[Plugin: Solr for WordPress] Facet searching on child categories

  • Nice looking extension – it installed, connected to the solr server and indexed new and existing posts and pages without any effort.

    I am a little confused about the category facets though. When I have a category selected, and there are child categories with posts attached to them, the child category posts are not listed. Only the posts that are *directly* attached to the selected category are listed.

    With faceted searching (multi-faceted or not) the idea is that you start with the largest possible set of posts and reduce it as you (a) add new facets from other different category trees and (b) drill down to lower level (i.e. towards the nodes) categories.

    Is that the way it is supposed to work, or is that something this extension does not yet do?

    Thanks,

  • I have not found any information on this plugin that is less than six months old. Does that mean it is a dead plugin? Or has development moved elsewhere?

    The plugin is not dead and a completely new version is about to be released. There is a few things I have yet to complete, however, it should not be to much longer. To answer you original question, yes the plugin supports this type of faceting. Goto settings and enable “Category Facet as Taxonomy”. Save the changes and reindex your documents.
