Well, here's an awkward "undocumented feature" I'm hoping the Marketpress developers can add to the To Do list...
Searching for keywords on a site with Marketpress installed will reveal any coupon codes that include those words.
Is there any way to disable indexing of custom "mp_coupon" post types so they are not found via the native WordPress blog search?
NOTE: I've confirmed that the Global Site Search plugin does not find these coupon codes, since we can select to index only default "post" types.
Searching the specific blog, however - in our case http://downloads.tripawds.com - reveals any coupon code including the search term(s). Clicking the actual post link reveals no data, but the URL does include /?post_type=mp_coupon&p=x
Anyone savvy enough to recognize the results as a coupon code could apply them!
Please advise if there is anything I can do to address this issue . Otherwise, please consider this a feature request to disable indexing of coupons in Marketpress, and presumably Pro Sites, Membership or any other plugins that offer coupon codes.
I do understand this may be tricky, since not indexing all MP custom post types would eliminate products from search results too. That's why I'm leaving up to you experts.
Thanks in advance for any feedback! Any questions?
