Sometimes you wished that all of Drupal cache would be disabled for the sake of testing or any other purpose.

Just call the enable/disable function at will in your custom code. Dont forget to enable caching for production, if you intend to use this in your development

To help people understand what this slightly complex module actually does I made some sequence diagrams. There is one for Apache Solr and one for what Acquia Search does to extend it.

I've been a member of the Drupal community for quite some time now. (more than 5 years it seems!). Also I've been trying to focus on the Search front, more specifically on the Apache Solr Search Integration front. Since September 2011 I have been working on Acquia Search, the Apache Solr Module and all of its derivatives. In this blog I would like to explain what that means from a technical perspective and take you on a ride through time and possibly even the future!

In this third and fast paced blog series I'll be talking about Apache Solr Clear Url's.

in the second part of this Let's talk Apache Solr I'll be handling the revamp of Apache Solr Attachments.

The module already exists since the early days of Drupal 6, where there was not even a discussion about entities. We were talking about nodes as if they were the only important thing that would ever exist in Drupal. Anything could be done with nodes, you name it! And I'll tell you... I've seen some ugly things that people have done with those poor nodes...
