I've set up the search form on a website, but i've noticed the search finds files that are in the assets folder. I don't really the search to look through these - just the content pages.

Is there a way to do this?

In your _config.php you should have something along the lines of FulltextSearchable::enable() to turn on searching, you can pass an array without 'File' to exclude assets.

If you're using the default searchform, you should also be able to do something like this:

$form = new SearchForm($this, "SearchForm", $fields, $actions);

(only classes you can enter are SiteTree and File...)
