Adding Facets to your BigCommerce Search Page

How to add filters to your Search Results for your BigComemerce webshop

Clerk.js comes with built in support for Faceted Search.

Any product attributes you send to Clerk.io can be used as part of the Faceted Search.

Let's start with a quick example:

<div id="clerk-search-filters"></div>
<div id="clerk-search-results"></div>

<span
class="clerk"

data-template="@search-page"
data-query="shoes"
data-offset="0"

data-target="#clerk-search-results"

data-facets-target="#clerk-search-filters"
data-facets-attributes='["categories","manufacturer","gender"]'
data-facets-multiselect-attributes='["categories","manufacturer"]'
data-facets-titles='{"categories":"Categories","manufacturer":"Brand","gender":"Sex"}'>
</span>


The data-facets- parts allow you to enable and customise the Faceted Search.

By adding these to your Search Page embed code, facets will be displayed as soon as results are shown.
