Subject Re: using edismax without velocity
Date Sat, 06 Apr 2013 14:27:54 GMT
In fact, just remove or comment these lines from the /browse handler
and you won't be using velocity, it might make a good place to start

      <!-- VelocityResponseWriter settings -->
       <str name="wt">velocity</str>
       <str name="v.template">browse</str>
       <str name="v.layout">layout</str>
       <str name="title">Solritas</str>
