I would like to like to exclude irrelevant pages from the index by ID. I checked the documentation, but it seems quite outdated and the instructions there do not cover (4.17.2) my version anymore. Furthermore: Does your pro version honour the default wordpress “exclude from search” functionality?January 15, 2020 at 10:29 am #25291
This documentation should be up to date: https://documentation.ajaxsearchpro.com/advanced-options/excluding-and-including-results/exclude-by-item-or-id
If you scroll down on that page, you should see an exclusion box by ID, as well as a search drag/drop field for easier exclusion.
Unfortunately there is no “exclude from search” functionality in core wordpress, that is only possible via 3rd party plugins or via custom code, or some themes may also offer an option for that. There are so many different solutions, that we would not be able to reliably support them.Best,

Thanks for your response Ernest,
A different question popped up now while trying to exclude some pages.
I excluded search results by ID, but for some reason I still see them in my search results page (not in the dropdown). I also tried using the “drag and drop” feature, not working either. The results I do not want in my search are just pages, so no custom taxonomies or anything special.
Example: Post: 10321 -> Postname: Test JS CTA Buttons -> Shows on resultpage (not in result dropdown) when query ” inloggen” is entered in searchfield.
Any advice on what could cause the issue?January 16, 2020 at 2:37 pm #25308January 16, 2020 at 3:38 pm #25311
Thanks again Ernest,
You’re the greatest!January 16, 2020 at 3:49 pm #25312
