1. Fabrik 3.8.1 has been released. It is mostly bug fixes and feature enhancements, but does include two new plugins (push notifications, and the sequence element). As usual we strongly recommend testing the new release on a sandbox if your application is mission critical, and always do an Akeeba backup before updating.

    Hi I was reading this thread and the wiki http://fabrikar.com/forums/index.php?wiki/common-php-tasks/#update and I believe I have the same issue but wanted to confirm if it was due to code deprecation
    Im using F3.7 and J3.8
    Code (Text):
    // Adds a Attended button for list

    $item = $model->getTable();
    $app = JFactory::getApplication();
    $ids = $app->input->get('ids', array(), 'array');
    $db = FabrikWorker::getDbo();
    $tr_table = $db->quoteName('course_registrants');
    $c_id = $db->quoteName('id');
    $claim_approved = $db->quoteName('claim_approved');
    $timestamp = $db->quoteName('approved_timestamp');
    $date=new DateTime(); //this returns the current date time
    $time = $date->format('d/m/Y');

    foreach ($ids AS $myid)  
        $row = $model->getRow($myid);
        $complete = $row->course_registrants___complete;
        $comp = explode('"',$complete);
        $compV = $comp[1];
        if ($compV == 1) {
          $db =& JFactory::getDBO();  
          $query = "SELECT cr.teacher_email, cr.team_leader_email, cs.full_course_name
                    FROM course_registrants AS cr
                    INNER JOIN courses AS cs
                    ON cr.course = cs.id
                    WHERE cr.id = $myid
          $result = $db->loadObject();
          $tl_email = $result->team_leader_email;
          $headers = "From: $tl_email";
          $email = $result->teacher_email;
          $subject = "Claim Approved";
          $msg = "Your claim has been approved by your Team Leader for course $result->full_course_name.\n
                 Login to to view your claims";
          $q = "UPDATE $tr_table SET $claim_approved = 1, $timestamp = \"$time\" WHERE $c_id = $myid";

    You need F3.8 for J!3.8 (but I don't think this is the problem here).

    As you can see in the thread you mentioned:
    $db =& JFactory::getDBO();
    Should be
    $mydb =JFactory::getDbo();
    (and then $mydb->xyz)

    I will put in the amendments and revert.

    Also instead of just using mail(), which will just use the (very unreliable) built in PHP mail() function, best to use ...

    Code (Text):

    FabrikWorker::sendMail($tl_email, $tl_email, $email, $subject, $msg, true);
    You could replace the second arg with the senders name, if you want.

    The last arg (true) tells the function to send HTML formatted email, you could change that to false.

    By using the sendMail() helper, it'll then go through Joomla's mail API, and you can then set that to use an SMTP relay for reliability.
