If you want to generate the solr add pages when generating the site then
yes every page should have a link to itself but as .solr extension. This
way forrest automatically will generate this pages, when generating the
rest of the site.

cd whiteboard/plugins/org.apache.forrest.plugin.output.solr/
forrest

This will generate the static site.

since you did not added links, right?

Are you using the dispatcher or skins?

No, you did not understand. I do not assume a running instance of
forrest. When you create your documentation statically the solr server
will be updated as well. 

The dynamic mode allows you to update specific pages. The static the
whole bunch.
