1.2.- Feed Settings: Allows you to configure options such as image size, export or not prices or group or ungroup the configurable products.

1.3.- Schedule Settings: Here you can program the generation of the data feed through the Magento CRON to finally process a file in Doofinder, optimizing the process in this way.

1.4.- Feed Status: URLs of the last feed generated

2.- Search Configuration: You must configure the Doofinder search in Default Config as well as in the corresponding store (s) view (s):

2.1.- Default Config:

2.1.1.- Doofinder Layer: Allows you to enable or disable the layer on your website. You can define this option individually in each store view.

2.1.2.- Internal Search: Enabling this option, you are configuring Doofinder as the only search engine in your store, replacing the Magento native. To do this, you must configure it as follows:

– Enabled: “yes”.

– API Key: You can find it in your control panel, by clicking on your access email.

– Total Limit: Maximum result that each call to the API returns. It is recommended not to change the default value.

2.2.- Store View:

2.2.1.- Doofinder Layer: Allows you to enable or disable the layer in this Store View. In addition, you can paste the corresponding script that you have configured in the Doofinder control panel (Configure Doofinder Layer).

2.2.2.- Internal Search:

– Enabled: “yes”.

– HashId: It is the unique identifier of each of your search engines. You can find it in your control panel, in the search engines list. OJO !, do not confuse with the Key API.

– Total Limit: Maximum result that each call to the API returns. It is recommended not to change the default value.

In this way, you will have installed and configured the Doofinder extension for Magento, having enabled the layer and the internal search.
