Deploy the “Complete the Look” Engine ↑ Back to top

  1. Deploy the Engine

    Click Deploy now in the message that appears after saving the Engine. Altenatively:

    • Navigate to WooCommerce > Recommendations > Locations.
    • Search for and select the “Complete the Look” Engine.
    • Click the Deploy button.
  2. Configure Display Settings
    • In the Title field, enter “Complete the Look”. This will be displayed above the recommended products.
    • Select a number of Product columns and Product rows for the product recommendations. Use the default settings to display a single row of 4 products.
  3. Choose Location

    Select the Location where you’d like the recommendations to appear. To display the recommendations before the product page tabs, choose Product > Before Tabs.

  4. Add Visibility Conditions

    Add Visibility Conditions to display “Complete the Look” recommendations conditionally. For example, you may want to offer them only if the currently viewed product has a specific tag:

    • Go to the Visibility Conditions section.
    • Add a Product tag condition.
    • In the dropdown that appears, select in.
    • Finally, add one or more tags in the last field. In this case, we added the light-brown-formal-look tag.

    This ensures that the recommendations will be displayed only when viewing a product from the light-brown-formal-look tag.

Tips ↑ Back to top

Notes on Full Page Caching ↑ Back to top

If your server is configured to serve cached content/pages, certain recommendation engines deployed in catalog/product pages may:

  • fail to display dynamic, personalized, or conditional content; or even
  • not be rendered at all.

To get these recommendations to display properly for visitors without an active session, you can use an alternative method for rendering recommendations that will bypass your server’s page cache on these pages:

  1. Go to WooCommerce > Settings > Recommendations.
  2. Locate the Deployments rendering > Use AJAX option and enable it.

Note that enabling this option may introduce a noticeable delay between the time that a page has fully loaded and the time that recommendations become visible to visitors without an active session. This delay will depend on the speed of your server, and the quality of your each visitor’s network connection. If this is an issue, the next option is to completely disable the page caching features enabled on your site/server (not recommended!).
