Index on Algolia


Allow to index posts into Algolia indices

You will access two pages :
– Settings : need to fill all informations needed for Algolia to work (Application ID, Search API Key, …)
– Indices : you can choose post types you want to index

For each indice, you can :
– Index whole posts existing (useful when enable new post type or to fix some previous missing posts)
– Backup settings in JSON file in order to sync between multiple environments
– Push settings from JSON into Algolia

These action can be done from administration or with WP CLI (see wp index-algolia command)

All post created, updated or deleted will be automatically synchronized with Algolia.

By default, plugin while index data existing in WP_Post entity.
In order to control which data you would index, you can use index_algolia_post_to_record filter which give you post object and waiting an array in return.
If you use filter, your return array SHOULD at least have objectID value.

Exemple :
‘post_title’ => $post->post_title,
‘post_date’ => get_post_time( ‘U’, false, $post ),
‘link’ => get_the_permalink($post),

return $record;
