I’ve got an index of over 7000 items that Algolia ranks based on a given field. I’d like to display a ranking number per item, but not have that number change based on the search. (i.e. the 50th item in the index will always show “50” even if it displays as the first result in search). Any ideas how to do that?
I know I could upload the ranking number as a field and use that, but I don’t want to add that extra overhead, since Algolia is already ranking them correctly. (Not to mention that it requires extra updating).
Two other things I can break out into a separate message if preferred:
- Is there a way to expose a different method of ranking to the user? (i.e. using a different field for ranking, and, as per above, use a new set of display numbers)
- I’m also hoping to limit the total displayed results for this index to only 100 (out of 7000). Is there a way to set that without deleting a bunch of the index?
