Your administrator will help you obtain the needed information. You’ll need your API Key, Experience Key, Business ID, Locale, the URL of the search results page, and a version number for our javascript library

How does the plug in work?

Search bar: Under the hood, this shortcode calls our Answers Javascript Library to create the search bar component using your provided configuration.
Search Results page: This shortcode creates a div and adds a script tag to place the iframe with your Answers search results.

Do I need to host the search results page on WordPress?

No, you can still use our search bar shortcode, and link out to a different page for the search results page.
