We've just released an alpha version of a Fabrik search mambot.

The search mambot enables Joomla's default search to access any database table that is associated to a Fabrik table. Any matching row is returned as long as the user has sufficient writes to view the table and that given record.

As many of you are aware the old Joomla forge is being replace with a new site called JoomlaCode.org

We have a new project page set up http://joomlacode.org/gf/project/fabrik/ which currently contains all the latest Fabrik 1.0.3 releases (component, upgrade, modules and mambots)

SVN access should also be available, we've got the two versions up (1.0.x and 2.0.x) Please note that 2.0.x is in alpha mode so may or may not work.

Fabrik 1.0.3 has just been released version 1.0.3! This release is focused on bug fixes and general stability of the code base. However, we have managed to add in the following features:

  • Choose between the default email template or custom Html templates
  • Two new template themes (for forms & tables) called mint and bluesky
  • Tables - option to show "view" link which points to read only version of record.
  • Admin table view - option to use or not user prefiltres
  • Publish/ unpublish groups from your forms
  • Class names applied to any element label with a validation attached. This allows you to style your validation rules (see example fabrik form here)

Below is the test suite I'm working through for the release of fabrik 1.0.3

As there are a couple of us using it we're using Zoho writer to collaberate on this document.

The document is live so as we update it, it should be updated here


IMPORTANT NOTE - the Fabrik SVN repository has moved from JoomlaCode.org to Unfuddle.com, as of Rev 372, 11/6/2007. If you already have a checked-out version from JoomlaCode, you will need to delete it and check-out a new copy from Unfuddle. Please find the new URL and username/password below.

PLEASE read all of this document before using SVN.

First of all let me say how excited I've been during the couple of weeks getting to know all the people out there using Fabrik, and giving such great feed back.

We've released Fabrik 1.0.2 (along with a patch to upgrade from previous versions) on the forge for download. This is purely a bug fix release, and I recommend upgrading.
