Subject [jira] [Updated] (SOLR-3317) Admin UI: Improve request handler / qt in query form
Date Fri, 13 Apr 2012 05:27:25 GMT


David Smiley updated SOLR-3317:

    Attachment: SOLR-3317.patch

Looks good.  I am supplying an updated patch with other changes/cleanup and some questions
for you:
* Some <div class="fieldset"> tags were not closed so I closed them.
* Some id="..." attributes were not unique notably dismax & edismax since they share many
parameters. So I added a differentiating prefix to keep them unique.
* I added title="..." tags to _some_ of the input elements to offer basic tooltip help.  I
didn't do all of them -- I'm getting tired ;-)

* Why surround the labels to these fields in anchor tags when the label tag alone will work;
right?  Notice 'q' is done this way, unlike most fields.  And *if* the anchor tags serve a
useful purpose, then what does rel="help" add?

> The query form in the admin UI could use an improvement regarding how the request handler
is chosen; presently all there is is a text input for 'qt'. The first choice to make in the
form above the query should really be the request handler since it actually handles the request
before any other parameters do anything.  I think it'd be nice if it was filled with "/select"
by default to make it very clear what's there, although I realize most of this query form
seems to prefer blank values as defaults.  When the form creates the URL to submit to Solr
for the search, it needs to do something different depending on wether this value starts with
a '/'.  If it does, this goes where "/select" goes in the URL normally (i.e. it's the tail
end of the path after the core).  If it doesn't then it goes into the 'qt' URL parameter.
> I did something similar to the old 3x UI in SOLR-3161 that got committed to 3.6.
