1. Fabrik 3.7 is now available. This version contains critical security updates, please update as soon as possible. Please remember to backup your site before updating, we also recommend testing your updates on development sites if possible.
  2. We had to restore the site around midday (CST) on Wed 7/26 from a backup approximately 8 hours old. So a few posts in the forums were lost. You may want to check to see if you need to re-post anything.
  3. The release of Fabrik for J! 3.8 is not yet ready. Do not update your sites to J! 3.8 until this notice is removed.

Create a Search Form
  • How to build a search form that will filter the data of a list by the values entered in the form:
    • Create a new form
      • Set "Record in database" = NO (in Form processing)
      • Save (+Save & Close with Content type = Default)
    • Copy over the list's elements you want to use for searching
      • In "Elements" filter for the form/groups belonging to your list
      • Select (checkbox) the elements you want to copy, click "Copy"
      • In "Copy to group" select your searchform group, "Save"
    • In "Elements" filter for your searchform group
      • Edit (unlink) and adapt all elements
        • you can unpublish or trash id and date_time (and empty trash)
        • for all elements you want to use: make sure they are visible to the user and/or have correct default values
        • check validations (e.g. "isunique value" doesn't make sense and will throw a MySQL error)
    • Edit your searchform
    • Create a menu item pointing to your search form
