How to Edit Display Settings

In the BigCommerce Display settings, you will be able to do the following

Search Magic Content

There are a variety of settings that are available to adjust the Search Magic content.

  • Return All Data in Results: If you'd like search results to return categories or info pages. Set to Yes to show categories or info pages to show and to No to only show products in results
  • Redirect if Only One Item: This option will automatically redirect to the one item that is returned. set to Yes to redirect and No to show the results page.
  • Redirect to product if product sku matches search query: This option will automatically redirect to a product where the search query matches the product sku.  Set Yes to Redirect and No to show results
  • Disable "all" search from returning all data: In Search Magic if your search query is all  search magic will return all data from your store.  Set Yes to disable and No to enable. (This option is good for testing filters)
  • Show Filtering/Facet: This option will allow you to completely disable Filtering in your Search Results and Category Pages (if enabled).  Set Yes to Display And No to Hide.
  • Lowercase Filters: This option is used to normalize your filter data. So if your data has inconsistent upper and lower case data like Usa or USA, it is recommended you set the value to Yes as then both these filter values will be combined. If your data is consistent and you have abbreviations like USA and you'd like to keep your data in the correct abbreviations, Set value to No.  
  • Image Placeholder for products or categories missing images: If you are missing images for your products or categories (if enabled), then you can upload your own custom image placeholder. If not we will use the default image shown.

Search Result Product Sort Order

In the Sort tab, you will be able to adjust the Sort Label and adjust search results by weighting certain field values higher, which in turn will adjust how search results will return.

  • Setup Default Sorting:   This section allows you adjust the default relevancy sort, so that specific products are returned before other items. To understand search results relevancy works, click here
    • Field:  In the field drop-down, you'd which product field you'd like to make an adjust to the sort relevancy
    • Action: In the action drop down there 3 actions available, Equals, Field Value and Is Not Empty. 
      • Equals, will adjust the sorting on the field and the value that you that you enter. 
      • Field Value, will adjust the sorting based on the field value, given the value is an integer. You have 3 modifier options available, None, Multiply, Square Root, Reciprocal.  
      • Is Not Empty, will adjust the sorting of the field if the value is not empty.
    • Weight:  Allows you to boost the selected field and action, so that the results will appear higher.
    • Default Sorting Examples are shown below
      • In the below example, we have adjusted the search result sorting, so that any products returned in the search results will be sorted so that products with the brand of acme will show up first and then products with the brand of nike would should up next, but based on the how relevant the product is to the search query.
