We managed to investigate your questions.
Firstly, sorry for demo misleading. We had to change our app keys because they were incorrect. You can test the demo now if you will.
Regarding the manual fields and columns:
There are 2 different ways you can set this plugin element:
- you recreate the Algolia dashboard columns into your Bubble database and set the Data Type as your Bubble database table
- you enter the fields you want to be retrieved by manually typing their name into Manual Fields (make sure match the same name as per your Algolia dashboard).
You can check these instructions here.
Regarding demo and plugin improvements, we’ll add the requested features to our roadmap feature list and depending on traction we’ll decide in upcoming updates, if feasible.
The Algolia Search element does provide the ability to use geo search, but the Algolia Simple Search doesn’t have this functionality, unfortunately.
Regarding state implementations - there should be no issues with it. You can easily integrate the state implementations if you will, and based on that retrieve the results from Algolia.
If you experience some difficulties on this matter, could you please provide access to your app by adding our [email protected] account to your Settings/Collaboration list within Bubble editor (ignore the warning message about plan - we are an agency and you can easily add us).
Please tell us your app name and page name where it occurs on test. If you don’t mind, you can create a separate page for us where we can tweak the plugin on your side to debug and test its behaviour.
We’ll get back to you after checking your app asap.
Thanks for your patience and understanding.
