How to grant access to Collection Item Options for non-Admins

  • Looks like it can't be done at the collection item level.

    I use perch_collection() on the search page to query collection items, it's more powerful and flexible. And I leave perch_content_search() for non-collection general site search. Both a processed at once, pre-processed then echoed the usual way: "echo $col_item['html'];" and "echo $search_general;" .

    Then you could add a checkbox to the collection item template "exclude from search" and modify your search page to filter this in the collection query.
