Excluded pages not found in WordPress page search (3 posts)

    My complaint is that this works a little too well! (Can't win, eh? LOL) I'm using your plugin to hide specific pages from a site search that need to be kept private but accessible through a link. (Advanced > Exclude some post or page IDs) And it works beautifully for that. However, WordPress' own internal search can't find these pages, so it is a little too effective.

    Since I'm working with a very large site (17 screens of page listings), I need to be able to filter the page list to what I'm looking for. The excluded pages do show up if I go through the page listing without using the search filter, but this can be very time consuming.

    Is there a way to make excluded pages visible to the WordPress internal search? If there isn't a way currently, could this be added as a feature in future updates?

    Many thanks!

    Any replies to this? I'm having the same problem and unfortunately it makes your plugin unusable for me. I have over 2000 pages on my site and I need search functionality on the back-end. Your plugin seems to work really well otherwise. Is there a setting that we're missing?

    trailmix5, there is this workaround that I found for another plugin (http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/mpress-hide-from-search/). The workaround is here:


    If you're prepared to change it back every time the plugin updates, it might be a solution for you.
