After having moved the forums over to VBulletin a couple of weeks ago, its now the turn of the main site to get a face lift. The Homepage has been redesigned in a more effective structure. After the top menu you have a couple of calls to action, downloading the latest stable version of Fabrik and subscribing. The next five columns aim to give new visitors a better understanding of what Fabrik can do, along with links through to a entirely new features section.

Smashing magazine has just published a rather large list of creative form examples. Theres some nice ideas in some of the forms, I especially like the idea of using css to show icons inside fields to give a visual prompt to the type of data required.

AS of now Fabrik 2.0.x SVN's connection url has been changed to

This was done to allow us to clearly distingush changes in the 1.0.x and 2.0.x code bases

No unfortunately Hugh and I have not found an all knowing fabrik robot to answer you questions even faster!

Instead - I've installed the smf gravatar plugin .

We've rightly had some complaints from some subscribers about the way in which subscription renewals are taken care off. In this post I will explain what went wrong and what we've done to hopefully fix the problem.

What went wrong?

With the dust slowly settling around the 1.0.4 I thought it would be time to outline where we will be taking Fabrik over the next couple of months.

First of all we will be continuing to fix bugs and add small feature requests to 1.0.4. We feel that 1.0.4 is pretty darn stable, and that it is an ideal solution for people running Joomla 1.0.x sites. So we envisage releasing a 1.0.5, most likely within a shorter time frame that the jump between 1.0.3 and 1.0.4.
