If for some reason the script is not generated automatically, you can copy the script from the Doofinder Admin Panel 'Store Settings', and go to your BigCommerce panel > Storefront > Script Manager, click on 'Create a script' and then, paste the script.

For older versions, go to Advanced Settings > Data Solutions > Site Verification Tags > Connect > HTML tag > Add DF script.

Search Engine Creation and Indexing

The search engine is automatically created and the indexing process is conducted via GraphQL. This automatically generates a user named "doofinder indexator", which is added to your customers' database in BigCommerce. This user is essential for the indexing operation and should not be modified or removed from the BigCommerce database.

Configure the plugin


The full screen Live Layer will be enabled by default, on desktop and mobile. If you want to create a new layer, see this document 'Create a layer'.

Multi-Storefront in BigCommerce

The Doofinder Plugin now supports BigCommerce's multistorefront feature, offering a streamlined solution for managing multiple storefronts efficiently.
