Fabrik gives you the power to create forms and tables that run inside Joomla without requiring knowledge of mySQL and PHP. Then feed your data into Google Maps, Charts or an AJAX based calendar
With Fabrik you can create applications that range in complexity from simple contact forms to complex applications such as a job application site or bug tracking systems.
I would like to start with giving my complements for this component! It is a very nice and complete tool. To make a form the way you want it isn't easy but with some help out of the forum pages... yeah it works!
After installing and setting up my first form I tried to use it. The form shows up quite nice but after filling it out and press the send button... Oeps... An error on line 1036 in fabrik.class.php made the use of the component useless...
Because I couldn't find any solution on the web (also not in the forum), I decided to make the line invisible by putting the line between /* and */ in the php script.
I do not know if this solution will help you out but at my site it works quite well.
It is very expensive and the added value is close to zero! It is hard to believe, but there are only three tutorials yet....
In addition, the registration is recurring....
This is really a tough one!
there are WAY too many bugs and the whole thing is completely insecure and vulnerable to hacking.
i'm having numerous issues in the backend....not able to edit elements-getting blank pages.
no validation expressions work-malicious script insertion vulnerability
no spam protection available-like an open invitation for cialis and porn site emails!
there's good potential here, but the devs really should take this off the shelves and finish working on it before releasing it to the public.
they also need to hire someone to give support here in the forums. they seem to be overwhelmed and not able to respond to support requests and forum posts in a timely fashion.
i'm really disappointed and resent purchasing my subscription to the site/component as i have not seen any return on my investment!
PLEASE seriously consider all these points before you think about using this component on a live site!!!
I have always felt much lack of a component, that helped to users with no competence in programming, like I, to being able to create its own solutions, adapted to your necessities. I think, that is the case of much of the lovers of Joomla.
Rob, force and luck in its development, I am going to make my contribution with the paid subscrición right now.
In good hour!
Excuseme for my poor english.
