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.

Image overrides
  • When a fabrik list or form template loads, it will search your Joomla site for the requested image in the following folders, in the following order:

    1. templates/{Joomla template}/html/com_fabrik/{view}/{fabrik template}/images/
    2. templates/{Joomla template}/html/com_fabrik/{view}/images/
    3. templates/{Joomla template}/html/com_fabrik/images/
    4. components/com_fabrik/views/{view}/tmpl/{fabrik template}/images/
    5. media/com_fabrik/images/
    6. images/
    7. images/stories/
    In the above list:

    • {Joomla template} refers to the name of your current Joomla template e.g. Beez
    • {view} refers to the name of your fabrik view e.g. 'list' or 'form'
    • {fabrik template} refers to the name of the views current template e.g. 'bluesky'
    If the image is found then its path is returned and no futher searches occur.

    This means that images found at location 1 in the list will take precendence over images located at location 7.

    Note 1: File names are case sensitive.
    Note 2: We do not search sub folders. So image located in images/foobar/ will not be matched
