    How do I set a page to noindex without writing code since 12.2.? It seems a straightforward user need to be able to do that, and it used to be no issue, yet I find myself deprived of the capability?

    Here’s an example:

    A. Page that was set to noindex BEFORE 12.2:
    Meta robots output: noindex, follow

    B. Page I just created using the options currently available:
    Option Allow search engines to show this Page in search results?: No
    Option Should search engines follow links on this Page?: No
    Meta robots ouput: max-snippet:-1, max-image-preview:large, max-video-preview:-1

    You state here that “max-snippet:-1, max-image-preview:large, max-video-preview:-1 still permits Google to index the page and follow the links on it”, but that is the exact thing I’m trying to avoid with both of those options set to No?!

    What am I missing?? 🤯
