Postcode Lookup Contribution

Drupal Planet Drupal Web Development CMS Websites Update Release

...And the story of how two unlikely organisations drove innovation in the Drupal Platform.

While delivering continual support for an energy clients Drupal website, we wanted to implement a Postcode Lookup feature, with auto-complete functionality. Existing solutions were either too basic or needlessly expensive, but we couldn’t justify building a new solution from scratch.

Sharing Content Across Multiple Drupal 8 Sites. Part 2: Rendering Results

Drupal Web Development CMS Websites OpenSource

We’re back for Part 2 of this content and search sharing project, so let’s have a quick recap:

In Part 1, we set up migrations to pull in regional content to the national site and configured a Solr core to index them for location searches. Then we altered the Solr queries, so that the default behaviour only shows content from the current site.

The remaining step is to render the search results that come from other sites. The main problem here is that the default Drupal/Solr/Views integration uses Solr to find the content before rendering it through Drupal’s rendering engine. However, the regional sites are unable to render content from the national site... at least not through the usual process.
