I am running WP as a CMS at the moment and I've been looking for a decent search engine plugin to index the site. The requirements are:

  • Facet posts based on custom taxonomies (aka, be able to drill down based on taxonomies assigned to posts)
  • Fast
  • Does not display the actual post but rather an excerpt

Nice to haves: - Display most recent comment date, author

I have come across the Apache SOLR plugin and it does a decent job except for faceting by custom taxonomy. It facets by Categories, Tags, and Author but the Categories is so convoluted that I might as well rethink how I apply categories to the posts.

Does anyone have any experience with this? Thanks!

1st You're looking for a search result display, not for a search engine.

2nd It's as easy as modifying the Search Results Template.

Excerpt can be used like normal in your templates loop.

Fast, depends highly on your themes code and the plugins you use, as well as your server, so I skip this point.

Facet Without a link to the plugin, it's hard to tell. A live example would be good as well.
