• 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.

Imagick lib does not work with F4?

Not open for further replies.


My Fabrik3 fileupload elements used to work with Imagick library but i had to change them all to GD to make them work in Fabrik4. I am not sure it is related to php version though. My Fabrik 3 site was running with php7.4 and Fabrik4 site with php 8.1.
No idea, I think this is outside Fabrik.
And if it's working with GD...

Out of interest:
Does it show Imagick in the fileupload lib selection?
What did not work in F4? Error messages? JS errors?
I manage my server also so i install the necessary php imagick libs always myself and yes Imagick is listed as an option in fileupload. Joomla system error message (500 system error) is displayed only. no JS errors.
By the way, already uploaded files do work. If i try to upload a new one and click submit button then the error shows.
The following is the error dsiplayed.

HTTP 500 Whoops, looks like something went wrong.
