Patterns for Solr implementations

Does anyone have any code patterns for implementing Solr search in a Performance plan or above? I have a client who wants search on their site but their content is such that it will benefit from Solr vs. default WordPress search. Also, they’re going to want some filtering capabilities to sort through lots of content in various categories and tags. Looking to get a leg up quickly if you have examples to share.


Pantheon has docs on rolling out Solr for Wordpress ( using the Solr Power add-on. That includes facets for tags, categories, author, and page type.

Do you have specific questions beyond this?


Thanks. I’ll look into it for the next time this request comes up. The client decided to just use the native WP search instead of upgrading to Performance Small for use of Solr.
