the user to see.

So here is the solution:

1. Open the 'functions.php' file that's in your themes folder and add the following code to the end.

function remove_private_prefix($title) {
    $title = str_replace(
    'Private:',
    '',
    $title);
    return $title;
}

add_filter('the_title','remove_private_prefix');

Now the 'Private:' part of the title should no longer appear.

    `/* Removing private prefix from post titles */


    function spi_remove_private_protected_from_titles( $format ) {
    return '%s';
    }
    add_filter( 'private_title_format', 'spi_remove_private_protected_from_titles' );`
