Customization to theme?

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.
Asked by: ricardowong

possible to use position sort instead of count?

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. I want to use default "position" sort on your extension. Can you help the feature? Thanks, Matthew
Asked by: Matthew Kim

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Poor support I am not a developer. The module has several issues..... I have requested support several times. 1 out 5 request a received an answer. The extension seems to be good, but if you don't have someone to solve the problems, don't expect the support developer to be any helpful.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Highly Recommended This extension is worth the money. It's also worth the time in setting up Solr. The documentation provided made it somewhat easy to do. The suggestions dropdown is lightening fast. Hau offered a high level of support. He personally integrated the extension into our design and resolved a couple other issues in our Solr config.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very powerful module with support that goes beyond expected The module is very powerful, and the configuration options steadily increase with every new version. Hau Danh at Solrbridge is quick to answer questions, post bugfixes and patches and can even go so far as to help with customizations for a very reasonable fee. The close contact and possibility to get help is probably one of the best reasons to buy this excellent module, I can highly recommend it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good alternative to Magento Solr Search We had a lot of troubles with the core search function. It never worked properly in the many different languages we have in our installation. Solrbridge Search solved them all. Sure there were some issues getting everything exaclty the way we wanted it but the support was (is) very good. Even a year after buying the extension we get constant updates & free support. All our tickets are solved quickly and even new functionality implement w/o added cost. I can highly recommend this extension.
Date published: 2014-02-04
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth waiting for... Despite waiting a couple of times for support, bug fixing and updates, I would recommend this extension to anyone who wants to implement a professional search solution. Because it offers unique functionalities other extensions don't offer. Also the offered support in customisation in functionality and styling makes SOLR Bridge the most scalable and flexible search solotion on the market today. Thumbs up!
