Getting Started

IndexU, a product developed by Milton WorldWide Media LLC, is not only a complete directory-based portal solution providing you the ability to add, modify and delete resources, but also enables you to customize the look and feel of the entire website with the help of templates. I tested the product on a Linux server, although the product is partially compatible with Windows as well. I feel that you will not be able to utilize all the features of the product if you configure it in Windows server due to the non availability of certain modules, such as PHP GD2 library and cURL. I would recommend you install the product in a Linux server for maximum performance, even though it can be installed under Windows.

In order to install the product, you need to login to the secured client area, download the necessary files including the templates, upload them into the root directory of your website and follow the installation steps outlined in the manual. Initially, you should create a database and a user under it from the web based control panel provided by your hosting provider. I did not face any difficulties during the installation phase as I completely followed all the required steps. The setup wizard will, however, provide an alert message in red if you miss any of the steps outlined in the installation manual. The product is available free of cost, but you can post only 100 links. I would suggest you to test drive the free edition in case you want to explore the features included with the product before investing for the paid license. This will also enable you to access the suitability of the product.

Title: Unsupported Software.

This company believes its funny playing word games with its customers. There's a reason for you to not buy 'ready made' software. As a customer I felt completely betrayed & fooled to have paid for free unlimited software upgrades for software the developers never even cared to continue upgrading. Save your money.
Title: The Custom Field Feature

Seems you haven't explore IndexU custom field feature yet. This is one of the thing I like about IndexU. With this feature, you can build almost any kind directory type you want :). Very useful feature, especially if you want to build niche directories.
