1. Fabrik 3.8.1 has been released. It is mostly bug fixes and feature enhancements, but does include two new plugins (push notifications, and the sequence element). As usual we strongly recommend testing the new release on a sandbox if your application is mission critical, and always do an Akeeba backup before updating.

    i would like to know if is possible
    when the user is filling the element user's name.. and before to save --> check the jomla data base to know if this user name exists or not.. and show some green icon if is free.. or something red.. if the user name already exist..

    which way would be the best??

    thanks in advance!

    You can use the validation "userexists" and enable the AJAX validation in your form.

    Use the 'userexists' validation.

    I don't think it's part of the core install, so you may need to install the download ZIP, or (if you've e ver done a full github update), "discover" and install it in the J! extensions manager.

    In the downloads section of this site, http://fabrikar.com/download

    Or, if you've ever done a full github update, just do a "Discover" in J!'s extension manager and install it from there.
