After upgrade from 1.6.0 (magento 1) to latest 1.14 getting error: Please provide an API key. Usage: algoliasearch(applicationID, apiKey, opts)

As subject says, after upgrade of Algolia module, magento 1 ( I get this error on every page load to console.


Tracing the code in chrome dev tools, I can clearly see the key IS defined…and also search works in frontend

Any ideas?


Complete uninstall of all algolia module. Removed any ref to algolia in any file
re-install from scratch, re-apply custom theme changes.

I suspect old 1.6 file in theme was issue.
