I am using Vue JS and the associated Vue JS Algolia components shown here:
I have my search system set up with:
- Keyword search
- Refinements list
- Toggle refinement
On first load of my application, all toggles are set off and so my item (I only have one right now) does not display until I select a toggle that matches one of its facets, first (a boolean for “bills included”).
What I would ideally like is that on the first load of the app, that Algolia retrieves all of my items without any search provided criteria but sorted by newest first.
The reason I want this is so that the user can drill down as they like only after being presented with everything available.
At the moment it seems like a search is applied immediately on load.
Is there a way to configure this behaviour at all?
The issue mainly appears to be with the “toggle refinement” components. I guess that makes sense because they are either on or off. If that has to be the case, is there another way I can only apply these after a search is made first?
Hope that all makes sense. Thank you!
