There are a lot of bits that need to be glued together to make this work and this extension takes care of all that.
Very pleased with the response.
Very neat, really, just need a plugin for finder and it would be perfect.
We using Edocman for storing documents, and developed a free finder plugin for Edocman + a patch into Edocman to use the indexing of Jifile, and it's just perfect for us now !
But Jifile is the only solution that I know that provide such a good code and versatility.
It requires some advanced skills to set it up and optimize search results but - this is almost the best part of JiFile - support was always fast, polite, helpful, and of course very skilled.
So, although I had to invest some time to have it fully functional, now that it works I can say it was worth every effort.
Highly and frankly recommended!
Found this extension at the last minute and in 20min it had indexed not just the title but the content of 109 pdf's allowing them to be searchable quickly from the joomla search function.
When i seen there were no reviews for this extension i had to create an account so i could submit one - dont be put off by the deisgners foreign language website - just down load - install and everything is in english.
