Introducing Joomlatools Connect

Document indexing and file thumbnails have been DOCman’s most requested features for years. However, most web hosting packages don’t offer enough flexibility and processing power for such heavy duty jobs.

That’s why we created Joomlatools Connect to bring document indexing and file thumbnails to DOCman. Joomlatools Connect is hosted on our best-in-class infrastructure rather than relying on your Joomla hosting.

Document indexing

Searching for **color printing** using Joomla's smart search.

Searching for color printing using Joomla’s smart search.

Search for text inside uploaded files in DOCman. Indexing happens automatically on our servers on upload. Searching indexed files is supported through Smart Search, good old Joomla search, or DOCman’s built-in search.

We supports over 20 different file types:

  • Adobe Portable Document Format (PDF)
  • Image files (JPEG, PNG, GIF, TIFF, BMP, RAW)
  • Microsoft Office (DOC, DOCX, XLS, XLSX, PPT, PPTX)
  • Open Document Format (ODT, ODS, ODP, ODG, ODC)
  • Text files (TXT, RTF, TSV, TAB)

Security and privacy

The first question that may come to your mind is that if Joomlatools Connect a secure service? After all, your files are processed on our servers and then copied back to your Joomla installation.

The answer is yes. All communication between your application and our servers is encrypted using industry standard SSL/TLS. We recommend that your application uses an SSL/TLS encrypted endpoint to receive this payload in a secure way but this is up to you and your specific needs.

We don’t keep a copy of your files on our server. Once we index or process your files, we copy them back to your Joomla website and delete them from our own servers. We only store file size, type and other statistics to help us monitor and improve our service.

Available in Business and Agency subscriptions

Joomlatools Connect is available for customers using Business and Agency subscriptions.
