Store Settings

When Doofinder is installed, a STORE is created. This store will have a name, a Store ID (identifier), a related URL, a business sector to which it belongs, its different languages and currencies that will be its search engines; and it will use a UNIQUE script, with a predefined design, for all those search engines. All this information can be found under 'Store Settings'.

What Can Be Done In 'Store Settings'?

In the store setups section, you will find the store ID information and the installation script. You can view and edit the name and sector of the store. Also, see the layer you are using or select a new one; add and delete languages and currencies to the search engines; link your Google Analytics account and even delete a store.

CSS Selector

We use a CSS selector to indicate where on the website we want to trigger the layer when the customer clicks. Enter a CSS selector, like #search-box or input[name="q"] to choose the element or elements in your page used to launch the layer.

If you want to learn how to choose the CSS selector, read this article.

Search Engine Language & Currency

Choose the default search engine that will display results for each combination of language and currency. From here you can add more languages and currencies, link them to a search engine, and even remove them.


Serialize State to Browser's URL

This option generates a dynamic URL that can be shared with other users. If enabled, the layer is reloaded with its most recent state when the page is refreshed in the browser.
