The SMEStorage Joomla component has now been completed. You can download it here. The component allows for easy integration of SMEStorage into Joomla sites and is integrated with the Joomla Content componet , Virtue Mart coponent, JoomlaXplorer, and Seyret Video Component.
We have introduced a new feature that is currently in beta but that is live on the site. It allows you to set a file / files to be public. Once it has been set to public the files can be accessed from your public url which takes the format: http://www.storagemadeeasy.com/users/.
To set the file to be public just click on the file and then the share file icon (the icon to the very right of the file name). Choose to set the file to public and then click ‘Set’.
Once the file is uploaded if you go to your public files url as described above you will see the shared public files
You can tell that the file is now public as opposed to just shared with a Group as the box around the file has two red spikes comes from it that designate it as public.by
Live for SMEStorage as from now is Twitter integration. You can now enter your Twitter details within your information settings and anytime a user shares a file directly with you via the user of Groups you will get an instant SMS message telling you the name of the file shared – how cool is that !
This also works if a file is shared with you on the move from the iPhone version of the application
In the next few days we hope to release the SMEStorage Joomla component. This will integrate into Joomla websites to provide file and storage services and also will enable the saving of files from the Joomla enabled sites to SMEStorage. We’ll blog more about it soon but just wanted to whet your appetite !
We have a new beta of our Firefox Plug-in. This time with beta support or sharing files either via email or using Groups. You can download the plug-in here.
To use the plug-in just drag it onto your Firefox screen and the installer will start. Once loaded choose SMEStorage as the provider and choose Manage Accounts and enter your Username and password.
We’re busy adding some more features to the SMEStorage website, which address the user requests we have been seeing in the last couple of months.
The first is the ability to get a download link for a file from the browser itself. Of course you can already shared a file with other people via the email feature, which allows you to select a file or multiple files, set an expiry date, and send them. We’ve had requests however for an easy way to get file links so that they can be embedded in blogs, etc. To that end we are putting in a new feature that gives you a unique link whenever you click on a file.
We are also continuing to tweak and add features the email backup service. This allows you to backup any email account directly to SMEStorage, whether it is secure or not. A couple of things that had been pointed out to use where timeouts with large Inboxes and the lack of anything visual as the emails are processes. Both of these will be addressed over the next couple of days, and we’ll do a more complete feature on the Email backup service when we have done the tweak.
