For this tutorial we will be using the Search by Algolia plugin found here:

Search by Algolia – Instant & Relevant results

Summary of this tutorial:

Start by visiting the Algolia website and signup for an account.

www.algolia.com/

With your account set up, activate the Search by Algolia plugin which adds a new section to your WordPress admin area for you to visit.

On that page you will need to add your ID and API keys which can be found in your Algolia account dashboard.

Save your added keys and IDs then go under Algolia, Autocomplete page and select which you want indexed, we only index posts in this tutorial. You can also decide if you want to enable autocomplete for the search box.

Once that has been saved and indexed you can go to the Search Page section to select to use Algolia in the backend to display the instant searches in your search.

You may want to try deleting and then reinstalling your theme to see if that fixes the issue.

Hello. Is there a particular plugin or a way to add a top level menu or links like phone number, email address or social media links on one's site as you mostly on an eCommerce site? So eager and curious to know how that's done. Thanks in advance
