• 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.

Timeline visualization

  • The timeline visualization plots records on a timeline (like a Gantt Chart). The top bar is a zoomed in view of the timeline, whilst the bottom bar is a zoomed out view of the timeline. Scrolling either will scroll the timeline.

    Each event is plotted on the page and can be clicked on to show further information about the event's record.

    Data can be filtered, these settings are taken from the Elements found in the fabrik table's that are used to populate the timeline's data.

    • Table - the fabrik table whose data will be plotted onto the timeline
    • Start date - the element whose data contains the start date information. If selected date Elements don't have 'show time selector' activated then the timeline shows the event spanning the whole day
    • End date - the element whose data contains the end date. If left blank then the event is presumed to last one day (if the start element's time Options are turned off) or to be a moment in time (if the start element's time Options are turned on)
    • Label - The element whose data contains the event label
    • Bubble template - This is the text that appears in a bubble when your users click on an event which has been plotted on the timeline. Use place holders (e.g. {tablename___elementname}) to include data from that event's record.
