I experience two problems with the beta of Algolia Search for WooCommerce Plugin (0.4.0).
(WordPress 4.7, Search by Algolia – Instant & Relevant results 1.6.0)
When the Algolia Search for WooCommerce Plugin is activated, it won’t index new products [posts_product] anymore. It does index [searchable_posts], but at the same time products are stuck as pending tasks. When I deactivate Algolia Search for WooCommerce and use Search by Algolia – Instant & Relevant results only, it is working fine again.
I have two products on my test page. When I use Instantsearch.js it displays those two products on search and the facets. But when I use the option to override the default WooCommerce search page with an instant search experience powered by Algolia, than only a search form is displayed in the #content section, but no results or facets. In the firebug console it displays following error:
AlgoliaSearchError: Index wp2_posts_product_menu_order_asc does not exist
