Hey folks, I'm continuing down the path of utilizing Omeka to make 6000+ scanned issues of local newspapers available for one of our libraries and while it hasn't necessarily been the smoothest trip, I'm getting there.
After solving an issue related to Solr and PDF Text (hint: change the 'PDF Text' 'Text' field type to 'Item' instead of 'File' and reindex!) I'm having a couple other interesting issues with Solr Search; pagination doesn't seem to work and when I search for something in quotes, the search query isn't displayed in the search box on the results page, as terms would be if they were not in quotes.
I wonder if I've done something horribly wrong... or maybe just crazy for trying to do this with Omeka instead of Drupal, or even a from-scratch rails app.
If you take a look at http://history.kalkaskalibrary.org/solr-search?q=kennedy the search term is correctly displayed in the search box on the page, but the pagination links all link to the current page, not page=1, page=2 etc. SolrSearch includes a pagination.php in the public views, but it doesn't seem to actually be used.
And, if you look at http://history.kalkaskalibrary.org/solr-search?q=%22kennedy%22 you'll note that "kennedy" is not displayed in the search box on the results page. Odd. (It also seems facets where if the facet names have double-quotes in them break horribly, as well -- if I narrow by the facet "Issue of "The Leader and The Kalkaskian" Newspaper.(836)" the results page displays 0 results and is labeled "Description Issue of (remove)". It seems like there is widespread mishandling of special characters (whether it's a missing rawurlencode() somewhere or what, I do not know)).
Has anyone else run into any of these little buglets or should I go open more issues on the solrsearch github? Thanks! :)
