As the title, I would like to exclude a system attribute (SKU, Description..) from a search. I've tried setting to 'NO' the 'Use in Quick Search' and the 'Use in Advanced Search' fields in the 'Frontend Properties' but it seems it doesn't work.

Any suggestions?

  • Did you reindex after changing the the attributes settings?

Go to Catelog->Attributes->manage Attribute and click on attribute which you want to edit

Now you can see to types of setting for attributes Back-End and front End.

In front end section you got options for Use in Quick Search, Use in Advanced Search etc.

You can configure your product attribute as you wanted:)
