Missing Fabrik placeholder data with PhocaPDF

Post by jordan.chang » 06 Mar 2017, 23:43

Hi there,

I have created an article with Fabrik placeholders in it. I have no issue on the website display, works fine.

BUT, when i use PhocaPDF to view the article in PDF the data from the Fabrik Placeholder is missing.

My question, is there any fixes to this or is there an alternative method to display the fabrik data in PDF from an Article.

Any help would be much appreciated

Hi, first of all, I unfortunately don't know Fabrik and don't know how it works.

But in general:
Phoca PDF can display content plugins in PDF Document (so be sure the Fabrik is content plugin)

This needs to be enabled in Options of Phoca PDF
And this is very limited, PDF is not HTML or Javascript, so if the plugin renders some complicated code or uses Javascript too, such cannot be transformed to the PDF doucment, so it needs to be tested first

So if the plugin is not content plugin or it uses some specific methods to render (e.g. including Javascript) then it is possible that the content of this plugin will be not transformed to PDF document.

If you find Phoca extensions useful, please support the project
