1. The latest github version resolves some issues with the Joomla 3.4 update, and so far seems to be working well with 3.4. You must update from github if you have already updated J! to 3.4. If you have not already updated J!, we would suggest waiting until we release Fabrik 3.2.1, after another day or two of testing.

    Hi,

    I'm showing some Virtuemart data and one of the fields is a date field stored as an integer of the int(11) type. When I show this data in a table (unsurprisingly) it displays the date as a number. Is it possible to have this number displayed as normal date?

    Cheers,

    Simon

    Yeah I had this problem before as well.
    Luckily it was for a project using fabrik 2.0a, so all I had to do was createa new element plugin to deal with cconverting the string into a date.
    For 1.0.4 I think you will need to create a custom template and finesse the output with something like

    Code (text):

    <?php echo date('D d M Y', $row->tablename___elementname);?>
     
    I've just posted in this thread an example of how to create a table template:
