Magic fields 1.2 is out and this is our first release with new features.
In this entry we will speak a little about to what is new in this version, we hope to you enjoy this new release
Condense Menu mode.
In our first release a lot of people ask us for add the “condense” feature made by Doc4 (http://bit.ly/8Gy9q) and now this feature is part of the Magic Fields.
And we added a little improvement for this new mode, when the user see the “edit” page while has the “condense menu” mode active will be appear a new column with the name of which write panel belongs the post.
New Functions for get data in the frontend.
One of the weak points of the last version was the performance. For get the values of a Duplicate group was neccesary did a bunch of calls of the “get” function. So in this new version was added new ways to get the data.
get_field_duplicate: When we has a duplicate field with many values now we can get the data in this way:
In this image we has a duplicate field with some values:
And we will get this result:
gen_image: Now is possible create new thumbs of our images dynamically for example if we has a image custom field.
We can do something like this:
Using this code:
Add a new option for hide non-standart content in Post panel.
normally in the edit page in the Post panel appears all the posts created with and without writepanels, with this option we can only display the posts created without write panels.
Sometimes can be confused for the clients knows for what is each custom field in the write panel now we can add a message and this will be appear as a tooltip in our custom field page.
We want say thanks.
