This enhancement is a part of the October 30, 2021 release.
The Hidden page dropdown on all sites has now been updated to allow you to easily hide pages from Site Search and search engines.
The Hide from all site menus option is now Hide from all site menus, search and site map so pages that do not appear in Site Map to be indexed by search engines are also not listed in Site Search results. This is ideal for custom Form Center confirmation pages or any Published page that you do not want most site visitors to find.
The Hide from all site menus but show in sitemap is also now renamed to Hide from all site menus only and pages set to this option will continue to appear in the Site Map to be indexed by Site Search and search engines.
Pages that are already set to Hide from all site menus will only be removed from Site Search after resaving, and all new pages with this option selected will never be listed in Search. Changing this setting will be reflected in search results within 24 hours.
From before Hide from mega menus only:
- “Hidden” is now “Hide from all site menus, search and site map”
- “Hidden” and “Show in Sitemap” is now “Hide from all site menus only”
