Pre-requisites


📌 Important: If you are using a CMS, please visit our Plugins section to install Doofinder in your site.

Installation

Doofinder can be installed in four easy steps. If you already have a Doofinder account, please log in, otherwise you can register for one.

Click on ‘Create Store’ to begin the installation process.

Step 1: Store

Enter the URL of your website and hit ‘Enter’, then select “Other” in the field of the platform you are using and click on Continue

Step 2: Search Engine

In this step, you will define the configuration of your search engine. You can choose a name, a language, a currency and a business sector.

  • Name: By default, Doofinder uses the URL entered during the previous step, but you can type a name of your choice. This name will be applied to the store, the search engine and the layer.

  • Language: Select a language from the dropdown menu.

  • Currency: Choose a currency.

  • Sector: Select the sector that applies to your store.

Once done, click on ‘Continue’.

Step 3: Feed

It is time to index your feed. You can choose to use a file or an API (for this example, we will use the available sample feed).

File Feed: Enter your feed URL or drop the CSV, XML file.

API: Visit our API Secction.

Then click ‘Create’.

Step 4: Script

You are almost done!

Just copy and paste the script into your website. It has to be in the footer or header so that it applies to all pages of your site.

Click ‘Close’ and go to Search Engines > Settings > Indices to check if the process ended up right.
