Shopify Facet Sorting

Hello!

We have recently implemented Algolia for shopify, pretty much out of the box.

One issue we are facing is the sorting of certain facets.

An example of this would be ‘Shoe Size’ of which we have the following value examples:

EU 42
EU 43
EU 44
UK 10
UK 11
UK 7
UK 9
UK 9.5

Above these are sorted in order name:asc

We would like to be able to sort some of these values manually. Ideally we would sort the UK values first:

UK 7
UK 9
UK 9.5
UK 10
UK 11

We have tried doing this in the app (Facet Display) but apparently shopify out of the box does not use instantsearch.js.

How can be best achieve this manual sort? Any advice welcomed or if someone would like to do this for us at a charge, we would be happy to pay.

Many thanks

Max

@Andrew33 is this something you would be able to help with?

Hi Max,

To set up this custom sorting, you have to modify your facet display in your algolia_facets.js.liquid file following this Customizing InstantSearch - Sorting Facet Values documentation.

If needed, I can do it for you.
