Magic Fields 1.1 was released

In these release we continue focus in make Magic Fields more stable and lightweight.

Files like prototype,jquery and jquery.ui.core.js already exists in wordpress and was removed of the magic fields.

We started to take in account the performance in the frontend and was reduced the queries in a 30% when is called any custom field value. this is not enough but is a start.

Now the datepicker used in the date custom field is the jquery’s date picker, in this way we use the jquery, jquery-ui to already has wordpress and was removed ~700 lines of code with this change.

Was added a feature for the functions used in the frontend (get,get_image and get_audio) for we can used it outside of the loop.

    Er.. yes, of course.. that’s stupid of me. Thank you (I would hate losing time this way, sorry). Let’s attribute it to the quick -and uncorrect- reading of english (by the way, if you’re interested in a french traduction, I can give it a try, just let me know of the language files).

    I don’t seem to be able to do any EIP (edit-in-place) for the image fields, only the text fields. How do I make this happen? Thanks.

  5. hunk says:

    Hi TTB edit in place only is for textbox and multi-textbox. for the moment.

    This is total non-sense….Why not help and make flutter better, then making a new project again!?!?!?

    thats what open-source is about….get over your ego…and make flutter better!!!! Get in touch with the flutter guys!

    just my two cents

    Hi Florian.

    in fact we were part of the flutter’s team.

    But this is not about ego this is about to we want take a different direction for the plugin.

    If we tried to help flutter for any change we will need pass through a discuss with the owner and we think to this will stop the development instead of improve it.

    So now, we don’t want be “better than flutter” we just want take another path for the plugin, in our last release we added a new features, and certainly flutter will add another differents features, in some point Magic Fields will be a completely different project of flutter.

    I hope you understand this is not a battle for know who is better.

    We just want add the features to we think be the best for the plugin.

    well, then I wish you all the best on this project.

    I indeed love Flutter…so no pun was indented…

    keep it up!
