The app creates color and size filters automatically after installation.

If you have changed the default names of the Color and Size product variant options in BigCommerce, you need to specify their new names in the app. To do so, follow these steps:

  1. Go to the Searchanise control panel > Filters section > Settings tab.
  2. Enter new names into the Filters by options field. 
  3. Apply the changes.
  4. Click the link in the notice or the Force re-indexation button in the app's Dashboard section to start indexation.

You can also change the appearance of filter values from default text to:

  • text in frames for size filters
  • color swatches for color filters 

To show colors as color swatches, all colors have to be assigned to a Color Family.

To change the filter's appearance, follow these steps:

  1. Go to the Smart Search & Filter control panel > Filters section > General tab.
  2. Click the Edit filters button in the top-right corner.
  3. Select color appearance for color filters and size appearance for size filters in the Appearance option. 
  4. Click the Save changes button.
