1. If you update to Joomla 3.8.10, please make sure that you either do a full GitHub update of Fabrik, or disable caching for your lists (in the Advanced settings) or turn off Joomla's System Cache setting. A change in Joomla's cache code in 3.8.10 required a fix in Fabrik, which will be rolled in to the next release, but is currently only available in GitHub.

  • The following will implement a jQuery autofade as shown here: http://jsfiddle.net/2DpfP/4/

    • Download jQuery 1.7.1 from here. and place jquery-1.7.1.min.js in your template folder
    • Wrap a div around the jdoc call in your template's index.php:
    PHP:
    <div id="test">
        <jdoc:include type="message" />
    </div>
    • Add this javascript right before </head>:
    Code (Javascript):
    <script type="text/javascript" src="jquery-1.7.1.min.js"></script>
    <script type="text/javascript">
    $(function() {
        $('#test').delay(1000).fadeOut();
    });
    </script>
    There are also several Joomla plugins that can achieve this. I (Sophist) have just implemented JToastr that delivers them like Android Toast messages. Nice!!
