JFUploader News

JFU 3.2.5 is released

JFU does now include TFU 3.2.2 with all the new features that comes with it. Also the version for Joomla 3.x is php 7 compatible!
Important: Tested with Joomla 3.7.5.

JFUploader: The best Joomla upload flash component

The JFUploader is the Joomla upload component of the TWG Flash Uploader.

The Joomla Flash Uploader is now JFUploader. The new name was needed because an extension is not allowed to start with Joomla anymore. It also shows that this is not the internal Joomla upload component but a real component with many new features.

You now have the possibility to upload files to your web server the easiest way possible. You simply select the files you want to upload and thats it. No upload HTML form anymore where you have to upload each file individually. You only need Flash 8 or higher installed to use this component.

You can upload files in the backend of Joomla AND you can offer this in the front-end for your users as well. You can create upload profiles and assign them to your Joomla upload users. This gives you the possibility to give e.g. every of your users a different upload directory and/or different rights/functions.

Uploading was never easier!

joomla flash license License

Please note that 2 licenses affect this software bundle. The JFUploader is bridge between Joomla and the TWG Flash Uploader. Therefore all parts that belong to the Joomla integration are distributed under the GNU GENERAL PUBLIC LICENSE. The TWG Flash Uploader Flash itself is distributed under the TWG Flash Upload Freeware License Agreement. Please see license.txt in the download for details.

From the Joomla Webpage
A bridge links Joomla! to an external application (the TWG Flash Uploader) so that they can exchange data and cooperate. On the Joomla! side of the bridge, the bridge is treated just like a component, module, or plugin; it must comply with the GPL unless it is a separate work (and some bridges might indeed be separate works). If the external application is separate enough from Joomla! that it is a separate work under copyright law, it may be licensed under whatever license the holder of its copyright sees fit.
