Introduction

Product Filter & Search app provides the best search and navigation, including three features: Filter functions, Instant Search and Suggestion, and Full Search Result.

Initial Step

This step guides you on how to install the app and what happens during installation.

1
In the first step of the installation, log in to your Shopify account and access https://apps.shopify.com/ or access  Apps section from your admin page and click on Install app button.

After that, our app will run two processes:
  • Index data: 

    The app will fetch your Shopify data by synchronizing the product's and the collection's data 

    Product Filter and Search app will sync with Shopify data and use it to set conditions for creating filter options. The filter option is created based on product attributes (Product Options/Variants - Size, Color, etc, Tags, Vendor, etc.) so please make sure these attributes are available in your store.
  • Auto-Setup process: 

    The app will automatically duplicate your live theme and rename the new theme as [Boost] Live theme with filter & search 1. You can test our features on this theme without affecting your live theme.
    • If your theme is on our supported theme list, we will keep the layout of your current theme. We use Javascript to clone the logic of displaying the product list from Liquid.
    • Otherwise, we will set up our Default layout (view demo) for your store.
  • App Onboarding

You now can preview this duplicated theme with our app by clicking the  Preview the filter button
