Exclude indexing

To exclude a certain post or page from being indexed, you can simply insert indexing: false setting at the top of its front-matter, e.g.:

title: "Code Highlight"
date: "2014-03-15 20:17:16"
tags: highlight
categories: Demo
description: "A collection of Hello World applications from helloworld.org."
toc: true
indexing: false
---

Then the generated result will not contain this post or page.

How to use this plugin in my Hexo blog?

You have two choices:

  • you don't want to write search engine by yourself. There are many themes that take use this plugin for local searching that works out of box.
  • you are familiar with Ajax and jQuery and would like to write your own search engine. You can implement one by yourself according to the example theme I give. Read the source code of this theme. Generally there are 3 steps:
    1. write a search view. This is the place for displaying a search form and search results ;
    2. write a search script. This script tells the browser how to grab search data and filter out contents what we're searching;
    3. tell hexo to connect the above two part.
