  1. 'cascading dropdown' element enhancement

    Testing with: Fabrik 2.0 SVN 1089 - Joomla 1.5.9 - Internet Explorer 7.0.5730.11 - FireFox 3.0.5

    Like radio button element has an option to show 'Element before label', it should better if for 'cascading dropdown' element used as filter upon a table view, you add an option to set the alignment: left or right (now are aligned to the right), for custom template.

    The only code involved is the one that shows the ajax-loader.gif image before or after the watched element:

    function _filterJS()
    in file components\com_fabrik\plugins\element\fabrikcascad ingdropdown\fabrikcascadingdropdown.php

    and file components\com_fabrik\plugins\element\fabrikcascad ingdropdown\fabrikcascadingdropdown.xml for the param

    • more functionality for automating the configuration of elements

      After working on a site using Fabrik that had well over a hundred lists, I found myself really wishing there were more ways to automate element configuration.

      **To the 'Batch Processing' area at the bottom of the Elements view in the Admin, I think the following should be added**
      1. Change Group (move one or more checked elements to another group. filter this group dropdown by the selected form).
      2. Hidden Yes/No (change the value of 'hidden' to 0 or 1 for checked elements. This ought to be applied even if 'Hidden' isn't an option shown in the element plugin…

      • Plugin for Fabrik -> Joomla Articles/Categories/Menus with bulk upload.

        Joomla is all about Articles within Categories. Fabrik does many things Joomla cannot do in its core. However as an 'extension' of Joomla, Fabrik should actually extend Joomla's usefulness, not only complement it. Juser does extend it in terms of users, which is very important and useful. Why not extend Joomla's primary functions: Articles and their categories?

        • BACKEND ADMINISTRATION

          I think fabrik should provide a way to build backend administration similar to native joomla or at lest a little better.
          Is common on a joomla project to have several components like acymailing or the same joomla articles. So is not ok to ask the users to go for frontend administration and backend.
          Alson in a complex web they may be a lot of fabrik views and you want the user only to manage some of them, but if the user has to go to Components->fabrik->tables there is a big chance he/she will mess with other stuff.

          • Run Fabrikar plugins on CSV import

            I have come across situations where I would like to run some additional php code onBeforeStore or onAfterStore importing some CSV data. This would open up fabrik users a whole bunch of possibilities to further automate processes.

            • matrix of elements

              The idea here is have arrays of types (text boxes, radio butons etc.) for which a matrix can be displayed in which columns are represented by subquestion and the same answer options are shown in each row.
              The text of the question can be either a specific question or a description. e.g. To what extent do you agree with the following comments (1=Strongly Agree, 5=Strongly Disagree)...

                • Pre-filter conditions

                  I'd like to add 'conditions' to table pre-filters, in the same way we have conditions on validations. A box to put some PHP, if it returns false, the pre-filter is not applied.

                        • Captcha enhancements

                          I would like to see a couple of enhancements to the captcha element.

                          1 The concept of captcha is such that an explanation (albeit brief) is required rather than (or perhaps as well as) a label. It would be useful if a short text message could be captured in the element configuration screen and then displayed adjacent to the field on the form.

                          2 It would be useful to have a link next to the image so that users who find the current image confusing can generate a replacement image.

                          Regards
                          Phil

                          • Google Maps - different sizes

                            Hello,

                            I am using the Google Maps element in fabrik 2.0.
                            For me, it would be useful to be able to display it in different sizes in the "form view" and "detailed view" (and maybe also for the "table view").
                            I guess this would be a nice option to add to this great tool.

                            Have a nice day,

                            Stephane

                            • Plugin Elements Decimal: Validation+Range

                              - On Decimals you need quite often a valid range of value (f.e. 0,6<myheight<2,5). - Additional idea might be a warning range (height<1,5).
                              - Further "." vs. "," (formatting/reading in local lang but storing as ".").

                                • Copy Group link for option in repeating groups form display

                                  It would be nice if a form that has a repeating group could include a "Copy Group" link in addition to the current "Add Group" and "Delete Group". If a user clicks on the Copy Group link next to one of the repeated groups a new repeat group would be created and use the data to pre-populate it with the same values from the copied group. This would be different than the "Add Group" functionality which creates a new repeat group using the default values of when a new form is loaded.

                                  Some prior discussion about this idea is in…

                                        • Ajaxify GoogleMapViz filters

                                          This would save a lot of time, because the map wouldn`t reload after every filter action.
