This is one of the best piece of code I've found in the JED. This powerfull component extends the search in order to index documents of any kind. I've setup this to work together with a document manager, increasing the usability of my web site. Beside that, JiFile Team is great and responsive! Thumbs up!!!

I was looking for an extension that I could use for indexing & searching content in pdf files and this extension is works great. I did have some issues with the extension not working properly on a specific server configuration but the isApp team was great in addressing the issues and got everything working in short order.

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.

So usefull, so advanced !
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.

Running a site with scientific content I needed an extension that rendered our huge database of literature (mostly pdf) searchable. JiFile is exactly what I was looking for.
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!

A technical extension that has many prerequisites - BUT there are not many competitors and it is free! Support was instant but then went to sleep. However my basic skills were part of the problem - I think this is worth being a commercial product and once it is working I will contribute to its development.

Do exactly what is described. Definitely 5 stars!

Thanks a lot!

I have installed in Joomla 2.5 and it works great with the search function, but it would be better if it also worked with the new Smart Search Plug-in introduced in Joomla 2.5.

I needed an extension to index PDF files and stumbled upon JiFile. Even though there were only a few reviews, I gave it a try and I'm very impressed. Aside from PDFs, it will also index Office files, meta data in JPG and MP3 files and more.

Basically i was facing 2 days worht of work to create articles and attach pdf's just to make the titles searchable from the joomla search function.

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.
