    It has been discovered  on our Sitefinity 3.7 SP4 site, that a page we’ve been holding pending approvals, and have not been published, show up in the site search.
    There’s a radio-select option in Sitefinity that we thought kept a page from being indexed, but it appears the radio-select option is not working.

    What do I need to check, to ensure pages not published, do not appear in site search results?

    Hi Lurch,

    Could you perform a few quick tests, in order to determine why this strange behavior occurs? Please try to create a new page, approve it, publish it and apply a few changes to it afterwards. Then disable Index this page option and send it for approval. Try to search for it. The page should still be visible, simply because changes are applied after publishing. That's when the page gets reindexed. Approve and publish the page. Now if you search for it,  It shouldn't be found. Le me know what happens when you perform these tests.
