We've had a lot of discussions internally and with our users to define a business model that will allow for the stability and growth of Fabrik.
Our goals are to enable as many people to use Fabrik as possible and to give top notch support for our subscribers.
To that effect we are removing documentation (both written and the video tutorials) from our paid subscription offers. These will be made available for free via the wiki (for written documentation) and the site's tutorials section. We realize the videos need a make over, and once the site is live we will be adding videos specific to Fabrik 3.1.
Please note that Fabrik will always be free to download and our source code is available from github.com
We have also altered our pricing structure to reflect the level of support we want to offer:
Existing Bronze users have been migrated to Standard Support, Silver users to professional support.
Joomla has been updated to 2.5 (yes we were still running 1.5 - shame on us). We considered jumping straight to Joomla 3.0 but thought it would be best to do so at a later stage. However we are still using a bootstrap template, and we have updated our Fabrik templates for the downloads and tutorials sections to match.
We are also running Fabrik 3.1 on the site.
The forum has been migrated from the slightly dated vbForum we were using to xenforo.com which is we hope more pleasing on the eye and more usable of mobile devices thanks to a responsive template.
We'd love to hear any feeback about the new site, what works, what could be improved and what we forgot to move over from the old site! Either post in the comments below or on the forum
We're hugely excited to announce that we have released Fabrik 3.0.7 for Joomla 2.5
We strongly advise you to update if you are running earlier versions of Fabrik. Fabrik 3.0.7 is not for Joomla 3+ - for that you will need to use Fabrik 3.1b. Obviously our next focus will be to release a release candidate for Fabrik 3.1b. All of the changes listed here will also be available in Fabrik 3.1rc1
If you have been updating from github then there is no need to update to 3.0.7 - you are already running the code.
So What's new?....
The latest version of Fabrik 3.1 beta is out now, you can get it from the downloads site
This is for both Joomla 2.5 and more importantly for Joomla 3.0. It is an beta release so please be aware that there may be bugs. If you find any issues please report them on the forum. It would be fantastic to get as many people testing this as possible so we can quickly move to a stable release
Here's a taster video of me making an application in Fabrik 3.1
There's a new subscriber video tutorial on the site, informing you how to set up Fabrik's Twitter form plug-in.
As of Fabrik 2.0.3 the Twitter form plug-in uses OAuth to enable users to access their twitter account without needing to supply their user name and password to a 3rd party site.Whilst that is great news for your users, it means the set up of the plug-in is a little more complex than before, so we thought we would document the set up process for you!
The Fabrik team is extremely proud to announce the release of Fabrik 2.0.3 for Joomla 1.5.
This is a major update from 2.0.2 with over 500 commits to the source code in the last 4 months
Please ensure you have read the installation and upgrade instructions in the file INSTALL.txt, found inside the zip
