Changed: Parent-child page exclusion

The old parent-child exclusion option was removed and replaced by a better one, which also allows excluding posts/pages/cpt.
In case you were using it, please re-configure using the new option (Advanced Options -> Exclude results panel):


Post type limit distribution

In case of searching multiple post types (ex. posts, pages, products) the post type limit can be distributed evenly per post type.

The option can be enabled on the General Options -> Limits panel:
