About

Netgen Suggest extension implements drop down suggestions on search fields using eZFind/Solr facets. When user starts to type letters in search box suggestions are shown as drop down bellow. Suggestions are sorted by number of occurance in index. When next word is entered new suggestions are based on words entered before.

Extension is based on jQuery component and runs smoothly with ezjscore. For better faceting results we created new type of field for Solr. Existing ezf_df_text can be used but it likes to concatenate words so suggestions will not be good enough.
