Is there a way to get rid of the ancestorIds in Confluence search?

I get ancestorIds in my search results. Is there a way to avoid that, please? User compain that it is confusing.

I would assume this is happening because you have the documentation theme activated and users are searching via the search bar in the left side of the screen which limits the search to the current space. That is why the ancestorIds search term appears: it's limiting the search to all descendants of the space homepage. The best option is to remove the search bar from the left sidebar or to switch to the default theme (depending on which version of Confluence you are running).

We are using Confluence 6.0.7 and the default theme.

Yes, it happend with the search bar on the left sidebar.

We need to have space-vise search enabled for users so any fix to get this ID removed will be great.
