I'm quite shocked to learn that out of all the Restrict Access plugins for WordPress, there's not one I can find that suits my needs. Basically I have two requirements: Do not display the page in wp_list_pages and Do not display the page in search results.

I tried 7 plugins: Members, Advanced Access Manager, Restrict Content, Page Security, Maven Member, User Access Manager, and WordPress Access Control.

Advanced Access Manager was the only plugin that restricted the page from being displayed on the wp_list_pages. WordPress Access Control is the only plugin that explicitly addressed the search issue.

Am I going to have to use 2 plugins to meet my requirements?

horrible UI, complicated and eats up screenspace...I don't think this will suit my client's needs – AlxVallejo Dec 15 '11 at 15:16
If you cleaner UI then you should buy their premium plugin. Check this site PS:Press Permit is a content permissions plugin for WordPress, from the creator of Role Scoper. – Giri Dec 15 '11 at 15:32

According to this article WordPress Access Control should support suppressing pages from WordPress' Page List as well:

Restricted pages added to the navigation menu will not appear to users without the correct permissions. It fully supports wp_nav_menu, wp_page_menu, and wp_list_pages.

So you should not need two plugins (anymore).
