Very good extension , it return the result you want and a lot better than magento standard search . Also they have a perfect support to solve any problem . October 18, 2012
Perfect extension and even better technical support with very fast responses. Recommending! October 16, 2012
Fantastic extension and excellent support. We experienced remarkably better search results right away and we haven't even delved into all of the individual settings available with this extension to enhance results even further. Great support response time even with US - UK time difference. 5 Stars. October 12, 2012
Great extension, must have for magento store. We have over 100K products, this extension returns highly relevant results, compared to default magento search. Support replied to our request winthin a few hours. Recommend. September 27, 2012
we use this extension and its just great! the support is also very good! the installation was done in less than 10 minutes! we just recommend it. Best regards, Ferati Lensfox.ch September 27, 2012
Hi, I'm interested in testing your extension but the demo store (and your company webpage) doesn't work. Could you please fix it? Thanks in advance. Best regards, Michał Biarda August 29, 2012
Excellent search extension for anyone who has issues with a large number of SKU's. The results between the standard Magento search and this module are mind blowing - you wont find a better search module than this! The support was first class, I would go as far as saying the best I have ever received from a Magento developer. Thanks! August 20, 2012
Just installed the 1.6 update with did you mean and 404 redirect functions. Makes searching on the store almost fool proof. Fantastic support, the best I have received from any Magento developer. August 1, 2012
Excellent extension, great improvement in both quality of search results and speed! With 20.000+ products our search was very slow but with this extension results are shown without waiting. Also their developer helped me to modify our ajax search for free! Tnx for saving my time! July 31, 2012
Honestly, this is a must have extension! The results between the standard Mage search amp; this module just can't be compared. 1. The set-up instructions are so very easy to follow (I did it and I'm not a developer). 2. I did have a couple of little hiccups and the support is second to none. Even though they say they'll respond within 24 hours, it's always in less than 30 minutes. 3. The search results are spot on. With very little tweaking of the parameters I have fantastic search results. Like I said, this is a must for anyone that wants to have relevant search results. I recommend this very highly. Thanks again php4u!! July 25, 2012

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
