Synonyms and Autocomplete.js (WordPress)

Heya, another strange unexpected issue popped up. We have specified synonyms for words and these synonyms works fine on search results page. However, these synonyms are not working on the autocomplete fields, is this normal or expected behavior?

To summarize autocomplete fields returns no results, however search result page displayes the synonym results as expected.

Thanks in advance for advising.


Different indices are used to power the autocomplete and the instantsearch experiences.
As a result, you would also need to add the synonyms to the indices powering the autocomplete dropdown experience.

I hope that helps,
