Thank you for your reply.
And that seems rather accurate actually.
An additional issue we have, and this is where the Shopify tag comes into play so this may not be your specific area of expertise, is that we use Slate for handling our theme. Therefore, every time I tell my IDE to run Slate for the day, the Algolia files that are injected by the Shopify app are lost. Is there a place I can get a Slate version of those files? I can go into Shopify’s HTML editor and copy them out, but I can’t be 100% sure where they go in the Slate hierarchy.
Essentially, is there someone versed enough in this topic to help guide me here?
Luckily I was able to rather easily override that one CSS issue above, so we can get an initial Algolia implementation into the site.
