Quick Start on Wix

1. Installation

See the instructions on how to add the app to your Wix store here.

After the app is installed, you will be redirected to the Wix website editor, where you can set up the Searchanise search bar. In the meanwhile, the indexation starts to import search data. It takes some time.

You can see the progress of the indexation in the Dashboard section of the Searchanise control panel: Wix admin panel > Apps > Searchanise, or alternatively via the Wix editor:

  1. Select the Searchanise search bar.
  2. Click the Settings button.
  3. Select the Main tab.
  4. Click the Manage App button to open a new tab with the Searchanise control panel.

In the Wix website editor, you’ll see our app’s search bar and can change its location you would like.

You also can adjust the search bar in various ways.

While the Main tab allows you to quickly open our apps’ control panel, the Design tab, on the other hand, allows you to control the colors of the search bar, its border radius, and width.

It also allows you to choose a custom font and size for the search bar.

2. Checking if the app is working

Once the indexation is complete, you can check how the app works in your store. See the instructions on how to do so here.

3. Adjusting the Instant Search Widget

3.1. Adjusting the content

You can think up what data to show or hide in the widget and change its default content. It is possible to hide the sections in the widget: pages, products, or suggestions. It is also possible to hide product prices or SKUs and show an additional field like a brand or one of the product attributes in the product cards. See the instructions on how to adjust the widget’s content here.

3.2. Adjusting the look and feel

You can select either a single-column or multi-column widget’s template in the Searchanise control panel > Search & Navigation > Instant search widget section > Colors tab.

You can also change colors for the widget’s template to suit your store look and feel more. See the instructions on how to do so here.

4. Adjusting the Search Results Widget (search results page)

4.1. Adjusting the content

As well as in the Instant Search Widget, you can modify what data to show or hide in the Search Results Widget. See the instructions on how to do so here.

4.2. Adjusting the look and feel

You can change the widget’s default colors to suit your store style guide. See the instructions on how to do so here.

5. Adjusting the search relevance

You can adjust your search results and make them even more relevant.

It is possible to adjust showing out-of-stock products at the end of the search results or enable SKU substring search. The SKU substring search allows you to get products in the search results, SKU of which are partially matching the search term entered into the search bar. You can do so in the Preferences section of the Searchanise control panel.

What is more, you can hide some product details from the search or change their search weight. See the instructions on how to do so here.

6. Managing Filters

The Filters are created automatically based on product details. You can hide part of them, change the sorting, or rename them. See the instructions on how to do so here.

7. Going further

The Instant Search Widget and Search Results Widget supply the main functionality of our app. But you can also try to adjust merchandising rules to promote products in search results.
