Solr Search for NodeBB

From Wikipedia:

Solr (pronounced "solar") is an open source enterprise search platform from the Apache Lucene project. Its major features include full-text search, hit highlighting, faceted search, dynamic clustering, database integration, and rich document (e.g., Word, PDF) handling.

This plugin extends NodeBB to utilise an installation of Apache Solr as a search backend.

  2. Activate it in the Plugins page
  3. Restart NodeBB
  4. Check that the plugin has successfully connected to the search engine. If not, adjust as necessary.
