On our Shopify collection pages, we have added questions to the top of the page to help the user to select the correct filter.
Here the user is asked to select the type of Shock Mount that their bike has. The user will select one of the options and the Shock Mounting Type filter will be set in the Algolia Widget.
We have developed a new Shopify Snippet called “Guided Nav.liquid” that displays the questions. The snippet is rendered in the Shopify Section “main-collection-banner.liquid”.
window.algoliaShopify.instantsearch.search.helper .clearRefinements(pill.dataset.facet) .addFacetRefinement(pill.dataset.facet, pill.dataset.facetoption) .search();
The AlgoliaSearchHelper article https://community.algolia.com/algoliasearch-helper-js/reference.html references a number of events that are fired in the search cycle.
