Private module settings

Private is a very simple node access module that gives each node a 'private' checkbox. If it's set, the node can only be seen by the node author, or users with the 'access private content' permission. The module is particularly recommended for simpler sites, for example to create a members-only area.

The module includes per-content type defaults, actions integration and views integration.

D8 Installation in instructions

In D8 the module was renamed from private to private_content. This was necessary because private is a reserved word in PHP so cannot be used as a name. Hence drush installation instructions are as follows:

d dl private
d en private_content
