Zen Cart - Apache Solr Integration

(2) 5 out of 5 stars


The Apache Solr Integration module works best when you want to use multiple filters for same attribute of your web store. It also supports Ajax navigation by using history pushstate/popstate. With this zen cart module, you can always use price slider with auto update and submit button.

When you view our demo, you will see the Misspelling correction (Did you mean). It's a feature of solr.

Solr is the popular, blazing fast open source enterprise search platform from Apache. Its major features are full-text search, hit highlighting, faceted search, dynamic clustering, database integration, rich document (e.g., Word, PDF) handling, and geospatial search. Solr is highly scalable, used in many largest internet sites in the world.

For More detail please visit http://lucene.apache.org/solr/#intro

The module Solr Bridge Search

This is a integration of Solr into Zen Cart to make the Zen Cart search more robust (following Google search). How it actually works? please see the following picture for the general idea:

The extension has the following key features:

  • Faceted search.
  • Auto suggestion.
  • Misspelling correction (Did you mean).
  • Attribute search weight (Specify which product attribute more significance for search). With this feature, administrator can set which attribute is more significance than other. Ex: product name is more significance than description.
  • Product attributes filter (Now it is ready)
  • Categories Solr browse.
  • Performance. (Inherit Solr)

Remarkable yet affordable - can't say enough
With all the talk of conversion rate optimization for e-commerce very little is said about site search which is remotely different than Internet search. I know from 14 years experience in running e-commerce websites that although you may have a good conversion rate of 5%, site search users tend to convert at between 15% and 25% making it an appliance that pays off from day one. If you pay your due diligence you'll find that enterprise site search typically starts at $300 per month and goes up to $1000 a month or more - forever along with the building of a template that will be another thousand dollars. If you're not familiar with Apache Solr - please Google it. It's an open source platform that is used by companies like Netflix, it's used by NASA. AOL Best Buy Instagram, FCC.gov to name a few sites It will scale big data with Hadoop. (Here's the entire list. https://wiki.apache.org/solr/PublicServer) Yet Zucando can add Apache Solr For a single one-time fee for less than a single month of subscription enterprise search. There are few no-brainers in E-commerce. This is one of them Zucando has installed Apache Solr on our site Http://WindyCityParrot.com as well as a long list of Zen Cart Plug-ins. Team zucando prings in evey project on time and within budget

I am interested in purchasing your Zen Cart - Apache Solr Integration. My website is getting big and my search function needs some work. My website: www.invertersupply.com I am looking for a search engine that will be fast and accurate with filters. I have a few questions 1. Does this module affect any core files? 2. will this plugin be compatible with future upgrades? 3. I don’t use product attributes will I be able to filter by categories and manufacturers and Price. 4. Is there someone I can call if I have any other questions?
