Injecting content between hits

This is the React InstantSearch v7 documentation. React InstantSearch v7 is the latest version of React InstantSearch and the stable version of React InstantSearch Hooks.

If you were using React InstantSearch v6, you can upgrade to v7.

If you were using React InstantSearch Hooks, you can still use the React InstantSearch v7 documentation, but you should check the upgrade guide for necessary changes.

If you want to keep using React InstantSearch v6, you can find the archived documentation.

For now, content injection is only available with React InstantSearch v6. You can vote on this open issue to express interest for content injection in React InstantSearch v7, and help prioritize the creation of this guide.

Content injection consists of inserting data between search results. This pattern can be helpful in a variety of use cases:

  • Displaying promotional or editorial content based on the search parameters, like the query or active refinements
  • Inserting promoted brand banners between hits
  • Showing customized suggestions based on the user profile
