Q&A

SOLR needs be installed?

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

CMS Content

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
Asked by: Brineub101
Hi Please see answer above. That can be done, but we had small number of requests for it.

Does it index CMS Content

Hi, Can't see an example of the CMS content being indexed. Is this possible? Thanks
Asked by: osullip
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.

Live site URL change

Hi, When we purchased the extension we bought it for SIMMISHOES.COM. However, we have manage to acquire new domain, which is SIMMI.COM. So, we will be going live with SIMMI.com. Do we need to do anything from our end? If so please guide us through. Many thanks.

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!

Rated out of 5 by from 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!
