Sounds like something that needs to be done when Solr is configured  
for the first time so I would put it in the installation guide. What  
happens if the default search field is not defined? Will search crash,  
return no results or something else entirely?  

To be honest, it behaves strangely, it doesn’t crash all the time. I just tried using the
Solr backend (and also generating a schema) without modifying the default option in the solrconfig.xml
file (i.e. not modifying the default “text” field), and it worked. However, it happened
to crash and throw this[1] error. And that’s why I thought it would be good to change the
field anyway, as there is no “text” field in the Bloodhound schema.

in the BH schema). So basically, this only needs to be changed once. Should I then specify
this as a step in the installation guide? On one hand, this would allow the user to easily
choose the default field to be searched, but on the other hand this means one additional installation
