  • Tips for improving the effectiveness of the Fabrik admin interface.

    Compressing the Admin lists​

    If you would like to see more Elements or Groups etc. on your screen in the Fabrik Admin Lists, then with a small tweak to the CSS, some of the white-space between rows can be removed.

    /* Make admin Lists more compact */
    .table th,
    .table td {
    padding: 1px 8px;

    input[type="checkbox"] {
    margin: 0;
    *margin-top: 0;
    margin-top: 1px \9;

    Since we should not be making changes to the template's main css file (because these will be overwritten in a Joomla upgrade), these should ideally be put into a custom.css for your admin template. Thanks to a Joomla user the standard ISIS and Hathor templates now provide this. For earlier versions these templates do call a language-specific css file which you can use to store these changes. So, for example, if your own language is en-GB, then create an en-GB.css file in administrator/language/en-GB.
