comment Prevent private post 404
I don't have any plugins installed, this is default functionality. I just want to disable this default functionality so private posts (for those who aren't logged in) shows the single.php template.

Yeah this was a concern I was trying to sidestep from the beginning, however it still appears to save and output the content... not sure what else it could cause problems with.

so this would work perfectly is I were using my own custom meta boxes, however I'm using Advanced Custom Fields, of which doesn't have an option to put the editor box elsewhere. I'm about to post my own answer to this question, your answer helped me get there :-)

comment Creating 'posts page' loop based on the page itself
I worded that badly, as my 'News' page is the 'Posts page', the loop it initially populate to display a range of posts, I need to be create a new loop just for the page, thus overwriting the global $post object. So functions like the_title() will work without having to pass an ID.

comment Creating 'posts page' loop based on the page itself
Thanks Mike, I've got the first two parts, I really need it to overwrite the loop. I tried using setup_postdata but that fails too... looks like WP doesn't want me to do this ;-)
