Sending featured_image_url to Algolia?

    I say featured_image_url specifically because this would cover category images as well. However, I do not see any clear method to send woocommerce product images to the index. I ask because there is a LOT of management tools within Algloia that are not very valuable unless the images are in the index. Not looking for image search capabilities. Just the need to see the images within the index (just any image attached to the post making me think featured_image_url is the best/easiest).

    It’s an interesting point of view that some external tools could need images for catalog discovery.

    Added to roadmap WPSOLR 23.6.

    No, but I just rechecked the code, and it appears that if you activate the Federated search add-on, image thumbnails will be indexed.

    hmm. I tried this and I don’t see a field that includes the actual image path as needed.

    I do see a new field and another previously that stores the id’s of the images:

    _product_image_gallery_str [“99782,99783,99784”]
    _thumbnail_id_str [“99781”]

    However, neither of the above allows us to display the image within the Algolia UI’s (Merc Studio and the normal UI). We would need the absolute or relative paths to the image(s).

    images
    {
    thumbnail:
    { url: “https://mydomain.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/04/long-product-name-here-150×150.jpg”, width: 150, height: 150 }
    }

    Here is a screenshot of the options they give you when you click “Display Preferences” when viewing an index in the Algolia management UI.

    The image url shoul be stored in ‘post_thumbnail_href_str’

    (you need to reindex your data)

    Final request on this. I noticed that even though the images are now available for each of the products the taxonomy featured image is not available. So for example, brand and product category featured images are showing has having missing images in the Algolia UI.

    Should the change we made be addressing this?
