Finder is a very advanced search platform for Joomla! 1.5


The goal is to migrate Finder to be Joomla! 1.7+ compatible for inclusion in a future release of the CMS.

Getting Started

There are two ways to get started using Finder:


  • Click the Downloads button at the top of the page and download the newest posted package (listed by date)


  • Clone the repo to your local system
  • Run 'phing dev_head' to create an installable package based on the current repo


Known Issues

A list of known issues can be found on the Issues Tracker. Additionally, when running the CLI script, it appears that the port must be specified with your database host info in your site configuration.

Currently the indexer can not run on MySQLi. Please edit the libraries/joomla/database/mysqli/mysqli.php. Please edit the condition of the destructor to be is_resource rather than is_object.

Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
