Make calendar view respect privacy settings.

Title
Make calendar view respect privacy settings.

Short, concise description of the idea
Currently, if you post friends-only posts (or other filter), the calendar view displays the total number of entries, including these private entries, even to anonymous users. This should be altered to only include the entries that the person viewing the calendar would be able to read.

An ordered list of benefits

  • Keeps the presence of private entries private.
  • Eliminates confusing behaviour where visitor clicks on a day with 2 entries and only sees 1 title show up.
  • An ordered list of problems/issues involved

  • Requires adding filter/security checks to calendar view, which may cause a greater hit on the server.
  • An organized list, or a few short paragraphs detailing suggestions for implementation

  • Alter the code that generates the calendar view to apply the appropriate filters.
  • Tags: archive/calendar, security, § implemented
