Can Locksmith hide content from my in-store search?
How to adjust your lock settings to prevent your content from being found via your in-store search
Locksmith includes a checkbox inside of the "Settings" area, on lock pages, that will remove products and other resources from searches - but only from the default and static searches in your store.
You'll find the hide-from-search setting on each of your lock pages, like so:
Using the above Locksmith setting to 'hide from search results' will not remove the search results when a third party or dynamic search is enabled in your store, so we have some suggestions for alternatives.
The only option here, if you want to make sure that your locked content is never displayed inside of your in-store search, is to disable the dynamic loading of the products. Each theme is different, but this is typically done within the "search" settings for the theme.
Once you open the Theme Editor, you can find it under your "Search" settings. On the Debut theme, for example, go to:
- Theme Settings > Search > Enable product suggestions (turn OFF)
Locksmith won’t be able to hide your products from a search in this case, since the third party app is completely responsible for displaying search results when enabled. Suggestions:
- Many third party apps have their own ways to prevent products from showing up in them. Check the settings for the app that you're using! At the very least, they should allow you to remove certain products entirely from appearing in searches, using a specific product tag.
