I know that Algolia doesn’t support english counties / regions but I’m wondering if anyone knows of a work around for this problem.
when I enter West Midlands into the search I get instant results such as “Coventry, West Midlands” and “Wolverhampton, West Midlands” but there is no way for the user to do a search for all west midlands - you have to drill down to town/city level.
So, I can see that Algolia has “west midlands” in its database as it is showing the town/city results that I mention above. Is there an ability to group all those towns/cities that have West Midlands in their description together and create a custom entry in the search index called WEST MIDLANDS that will show a combination of the relevant results?
Essentially what I am asking is can we manually create a Region / County search?
I am a total newbie here and am working on a project incorporating Algolia for the first time so please do excuse my ignorance.
