Does the search extension have the ability to exclude pages from its
results?

I have some pages on my site (e.g. stylesheet, etc) that I do not what
to show up in my search results. Is there any way to exclude them?

I have seen other extension use a “no-xxxx” page part to exclude pages
and was hoping that they search extension had one as well. I didn’t
see thing like that in the extension code, but wanted to check with
the list. I think it would make a nice feature for that extension.

It currently doesn’t, but it shouldn’t be too hard to add. At Digital
Pulp they developed a search extension based on Ferret. I’m currently
using Sphinx on another project. Either would be great alternatives to
the brute-force “LIKE” query that the current search extension uses, and
it would be trivial to exclude certain pages from the search.

I am also interested in this. Sphinx sounds great! Is the extension
you’re using on your project something you’d consider releasing, Sean?

Sorry, but the current project I’m on is not a Radiant project.
However, I can highly recommend the Thinking Sphinx plugin for anyone
who’s brave enough to try out Sphinx. It has the most friendly API in
my opinion.
