Debug Solr queries

Solr is great! When you have a site even with not so much content and you want to have a full text search, then using Solr as a search engine will improve a lot the speed of the search itself and the accuracy of the results. But, as most of the times happen, all the good things also come with a drawback too. In this case, we talk about a new system which our web application will communicate to. This means that, even if the system is pretty good by default, you have to be able in some cases to understand more deeply how the system works.This means that, besides being able to configure the system, you have to know how you can debug it. We'll see in the following how we can debug the Solr queries which our applications use for searching, but first let’s think of a concrete example when we need to debug a query.

Creating nested lists with panelizer and view panes

For one of our customer projects, we wanted to have a list with all past projects. There are two types of projects selected among applicants every year: a winner and there are several finalists or runner ups.

The idea was to show the winner of each year followed by the finalists/runner ups of the year. This should be done in a list where the actual year is the top one followed by the others.
