I’ve got a few questions regarding sorting with Algolia. I am currently using the JS API client and the JS Search Helper library.
I can get sorting to work by using helper.setIndex(‘name_of_index’).search(). However, any selected facets or refinements are cleared. Anyway to prevent this from happening?
Are you able to sort by non-numerical data (ie. Sort by Name)? Most of the examples I’ve seen have been numeric sorting (by price/date) with replica indexes.
