Solr is a powerful open source search engine server which has become a popular choice for extending the search capabilities of Plone sites. The default configuration works well, but how do you answer the client's request to "Make my search just like Google's"?
In this talk we will take a look at the various options that are available for configuring Solr's schema and configuration. We will discuss how to set up stop words, spell checking, n-grams and alternate query handlers. We will see what effect these settings will have on the search results and find out how to debug problems when they arise.
