WordPress Plugin for SearchBlox Now Available

October 10, 2012

Web sites that wish to use WordPress to build their content and SearchBlox for federated search will soon have an easier time uniting the two. On their blog, SearchBlox announces, “WordPress Plugin Makes It Easy to Integrate SearchBlox.” The post by Timo Selvarag reports:

“SearchBlox has released an updated WordPress plugin to search your WordPress site and integrate faceted search results into your site from the SearchBlox Server. Unlike the Solr Search Plugin, there are fields to configure or schema to load. Simply install the plugin and follow the getting started guide to integrate search into your site. SearchBlox provides fast instant search results from the SearchBlox Server. You can also crawl and integrate external sites, feeds and file system based documents for searching within your WordPress site.”

There’s a demo of the plugin here. WordPress is an open source project licensed under the GPL. Begun as a blogging system in 2003, it has grown into a full content management system with thousands of plugins, widgets, and themes now available.

SearchBlox is built on top of Apache‘s Lucene/Solr. SearchBlox was also founded in 2003, and is located in Richmond, Virginia. Their client roster now tops 300 organizations in 30 countries.
