This is super helpful - can you also exclude entire chapters / manuals from search? Thanks!

Trevor DeVore

@Alex There is not away to exclude entire chapters or manuals. Just individual articles.

Do I need to "exculde from search" a lesson that is unpublished/ in progress? Or is an unpublished article excluded from searches by default?

Trevor DeVore

@Melissa - An unpublished article will not show up in searches.
