Okay thanks for letting me know.
I posted about this in another form recently, but I had thought that if a product was marked as 'Private' that it was completely hidden from the website... like how a page marked 'private' cannot be accessed. So has the products that are marked 'private' always been this way (visible via only the link)... or is this something recent that has changed?
Does this make sense what I'm asking? I was just under the impression that anything marked 'Private' was completely hidden... and its strange to me that products and pages work differently in this way.
