• 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.

Filter menu list with Joomla Users Extra Fields



Usually, when I want to filter records, by user, on a menu list, I use to use the object: {$my->id}.

Something like this:

Now, as you might now, Joomla has the ability to create extra fields for users. I've created an extra field named keyid and it available to fill, on user creation.


So, do you know if there's a way for the Pre-filter to access this new object, in order to filter the list on the menu?

I've tried with:


But with no avail.

Anyone have used this before?

Thanks in advance.
Assuming you have a "field_value" element in your Fabrik list you should be able to pre-filter by a query. Something like:

Elements: "field_value"
Condition: Equals
Value: SELECT value FROM #__field_values WHERE field_id = 'your-field-id' AND item_id = '{$my->id}' - (Replace "your-field-id" with your custom field's actual id)
Type: Query

This is not tested in any way, so you might need to adjust.
We are in need of some funding.
More details.

Thank you.
