Fabrik 3.8.1 has been released. It is mostly bug fixes and feature enhancements, but does include two new plugins (push notifications, and the sequence element). As usual we strongly recommend testing the new release on a sandbox if your application is mission critical, and always do an Akeeba backup before updating.
What is a package? (top)
Fabrik's package feature allows you to create installable components from a collection of your Fabrik forms, lists and visualizations. These components can be installed on any Joomla site which already has Fabrik installed.
Designing a package (top)
First you create your list, forms and visualizations as normal. Then you would go to the add package admin page to design the packages layout.
Create a package (top)Go to components->fabrik->packages and press "new"
A page will appear where you can select lists & forms
Once you are happy with the selection save the package.
Export a package (top)To export the package go to components->fabrik->packages, select the package you want to export and press 'export'
A success message should be shown and the zip file listed ready for download
Installing a package (top)
A Fabrik package is a Joomla component - simply install it as you would any other component. Note you need to have fabrik installed alongside the package component.
Packages can only be deployed to sites with the same Joomla version as the site they were built from.
