Log in to your store's admin backend and navigate to the Searchanise control panel:
- Shopify: Apps → Smart Search & Instant Search
- Magento: Catalog → Searchanise
- Merchium or CS-Cart: Add-ons → Searchanise
Next, go to the Preferences → CATEGORIES, and click CHANGE STATUSES
Change the status of any category from Active to Hidden, and save changes.
The re-indexation will start automatically, and Searchanise won’t work on your storefront until the indexation is completed. Please, track its status in the Dashboard.
After the indexation is complete, the selected categories won’t be shown in the search.
