• 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.

Create your own UserProfile at Fabrik

  • Introduction
    Fabrik Lists can be created in another database than your joomla_database. And in that case the user-details_table from Joomla cannot be joined inFabrik. It sounds for me more secure to keep the database seperate from your Joomla tables, and if you still want to create a userprofile that is also related to {$my-id} there is a method that I would like to share:

    List - UserProfile
    Create a list with any Elements you want including User-element. Add records with ID-numbers from 1 - 9999.
    After this, set Auto-increment to NO and deny ADD records for that list.
    Create a menu: Fabrik - Form
    Set Row-ID = -1

    Now you can go to Fabrik -Elements to create your own User-profile details. If people click on your mennu-link they will see their own detail-view profile and for that you can make a template wherein you can make an EDIT button with the URL of the form-view of the user's profile.

    The Elements that Fabrik provides combined with your own PHP-tamplates give much more Options than for example Community Builber.
