Drupal Developer - Search - Facet specialist

Job Description

I'm looking for somebody that can can help with a Drupal site by doing the following:

Help me decide which is the better combination between:

Option 1) Display Suite + Search API + Faceted Search
Option 2) Display Suite + Apache Solr + Faceted Search

Option 1 is already implemented but Display Suite does not work so I cannot configure the view.

If Option 1 is decided then the job will be to get display suite working with current view, facets and content type. There is also a date facet block that has disappeared and I cannot get it to display (It was working previously) so you would need to fix this as well.

If Option 2 is decided then I will need the following setup:

1. My site to connect with my remote Solr server. Search API connects and indexes my Solr server no problems. The Apache Solr module does not connect and I can't get it working. This would be the first task.

2. Set up a view to display faceted search for a specific content type.

3. Ensure that display suite works with this Solr search view.

This should be a relatively quick job for somebody who has extensive experience in Drupal development.
