Subject [jira] [Commented] (SOLR-6058) Solr needs a new website
Date Fri, 16 May 2014 13:55:58 GMT


Jan Høydahl commented on SOLR-6058:

Great contribution.

At the bottom on the page you have a list of "Solr Users" with selected logos. How should
those be selected or contributed?

In one way the web page must be true to the non-commercial, neutral nature of being an Apache
project. But on the other side our users are commercial and after having been "sold" on the
nice web site and having tried Solr themselves, the next thing they look for on the site is
"Anyone I trust using it?" and then "Where can I find books, consulting, training and support?".

Today we expose some books, but list of users is well hidden in
and Solr professionals also hide quite well in the oddly named wiki page
- not very well maintained nor beautiful pages and horribly difficult to find.

Could we fix this on the new home page e.g. with some sub-items under the "Community" dropdown
menu? Instead of a boring outdated bullet list, we could have list of  "info cards", each
one presenting a success-story or consulting firm based on some predefined content items and
size-limit. Then perhaps the logo of 5 random users from that list could be presented on the
front-page? Is this accepted by Apache rules? How to maintain?
