Custom Search will automatically display thumbnail images (where available) in search results. You can disable automatic thumbnails at any time, or you can specify the thumbnails you want displayed in search results. Disabling automatic thumbnails doesn't disable any thumbnails you've specified.

The Custom Search code snippet has been updated! To make sure your changes automatically appear on your site, get the new code now or click Save and Get Code when you update the look and feel of your search engine, then copy that code into your website where you want your search engine to appear.

Disable automatic thumbnails:

  1. On the Custom Search home page, click the search engine you want.
  2. Click Look and feel, and then click the Thumbnails tab.
  3. Switch Thumbnails in search results to OFF.

(Advanced) In some cases, you might want to disable thumbnails only for a specific webpage. To do this, add an empty thumbnail DataObject to a PageMap to the page, like this:

    <DataObject type="thumbnail" />

Automatic thumbnails will continue to appear for other pages, but will not appear for pages with PageMaps containing this empty thumbnail DataObject.
