1. Hugh (cheesegrits) here. Thank you for all the good wishes. My back surgery was a success, post-op recovery is going well, and I'm getting stronger and feeling better every day. I hope to be getting back in the saddle and working support again over the next few days.
  2. IMPORTANT NOTE - we have made some changes in our github branch naming. The 'master' branch no longer exists, and is now called 'joomla25' (which is Fabrik 3.0). The 'joomla3' branch (which is Fabrik 3.2) remains unchanged. We have also removed all the other testing branches which had accuulated over the last few years. I have posted a thread in the Community forum for 3.0 with some more information, feel free to as questions there.

    Hi,

    Is there a way to call a menu from within an article content i.e. use a placeholder or a php code within in article that when executed behaves like if a specific menu has been clicked

    joomla 2.5.4
    fabrik 3.5.x

    Thanks in advance

    Not entirely sure what you want here, but menu items are referenced by their Itemid

    so 'index.php?Itemid=1'

    will load your first menu item

    does that help?

    Hi,

    Thanks Rob for your reply.

    As you know we can call a form from within an article e.g {fabrik view=form id=x}. Is there a similar way for menus?

    I have an custom HTML module containing some PHP coding and I want at the end of this coding to trigger a menu dynamically. Is there a way to do this.

    Yes the link to the menu is 'index.php?Itemid=1' but how to execute it by coding; can we put it in a placeholder?

    Thanks

    what do you mean to trigger a menu dynamically?

    We generally click on a menu title to make it active (to trigger to menu); I want this to happen by coding. When a given code is executed a specific menu become active.
    for example I tried this placeholder but it does not do it
    {fabrik view=menu Itemid=1}

    It is still very unclear what you want to achieve!
    Can you give a detailed example of what you try to do?

    Are you trying to actually open another page from your code? Like, a redirect?

    Hi Hugh

    Yes, but to my understanding redirect cannot be used here?

    Why?
    It's really not clear what you want to do.

    Where is the connection from 'opening a menu link in an article' to fabrik if you are running php code in a custom HTML module? You can "echo" a link with your PHP code.

    Fabrik content plugin ({fabrik...) displays fabrik stuff.
    You may display a form with a redirect or a details view with a link element or a calc element containing a link
