Quick Start on WooCommerce

1. Installation

See the instructions on how to install the plugin here.

After the app is installed, the indexation starts to import search data into it. It takes some time. You can see the progress of the indexation in the Dashboard section of the Searchanise control panel. The Searchanise control panel is located in the WordPress admin panel > Products > Searchanise

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 display or hide in the widget and change its default content. It is possible to hide the sections in the widget: pages, categories, 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 fine-tune the content here.

3.2. Adjusting the look and feel

You can choose either a single-column or multi-column widget’s template in the Searchanise control panel > 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 adjust what data to display or hide in the Search Results Widget. See the instructions on how to do so here.

4.2. Adjusting the look and feel

By default, the up-to-date template is set up. We recommend you use it, changing only its colors to suit your store style guide. See the instructions on how to change colors here.

5. Adjusting the search relevance

You are able to fine-tune your search results and make them more relevant.

It is possible to adjust showing out-of-stock products at the end of the search results or enable SKU substring search. 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 and global product attributes. 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 use Recommendations widgets or merchandising rules to promote products in search results.
