LH Restricted Post Status

Restrict access to posts, pages, and cpts by user role

This plugin creates an additional post status 'restricted'. This status functions similarly to setting a post, page, or cpt to private. However with this plugin you can specify which roles have access to restricted posts

This is required because natively WordPress follows a publishing/editorial paradigm and therefore the 'read_private_posts' capability is only granted to admins and editors.
