The Joomla! Extensions Directory ™


I tried this extensions because it's one of the only two document managers for Joomla 3.0 that are free. Here it says it's Joomla 3.0 compatible, but on their own site it only states Joomla 1.5,1.6,1.7 and 2.5 compatibility. After downloading the manifest file shows it's a manifest for 1.5. My joomla extension manager says there is no valid XML setup file, so I figure this is not working.

I understand your problem and sorry if we lost time. I was just a publication error.
Our component will be soon avalaible for Joomla 3, but not yet.
Best regards

The component is easy to use once you get the hang of it and everything can be customized.

I use it on most sites I make.

However, installing this component somehow breaks the functioning of the ZOO component. Disabling Fabrik brings back the functionality of ZOO. I don't know on which end this fault lies but it could have to do with the new custom elements in J1.6+.

This doesn't change the fact that Fabrik is an amazing (especially for its price) Extension.
This Component is very good, works nicely with the native Contact component and has a very decent template. One thing that concerns me though is that it inserts invisible links (namely "chateauneuf", "Fay aux loges" and "Canal d Orléans") via the contactmap.php file, rule 159, function getRef($id) (which cannot be changed by the template files). This is not good practice or fair to the users. They should at least have the decency to make these links publicly visible and give the user an option to turn them off.

These link are deleted from the 4.5 version.
