    Hi Gerasimos.

    Well we create Magic fields for two things:

    Flutter no has any update in the last two months, we thought to this plugin will no be mantained any more.

    We also thought to Flutter need a clean of his code and fix a bunch of issues.

    In this first release for the user is almost the same flutter but if you compare the core in our first version of magic fields we rewrite a lot of things and remove many obsolete files

    Here a little comparision between the lines of code of flutter and Magic fields

    http://pastie.org/599053

    With magic fields we removed 74 obsolete files.

    And was removed 14.5 thousand lines of obsolete code.

    In our nexts release we will continue cleaning the code of Magic Fields, and we will start to add new features.

    Thanks for your comment.

  7. I tried PodsCMS but unfortunately it doesn’t like to WordPress comments and other post-related features. Then I tried Flutter but it had bugs. Magic Fields seems to be the answer! *PLEASE CONTINUE DEVELOPING IT* Can I make a donation towards the development?

  8. Gnuget says:

    Hi Kulpreet,

    We released a new version a few hours ago. if you are interested in make a donation the link for do it, be in the github page (http://github.com/hunk/Magic-Fields/tree) or in the wordpress plugin page. (http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/magic-fields/)

    or if you prefer we need a little work around here, we need a new template for this page, a logo, or help in the development.
