okay, cool. I wanted to clarify why you wanted this so I could give you the best response . Hide from search engines is simply inserting <meta name="robots" content="noindex">
in the head section of the cms collection page. Other than that, you can also exclude the page from website search results in the page settings.
This way no-one would stumble upon these pages and no design is needed
Plus one on this. It would be nice to store content in a collection but not have pages for each item.
For example, when writing content for a public page, I frequently use a database to lookup common blurbs and links about equipment. I don’t need a page for each equipment item; I just need to store information that I frequently reference for public content. That way, when I update the item in the database, every reference to that item will also update.
Hello! Is it possible to do this for particular items in the collection? In some cases we are using collection items for one purpose (filtering) but do not want individual pages for them but in other cases some of the items in the collection we do want pages for. I assume using the would apply to whole collection. Any modification to that that would let us apply this to certain items?
There is an easy fix without custom code. That is by creating a symbol of all the sections of the 404 page. Use this symbol or these symbols, if you have multiple sections, to fill the collection template page. When someone has figured out the name of the collection and stubles on one of these “empty” template pages, it will at least look like the 404 page.
When creating symbols is gonna be difficult because of multiple sections. Just copy the sections you want from the 404 page to place them into another project. Copy the sections from the other project back into the collection page you want to fill.
