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.

About the Developer

This extension was developed by and is supported by Php4u

Better magento search - best search extension is rated 1.8 out of 5 by 80.
Rated out of 5 by from Unbelievable support. Great work. Great product. Every serious Magento store needs this extension.
Date published: 2011-12-14
Rated out of 5 by from I have installed this extension six times now on various client sites in different languages ranging from 1,000 SKU to 2,200,000 SKU - in each case the Blast Lucene Search performance is excellent and is extremely relevant - this had the effect of a superior end user experience which flows through to making more money for my clients on day one after install. Marcin, the developer, has a combination of top programming skills and real-world ecommerce experience which is evident in this excellent product. This extension is on my must-have list.
Date published: 2011-12-10
Rated out of 5 by from Absolutely a must have extension for any site. The extension works great out of the box and Blast also gives great customer service on any issues that come up. Great extension!
Date published: 2011-11-04
Rated out of 5 by from We've been using this extension for a couple of months in production on our site I can honestly say its the best money we've spent and easily paid for itself in the first week or so. The extension is well written and well supported and is the most cost effective way to improve Magentos awful search out-of-the-box (imho). For us it was the improvement in relevancy of returned results rather than speed improvements (although that's great too). Highly recommended! - Ian

Rated out of 5 by from Developer and support very available and skilled. Thank you!
Date published: 2011-09-12
Rated out of 5 by from This module is simply amazing! the support is second to none. My emails were answered in super quick time. I can't recommend this enough! We have 30,000 products and this search has improved our search to a very good standard.
Date published: 2011-09-08
Rated out of 5 by from Php4u installed this for us yesterday and everyone involved in our project is impressed, it's very accurate and very fast. We haven't changed anything in the config, the results are great just as they installed it.
Date published: 2011-09-02
Rated out of 5 by from we were having very horrible search results from magento default search. Magento by default does an "OR" search so it was searching for words regardless of where they were and returning 700+ results for almost every search. After installing PHP4U's lucene search module it instantly got refined down drastically and returned better and more appropriate results. I know this is marketed for it's speed but really this module increases better search results at blazing speeds. PHP4U's customer service was EXCELLENT. I've dealt with a lot of companies in the UK and it's hard to get responses, since i'm in the USA but PHP4U's response time was fast and professional. I give this development team 5 stars -Jeremy

Rated out of 5 by from After some testing showed how badly the Magento standard search was performing for us, we installed this Blast Search extension. Wow! this is a serious improvement and has made a huge difference to the relevance of the results in our shop. The configuration has meant we've been able to set it exactly as we want it and the fuzzy parsing of variations and spelling mistakes means the right results get shown even if the search query isn't so great. Synonyms and standard search terms are still supported. Our search has gone from dreadful to excellent for very little outlay and next to no hassle. Add to this the excellent support and assistance we've received from Marcin and I would heartily recommend this product for your shop. Thanks again. James

Rated out of 5 by from No need to install Java and Solr (which take 700Mb of memory when it is starting up and when it is empty...) Really usefull for production and performance for search feature, unfortunately not enough well know by people... Really work fine, will be in production in, A must have !
