This integration is useless without retrieving the queryID for the search.

Hi @robertsonchris019 , thanks for your message,

For the Algolia plugin successful setup and usage, we’ve made corresponding supporting documentation, available on:

Is it possible to setup query parameter with your Algolia pluggin @ZeroqodeSupport ?

Like this one : optionalWords | API parameters | API Reference | Algolia Documentation


Hi @evodev, thank you for your message.
Please accept my apologies for the late reply. :pray:

You can add a query within the plugin’s input.

In case you would like to know more about the plugin, please make sure to check its documentation, there you can find detailed information about field Query. In this way you can add the request within Query input -

Let me know if you sorted it out. :slightly_smiling_face:

Hello @ZeroqodeSupport,

No problem thanks for the answer !

Query yes but is it possible to setup Query strategy ?
Like “optionalWords” ?

To explain the use case :
It’s like a search on Upwork
The user selects some keywords like (accounting and finance).
And a list of experts with these skills will be displayed.

But we need to display also people with only one of the 2 skills.
For that we need the “Optional Words” configuration.

Hey @evodev, thank you for your patience.

I have checked with our Developers team regarding your query for displaying multiple search results. I regret to tell you this, it seems like the plugin Algolia does not have an option to operate with two keywords at the same time, therefore the results of the search only display the outcome for the first word.

Let me know if there is something else we can help you with.

Hello @ZeroqodeSupport,
Thanks for your answer.

Ok. I found a workaround that is definitely not ideal but works.
I will create a new post to share it, in case someone else needs to perform this kind of “Upwork” search.

If you launch a new version of your plugin and allow to add Query strategy it will be nice !

Hi @evodev,

Happy you found a workaround for your case! Thanks for sharing it with others, it will definitely be a useful asset. :relaxed:
I will let know our Developers team about your request for a Query strategy implemented with the plugin functionality.

Is it possible to set up filters and facets like the image below?

(This question is regarding the Algolia Search Integration - not 3rd party plugins)

Hi @brad.h, thanks for your question.

Our developer team is now considering the feasibility of adding the faceted search feature, as well as adding an Algolia facet search example to the demo.
Kindly note that it might take some time, as it is a quite complex feature.
In case any update will come to live, we will let you know :slightly_smiling_face:

Hello, @brad.h
Thanks for your patience.

By this message, I would like to notify you that we have significantly upgraded the Algolia 2.0 - Simple search plugin and added a lot of features, including the Faceted Search. Additionally, now are possible these features:

  • “Algolia is loading” action;
  • Get All Date;
  • Set setting;
  • Add new Item;
  • Improved search;

Please upgrade the plugin to the latest version and give it a try. Hope these features will be helpful for you :slightly_smiling_face: :tada:

Best regards,

Hi @evodev
I would like to set up a similar kind of “upwork” search, with OR result and not AND result (possible inside algolia with “optional words”).
You said you found a workaround. Could you share it ?
Thanks a lot!

Hi Etienne,

Sorry for my late reply, I will edit this post Tomorrow to show you how I did it.
