Excluding protected posts

A site I’m working with has a handful of “protected” posts (password required to view). For various reasons, we don’t want to show these in search results.

Disabling title or content indexing

If you want to prevent the indexing titles or post content for some reason, Relevanssi has couple of useful filters for that. The filters are called relevanssi_index_content and relevanssi_index_titles. These are simple true/false filters, so if you want to activate the filter, add a function that returns false, like this: add_filter( ‘relevanssi_index_content’, ‘__return_false’ ); That’s all. Replace…
