Main Features

XT Search for Algolia has mainly three features to implement Algolia Search.

1. XT Autocompletion module

This is the primary module that renders a simple search box. This module displays search results “as you type” in an autocomplete menu using Algolia’s search engine.

2. XT Instant Search module

This module allows creating an instant search results page where the whole page (results, filters, facets and pagination) is updated as you type, to provide end-users with a lightning-fast search experience.

3. XT Browse by Facet module

The module shows a cloud of tags to offer shortcuts to the advanced search. The module can be positioned in other pages of the site as a way to lead the user to the advanced search.

3. XT Indexer

The indexer process is the heart of the extension. It crawls the site and processes the information to submit it to Algolia’s search engine. At this time, it has connectors to Joomla Articles, K2 and SobiPro. The indexer process can be executed from the backend, externally via an URL or from the server command line (CLI).

4. Advanced Customization

Once you become familiar with Algolia, XT Search and the associated modules, there is more one level of customization that can be achieved to configure the User Interface Widgets.

  • Extra Facets
  • Custom sortBy
  • Custom transformData
  • Custom templatesItem
