After a brief stint of being the elected Joomla! RAD Layer and trying to be developed in tandem with Joomla! (even
though the FOF develoeprs were never given ahead warning of the merge window closing, making this nigh impossible),
FOF is now being developed separately from Joomla!. In order to avoid naming clashes we have changed the prefix of
all FOF classes from
F0F (F-zero-F). Moreover, the installation path changed from
JPATH_LIBRARIES . '/fof' to
JPATH_LIBRARIES . '/f0f' (again: that's f-zero-f). The same
goes for the
FOF_INCLUDED constant which is now called
F0F_INCLUDED (again: that's
f-zero-f). If you want to use this new version please remember to change these instances from
Tips and important notes regarding backwards compatibility:
require_once JPATH_LIBRARIES . '/fof/include.php'; require_once JPATH_LIBRARIES . '/f0f/include.php';at the top of their template overrides to load both versions: FOF 2.2.x (f-oh-f prefix) included in Joomla! 3.2 or later and FOF 2.3.x (f-zero-f prefix). Thanks to our strong backwards compatibility this is bound to work.
FOFModel::getInstanceto get a model object from a class which now extends F0FModel (FOF 2.3.x) it will work, as long as the double require_once is present in their code.
