Blast Lucene Search - Advanced magento search 4.8 5 77 77
Great support Hi, We were installing this extension on Magento CE 1.7 today. Something went wrong and we cannot make it work for some reason so we had to ask the developer for help. He spent at least 2 hrs with us, but made it work! The extension itself is very good - we've been using it for more than a year already. Much easier than to set up solr with similar results :) April 5, 2013
Great support We requested an additional new testing domain license and it was send to us within an hour. The next morning our client told us we got the domain wrong! So we requested support to have the license changed. They just gave us a new license without any questions within a few hours. I'm not used to encoded modules, but if support is this fast. It's not a real problem. March 27, 2013
Must have extension I typically don't writte reviews, but I this time is different This extension is incredible usefull, it is much better than the Magento core search function, plus the support is great. Documentation is also very well written. Keep up the good work ! Very proffesional. March 12, 2013
Ricerca di base magento migliorata e sviluppatori disponibili L'estensione fa abbastanza bene quello che dice, è ben configurabile da backend e, anche se il prezzo è un po' alto devo dire che riesce a migliorare la ricerca di base di magento, che oggettivamente non funziona in modo decente. NOTA: non aspettatevi che per una manciata di euro il sito diventi google! Però il miglioramento c'è! Gli sviluppatori sono rapidi nel generare le licenze e disponibili a sconti per licenze aggiuntive su installazioni multidominio. Anche il supporto tecnico per problemi di funzionamento e aggiornamento estensione è buono. March 6, 2013
Fills a void from Magento Been using this module for over a year and it has filled the search void that is in Magento allowing better results and an easier experience for our customers. Stock search would return many false positives and results but with the module we get a better accuracy for searching by sku, title, etc. Worth the money.. Installation is easy and customer service is also prompt. Most customers won't browse through your site if they know what they want, so proper search results are necessary. February 26, 2013
Excellent product The extensions is easily to install and configure and works as expected. Also, the support is at high standards. The reply times to tickets is very fast, about 5-6 hours and the solutions provided always prove to be the correct ones. February 25, 2013
Excellent product with excellent support! We had a problem with slashes and search results. Within a couple of days we received an updated version of the extension. They said that they will give me an answer after the weekend, but I got it on Friday. That's awesome! People can now search a lot better on my webshop. February 22, 2013
This search really works well. Support is great, and everything is answered in very quick time. Has made such an improvement to our store, people can actually find what they need quickly February 12, 2013
Great module, it drastically improved our search results. I would recommend everybody to use this module instead of their 'standard magento search', which is useless. They are very willing to help you with any questions, and that all within a few hours of waiting time. Perfect! February 12, 2013
A must have extension, has made both our stores search work like it should. Received excellent help and support from Marcin, couldn't recommend the extension and company highly enough! February 10, 2013

Hi
Sorry for delay in reply - but those questions are not posted to us from connect.

If enough people will want it - we can add cms indexing there. For now only 3 people in 3 years asked for it.

Hello,

Please answer the previous question about CMS content. Does Blast Lucene offer the option to index CMS content, and if not, when will that feature be made available?

Thanks

Does lucene refer to Apache lucene and does it run on solr? Or, is solr an added option?

Answer: 
Hi
Thanks for the answer. No - SOLR is not required as we use php port to Lucene.

Please let us know if you have any other concerns
