Media A-Team Assumes Management of Fabrik Open Source Project

In case you missed the press release that was distributed today, we are excited to announce that Media A-Team will be stepping into the management role for the day-to-day operations of the Fabrik open source project. We have been long time user and supporters of Fabrik and are excited for this opportunity to take the project forward by adding more hands on deck.

Hugh Messenger will still be a full-time Fabrik guru, and Rob Clayburn, the original project developer, will still be connected to the project in a consultant and developer role. Also, the much appreciated core of Fabrik contributors are still making commits everyday.

In the near future we will be rolling out a fresh new look and have many goals for the future of Fabrik, such as enhanced support, more robust documentation and tutorials, and professional plugins. We also plan on being more visible at Joomla! and PHP events, so stop by and say hi if you see us in the community.

If you haven't used Fabrik in a while, we highly encourage you to download the latest version and take it for a spin. If you are an active Fabrik user, please get involved with us on our forums.

Live chat support closed

Dear users

We have decided to close the live chat support option for professional supporters. This feature was not sustainable with our workload and led to people leaving questions there that were not answered in a timely manner. From now on please address all support questions via the forums in the appropriate board. 


Thanks for your understanding.

Fabrik 3.3.4 Released!

The Fabrikar team is pleased to announce the release of Fabrik 3.3.4 for Joomla! Download Fabrik 3.3.4

Under the hood we have started to implement dependency injection into our models, and plugin code, this is part of our continued work on modernising Fabrik's code base.

There's been a couple of small but useful changes in the admin pages, now when you create a list or element and type in its label a corresponding table or element name value is automatically inserted for you. This really does decrease the time it takes to build your Fabrik application.

We've had some great conversations with users over SEO the results of which means that all list, form and details views now produce canonical links in the document's head. These links define the source URL for the content, and are used by Google to avoid duplicate content issues, an important step in increasing your page rankings! Along side this we have also updated our sef404 code to work with the latest version of Joomla, this gives you greater control over how your SEF links are created.

Finally we've added more JLayout overrides, details of those changes are listed further down the page. You can read more about how to use JLayouts in Fabrik on our JLayout wiki page. The main use case for JLayouts is when you want to use a Bootstrap 3 template, the Fabrik team maintains a separate Fabrik Bootstrap 3 JLayout project which we recommend you install alongside your Bootstrap 3 Joomla template.
