• Hello Fabrik Community

    Fabrik is now in the hands of the development team that brought you Fabrik for Joomla 4. We have recently transitioned the Fabrik site over to a new server and are busy trying to clean it up. We have upgraded the site to Joomla 4 and are running the latest version of Fabrik 4. We have also upgraded the Xenforo forum software to the latest version. Many of the widgets you might have been used to on the forum are no longer operational, many abandoned by the developers. We hope to bring back some of the important ones as we have time.

    Exciting times to be sure.

    The Fabrik 4.0 Official release is now available. In addition, the Fabrik codebase is now available in a public repository. See the notices about these in the announcements section

    We wish to shout out a very big Thank You to all of you who have made donations. They have really helped. But we can always use more...wink..wink..

    Also a big Thank You to those of you who have been assisting others in the forum. This takes a very big burden off of us as we work on bugs, the website and the future of Fabrik.

Hello I am testing Fabrik 4.0 Zeta with Joomla 5. I have noticed that the advanced search no longer works in Joomla 4 and with Fabrik 4.0 Epsilon it still worked.
Unfortunately I have not tested Fabrik 4.0 Zeta with Joomla 4 if it works with Joomla 4. What can I do to make the advanced search with Fabrik 4.0 Zeta work again with Joomla 5?

I still have a screen shot of error attached

Greetings Marco

Usually JS errors are the reason for sticky spinner.
Have a look in your browser console.
I checked with the Browser Console and the message is Failed to load resource: the server responded with a status of 500 () see atteched files.

Try if you get more informations in the Network tab, maybe there's an error message
The link shows

(which should also be found in the "Response" tab of the network tab.
This looks J!5 related.
Can you enable J! System debug and try again? This should show the error stack (in the Response tab or if calling the link directly)
Can you try to change line 81 to


in libraries\fabrik\fabrik\fabrik\Document\Renderer\Partial\HeadRenderer.php
Good morning

I have edited line 81

Now it looks like it works correctly

Thanks for the excellent support
