    Installating Fabrik 3.x

    Please note that Joomla 1.7 is no longer supported as of 24th February. Please update to Joomla 2.5.

    Upgrading Fabrik 3.x


    Note:- When you first install Fabrik you are installing a release, for example it may be release 3.0.3. After an update from Github you are beyond that release level, that is to say your files are newer that 3.0.3.

    Once you have updated from Github you do not need to use the upgrade process in the backend of Joomla as effectively that would be installing an older release.

    It is recommended at this stage after installation to use the latest Github updates due to the amount of code changes happening on a daily basis.

    Additional Note:- There may be times when you update from Github and discover you still have the same problem. In some cases you may have to re-apply a setting for the fix to work.

    Example:- If you create a table join and a bug prevents certain parameters from being set then an update won't solve the problem as the table is already joined. For the bux fix to be applied you would have to re-join the tables by breaking the join and re-applying.
