“We had already provided several Solr integrations in the past but the challenge here was a little different.”
Watershed is a cinema and media centre in the heart of Bristol’s waterfront. The centre has been around for over 30 years and with resources on a wide range of media production the site had an enormous amount of content. They needed a a simple and intuitive way for users to search through it.
Being a Drupal site the obvious solution was Solr. We had already provided Solr integration for several Drupal sites in the past but the challenge here was a little different.
As well as the Drupal site, Watershed also have a separate database managing all their events and cinema showings.
We provided a search integration that provided a seamless experience for users, allowing them to search through both events and site content.
