We're working on a plugin where any logged-in user has the ability to submit a new "pitch", or standard post type with custom status of "pitch". Once the pitch is in the system, other logged-in users can vote on the idea, volunteer to participate, or comment on the story in progress.
It was simple to list all unpublished posts on a single view by querying the database for posts with post_status != 'publish'. I'd like to set it up so both logged-in and unlogged-in visitors can click through on the title and view the post on a single view as well. Default WordPress behavior is to return a 404 unless you have sufficient permissions. I believe viewing permissions are handled in the query object, and I don't see a simple way to unset them.
Any creative ideas? Thanks in advance.
