  • Update & Changlog URL Fixer

    At the present time the update site URL for Fabrik is incorrect in all installations up to and including 4.1. This will be corrected in 4.2, however, if you wish to update Fabrik via the J! Updater you can download and install this plugin.

    This file is installed just like any other extension through the J! Extension Installation panel. It will not however actually install anything. Its sole purpose is to fix the Update Site and Changlog URL's. Once done it will simply exit.

    As always, we recommend you perform a site backup priot to installation.

Joining to view


When joining to a view this message "COM_FABRIK_LIST_JOIN_NO_PK_USED_ID" is shown. However this shows in the front-end now as well. Which it didn't use to do.

It there a way to suppress it?

What is your exact setup?
Joining from ... to...
Which columns are in your view?
Do you have a list pointing to this view?

The language text should show
COM_FABRIK_LIST_JOIN_NO_PK_USED_ID="A join or list has been added which has no Primary Key (PK). Most likely cause is you are creating a new List on a MySQL view, or a join element joining to a MySQL view. Views don't have PKs, but as we found a field called 'id' we are assuming this is the PK. If this is the PK, you can ignore this message. If not, if you are creating a list you should manually designate the PK in the list settings now, in the 'Data' tab. If you are adding a join element, you should create a Fabrik List based on the view you are joining to, in order to specify which element to use as the PK, then edit and save the join element again"

I can see such a message in the backend (with the substituted text) if saving the list with such a join the 1st time. But not in the frontend.

Sorry for not documenting better. I just wanted to put a feeler out there to see if someone else has the same issue. I did run it down last night and this is what I found.
- I do not have a list pointing to that View, I did see that code as well and I tried that. When setting up a list to the existing view (i.e. pick existing table or view from my second database connection) I did notice the elements are not created automatically anymore. That maybe another issue to investigate some day.
- Not sure why I got the label instead of the text, didnt look into it since I was trying to make it go away.

Anyway long story short, V3 seem to to do the same thing and gives that warning in the Front-end. In V3 I had setup a list without a group for that view in it, for performance reasons and to suppress the warning.

In V4 the issue was when having ; 2 lists with the same name and when using SEF, it was opening the wrong list, even though the menu indicate the correct form number. The link ended up as "/index.php/devices-expert/list/15"

I made it go away by renaming the list and after that the router confusion was gone. An even by renaming the form back just now, I cannot reproduce it anymore, looks like something got corrected in the DB.
