Are your search results cluttered with file attachments you'd rather hide? No worries. With a few simple steps you can make sure your customers only see what matters.
 

How to hide files from search


  1. On the MindTouch toolbar, select Site tools > Control panel.
  2. Click Custom Site CSS
  3. In the All Roles CSS field enter the following code:

/* Hide file attachments from search results */

#mt-search-results li.type-file{
    display:none;
    }

 If you want your content managers and administrators to find file attachments through search, add the code to the Anonymous CSS and Community Member CSS fields only.

Include a comment such as /* Hide file attachments from search results */ in the above example to remind yourself and other coders what the snippet of code accomplishes.

Depending on how many file attachments are hidden from results, you may notice a double white or double gray row, instead of the alternating white and gray pattern .
