Here are the slides for the Fabrik presentation I made last weekend for Joomla Day South Africa. Underneath should also be a copy of the talk I gave as well.

 

If you have a question about the Fabrik site itself, be that how to upgrade your account, or cancel a subscription, I would like to remind you that the site does have a FAQ section that contains a series of answers to some of the most common responses we tend to give people about the site. I've just added a new FAQ today entitled "Why don't you answer my support questions by PM/Email?"

Hugh before his coffee in the morning! Well Hugh 'support gopher' is quiet something - today he posted his 3000th post, thats a staggering 9.34 posts a day!

I'm sure everyone, with me at the forefront, who has had their questions answered, bugs fixed and ribs tickled would like to sincerely thank Hugh for the amazing effort he has put in since joining these forums.

As some of the more avid/observant/down right obsessed of you might have noticed I've added a Fabrik 2 beta 2 release to the downloads section.

This release addresses a lot of the bugs that have been reported since the first beta was released. I would really like to thank all the community that spent time testing and reporting these issues back to us, your feedback has been invaluable!

Form paginating can be a powerful way to split long forms into smaller sections, making what might have been a daunting and off-putting process more user friendly. This feature has been lacking in Fabrik, well there were hacks to get it working, but they tended to be difficult to implement and prone to error. As of today, in Fabrik 2.0's SVN, there is a simple way to create form's that span over multiple pages.

After having moved the forums over to VBulletin a couple of weeks ago, its now the turn of the main site to get a face lift. The Homepage has been redesigned in a more effective structure. After the top menu you have a couple of calls to action, downloading the latest stable version of Fabrik and subscribing. The next five columns aim to give new visitors a better understanding of what Fabrik can do, along with links through to a entirely new features section.
