About the Developer

This extension was developed by and is supported by SolrBridge

Solr Bridge Search 4.5 5 25 25
It basically works, but it is still full of bugs :-( It looks like a turn-key solution at first, because it appears to work fine providing great and fast Solr-based search results in Magento. But as you take a closer look on the results this extension displays and start integrating it in a store with multiple views you will discover so many bugs, that you will find yourself coding your own solution. The developer was very supportive at first, but as we discovered one bug after another he finally did not respond anymore. We have recently updated to the newest version (1.9.0) and many bugs and issues we have already reported are still there. The major ones are: - Many prices displayed in the ajax-results are wrong (for instance you see 19.99 in the ajax -results, but 3.29 on the product page); - category and attribute names are taken from the default settings (store_id=0) and thus not translated; - some labels displayed in the frontend are hard-coded in English and do not use translation; - the indexing is extremely inefficient and slow, it takes more than 1h to index 1000 products from cli (Solr itself could do it in 10 minutes or less) and it takes 10-20 seconds to save a product in the backend, because Solr-bridge updates the Solr-document so slow. We thoroughly documented and reported all bugs we have found so far and we were patient. After having updated to the recent version (1.9.0) we have spent lots of time fixing the old bugs and hiding wrong output. We fill sorry for the developer who have spent lots of hours in developing this extension, but we also feel responsible to tell others what to expect here. Conclusion: if you have a single store view in English, you are the lucky one who can probably use it as a turn-key solution. Everyone else will find himself spending hours of time reverse engineering and fixing bugs. June 23, 2013
Excellent product and even better support The product does everything it is promised to do, which is already good enough, but what makes this product even better is the excellent support. The support was ready stretch for extra mile to get our configuration / setup running with the extension. Thank you! Highly recommended! May 22, 2013
Excellent support The support team is highly appreciable. Very prompt reply. I love the extension and services team offers. April 26, 2013
This search is fantastic - and all my customization wishes were realized very well! November 25, 2012
We also need a better search, we own BetterStoreSearch, but it's just OK. This extension looks promising, but when the two sites in the Overview for "who uses" bring up non-relevant pages, it doesn't give us high expectations for the extension. November 20, 2012
Outstanding support from Hau Danh, And Great Work Thanks Again.. October 25, 2012
Outstanding support and patience from Hau - we needed some specific changes and these were sorted for us without any issue - a massive help in getting this working and worth every single penny and then some. New features added without requesting them. Its fast, accurate and lightyears ahead of the default search - spelling mistakes? who cares! your products will be found. Forget josephtikva comments below he's clearly just trolling, our experience has been faultless. 450Eur? cheap for the product and support September 20, 2012
Well I purchased this extension a few months ago, and I can say that Hau (developer) its a SOLR Star, he does not speak my language but guide me step by step to get AWSOME search results. Thanks Hau!! Price might be steep but performance and results speak by itself. I definitely will recommend his search extension, I tried another 2 from large developing companies (bit cheaper but not that much) and one could not even help me on Sphinx config (so not luck to get good results) and the other could not guarantee that will work with 10000s products. He added after our feedback a functionality to weight searches depending on Special attributes and that will definitely help many other businesses to earn more money showing first their most profitable products. I need to say thanks again Hau!! PD: Keep in touch if you develop something new If suit us I would love to be first customer in line ;) August 15, 2012
Thanks for this extension and your support...Awesome \m/ too good with magento 1.6.2 \m/ July 20, 2012
I am really Happy with My decision to go for the Such a good plugin. Support for the customization and using that plugin is amazing. Hau is always ping far.. I really appreciate working and learning new things in magento from hau.. this is great plugin which changed the way my search and catalog .... thanks Hau looking for more innovation from you. good job...

Is it easy to make this extension work with my custom theme?

I am mainly concerned with knowing if this extension can truly integrate with my setup. Do you offer a trial? If not, is there some way I can send my products so you can set up a sample search for me? I find the extension to be a bit pricy for just testing it and later finding it didn't work with my store.

Hi Solr team,
I have used your extension on my site 4 days ago.
but I noticed your extension was using "count" of the attributes for the sort.
http://awesomescreenshot.com/0123131w82

I want to use default "position" sort on your extension.
http://awesomescreenshot.com/0d83131zc2

Can you help the feature?

Thanks,
Matthew
