1. We suggest you do NOT update to Joomla 3.8.10 until we can resolve an issue it causes with caching in Fabrik. If you do install it, you'll need to disable Joomla's "System Cache" in the global System settings.
  2. Apologies for the recent server outage, a planned migration by our host provider to a new location turned into a bit of a nightmare.

Create a Search Form

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
