    We have a three-step form to collect data (Fast Secure Contact Form & Contact Form to Database).  Meaning, there are three pages, each with a different shortcode: page1/[form1]; page2/[form2]; page3/[form3].  The process must start with page1 and is not complete until page3 confirmation is displayed.

    Only page1 should be returned on website search results — and hopefully also for google as well.  Also have other situations where only the lead page should be returned in search results.

    Is there a way to hide public pages with Weaver Xtreme & Plus? 

    Thank you!

    This has nothing to do with the theme.

    To hide from the WordPress search, you will most likely need a plugin like this
    https://wordpress.org/plugins/search-exclude/
    Or use a plugin that provides different search engine for the site like https://wordpress.org/plugins/search-everything/ which has the option to exclude pages

    To hide from Google, you need to do bit of search  on Google … Normally there is a file robot.txt where you can mark pages to exclude. An SEO plugin may also provide an easier way to do that.
