    How do we prevent Sitefinity 5's built-in front-end search function from displaying unpublished pages in its results?

    I'm experiencing this as well, is there any way to suppress unpublished pages from the search results?

    I've also unchecked 'Allow search engines to index this page' for these pages, rebuilt the search index, and they still come up in the site search results. Is there anyway to keep the page but remove it from the search results?

    @Mark 
    The allow search engines to index concernes external pages only.

    I once suggested a second checkbox to have the internal seach engin skip indexing as well. I guess it naver made it.

    Was this issue resolved? Our site is also displaying search results of unpublished pages. Is there a way to prevent this from happening?

    Hi,

    The issue is fixed in Sitefinity 5.4, so I would advise to upgrade your project in order to overcome it.

    Sumaira,

    After the upgrade, did you make sure to re-index the search?

    Hi Sumaira,

    Have you tried to recreate the search index? If not, delete the broken one and then try to make a new one identical to the previous. You can also try to go to App_Data->Sitefinity->Search folder and find the folder named as the broken index, then delete its contents. After that go to the backend of the project and re-index.

    If the problem persist I would advise to submit a support ticket and send us your project.

    Thanks for posting this. I had to manually remove the old search index and re-create it after the upgrade to get the archived pages to stop showing up in search results.
