How to set Clerk.io up on a Magento store.

Before you read the guide!

When you add a new store in Clerk.io our setup guide will guide you through everything. The steps below are just for external reference ;-)

Log in to my.clerk.io here

1. Installing the extension

To install the extension simply follow the guide below:

  1. Download the latest version of our Magento extension.
  2. Go to System -> Magento Connect -> Magento Connect Manager.
  3. In "Direct package file upload", upload the ClerkForMagento-x.x.x.tgz file to install it.

2. Connecting a Magento store to Clerk.io

  1. Go to System -> Configuration -> Clerk to open the extension.
  2. Select your desired store from the store selector in the upper left corner.
  3. Login to my.clerk.io, click your store, and choose Magento as the platform.
  4. Take your API keys from the Install Plugin screen of the Setup Guide, and copy-paste them to the Magento module page.
  5. Click Save Config, and open your webshop, to initialise Clerk.io.
  6. In my.clerk.io, click Next.
  7. Copy the Import url from the extensions settings panel into the Import URL field as shown below.
  8. Click Update Settings and the sync will start.
  9. Click Next.

3. Setting up Search

Clerk.io's search engine consists of a Live-Search dropdown and a Search page. Both can be enabled from the extension by following these steps:

  1. Choose both Search-As-You-Type and Search Page from the Choose Features screen.
  2. Go to to the extension page in the Magento backend and enable Search and Live-Search from there.
  3. Make sure that the Clerk Template ID in the extension matches the name of the template that you have just created. Usually this will be "search" and "live-search". You can check the ID's on the Front-End Integration page of the Setup Guide.
  4. Click Save Config.

4. Setting up the Powerstep

  1. Choose the 3 Recommendation boxes under Power Step from the Choose Features screen.
  2. Go back to the extension page in the Magento backend and enable it under Powerstep settings.
  3. Choose the Page option, and type in the ID's of your Content blocks, separated by commas. You can check the ID's on the Front-End Integration page of the Setup Guide.
  4. Click Save Config.

5. Creating and Embedding Recommendations

  1. Create unique Content blocks for each slider/recommendations box.
  2. Choose the relevant Type for each recommendation in its own Content block.
  3. If you havent done it yet, create a Template that you can use in all the recommendations, so they have the same styling.
  4. Get the embed-code for each Content, and put it on the relevant page in Magento.
