• 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.

Crob Job Stop Working


Hi I had no idea what happen my crob job suddenly stop working.

I had check, my System - Fabrik Scheduled Tasks is enabled.

I had also enable require query string to yes


In my crob job I had enter the url as https://mysitename.com/index.php?fabrik_cron=1

If I manually select job and click run it will run but not when I trigger the url

Is there anything else I can check to get it working

I am using Fabrik 3.0.x and joomla 3.5.1

In the fabrikcron.php ;

from line 185 to 189 ;

->select("id, plugin, lastrun, unit, frequency, " . $nextRun . " AS nextrun")
->where("published = '1'")
->where("$nextRun < '" . JFactory::getDate()->toSql() . "'");

there is a double where in the query statement is this a syntax error ?
No, it's like an AND.
What is your exact Fabrik version?
With which Fabrik and Joomla version was it running?

What are you doing in your php code?
(e.g. J!3.5.1 now is VERY strict about email settings)
Fabrik 3.4.3 I did an update last Friday from Git
Joomla 3.5.1
The strange thing is the cron job will only run if I change the 2nd where to and.

I check this file because my cron job is not running :(
I think I found the reason why it is not working my Server Time Zone was set to Singapore time and not Universal Time after I switch to Universal Time it start working again.

Is there anyway to accommodate user setting ?
Ah yes, there's a bug in the timezone handling if you are editing your cron job in the backend.

Set your Joomla time zone back to Singapure.
But every time you are editing your cron job you must also edit the "Last run" and subtract the timezone offset
If it's showing 2:00 in the cron list view it will show 10:00 inside the cron job (assuming Singapore is UTC+8?) and you have to change it back to 2:00 before saving.
We are in need of some funding.
More details.

Thank you.
