Fabric category button (bug to fix)

Just checked the Fzbric category button and the button isn't working. I highlighted over others near it and the cursor changes/the buttons work. The highlight works on the button but the link does no action.

I checked the HTMl divs from dev mode in my web browser and between Twitch Integration and Mcreator the Fabric link is not available with the /minecraft/mc-mods/fabric part. No idea how the URL there but just thought it was worth pointing out as some users have been uable to use this button recently.

    I can see the status has changed to "shipped", but there aren't any actual changes. What should I do? Also is there any alternate way for tracking?

    I don't think the original issue was even read through, as montous montous stated, we need to be able to filter by modloder, game version, and the category(misc, worlgen, et). The issue that this got merged into reads more like an issue with the curse launcher instead of the website.

    The status has changed to "shipped", but there doesn't seem to be any actual changes, am I missing something?

    Fabric is a modloader. Fabric is not a game version. Modloader and game version need to be two separate filters. For an effective experience in searching mods, it is necessary to be able to filter for modloader and game version at the same time.

    Having to choose between modloader and game version in the same selector is useless. Forge mods for MC version 1.17 won't work if the modloader is Fabric. Fabric mods for version 1.16.5 won't work if the game version is 1.17.

    It is particularly important to be able to sort for modloader because although Fabric, Rift, and standalone mod devs will specify in the description which modloader (if any) is needed, Forge was the king of modloaders for so long that most Forge mod devs simply assume you have it, and don't find it necessary to mention that requirement.

    Like the guests below pointed out. The modloader and version options are combined and doesn't allow enough filtering between Fabric and Forge mods, it only displays the version unless version and modlaoder are separate dropdowns. The Fabric category helped a lot to people to find mods, now that level of help has been removed. I mean why add the Forge category that was around for a while and back track what happen exactly on this? I think some creator find the tagging for it very useful just like Mcreator and other categories.

    The Fabric Category (yes while it is a modloader) was a solution because of the combined version/modloader dropdown in some way. Without the category it is now more harder to select between Forge and Fabric mods with the modloader/versions in the same dropdown. If it's an issue with the space on the webpage it's understandable but we have not gotten any response as to why the modloader/version dropdown are combined. Unlike the Rift option which is only for 1.13/1.13.2 mods and the handful of Forge mods get filtered out. This is not the case for Fabric which applies to 1.14 to 1.18 (yes snapshots just like the other community content that applies to snapshots unlike Forge which doesn't) but for release versions it becomes hard to find mods. Sure exists which is a website designed to help with searching for mods on Curseforge and filters for only Fabric mods or I used to make mod updates MCForum threads for each minecraft version and it took hours, but these are which shows the community wants a bit of expansion on this feature.

    I should add that you guys added the Fabric category in response to our need to sort Fabric mods from Forge mods.

    Yes, the issue is that when you removed the category you also removed the ability for everyone to easily browse through and find Fabric mods on the website. There is now no easy way of doing this.

    Please bring back the fabric category and allow us to separate fabric mods from forge mods when we're searching or browsing mods on the website.

    Hey there - we're not sure we understand the basis and pain of this issue.

    With the added support to Fabric - it is no longer a category, but rather an entire modloader option.
    If there is something that was lost along the way we need more information to better address the issue.
    If you can open a support ticket and add more detail (and potentially screenshots) that would be great, we might be able to send you old client versions to help us with this so we can serve the Fabric community better.

    What is going on with Curseforge? This "idea" was suggested over a week ago now and there is still no fabric handle/filter to sort through, even though it was there before. Curseforge, why do you like making your user's lives more difficult?

    What an absolute joke

    I don't understand. Sure, Fabric isn't as popular as Forge, but I won't ever go back to Forge.

    The Fabric community is... Much nicer to deal with.

    Now Curseforge removed the Fabric category altogether. There's a dropdown but it includes all versions of Minecraft all lumped into one. Can't search for Fabric mods of certain Minecraft builds.

    This sucks! Just sayin...

    The button's code has now been 'removed' for whatever reason. All that was needed is to re-add a URL? It would literally take a few seconds. What is going on? Is there plans to change this we don't know about.

Hold on!
