work around for write panels (2 posts)

    So Magic Fields 2 doesn't have "write panels." and since MF2 is so sleek - I am thinking there is some other thing that takes it's place that I can't find.

    problem is this: creating a simple page with some fields in it.

    in MF1//

    1. create some m-Fields
    2. create a page
    3. fill out the fields on the page
    4. select the fields that i want as a write panel.
    5. echo them out on the page

    STRUCTURE: page>fields

    in MF2//

    1. create a page template
    2. create a page
    3. assign the template to the page
    4. create a custom post type
    5. create the fields for that post type
    6. create a post
    7. fill in all the fields
    8. run a loop in the page for the post type (for 1 post)
    9. echo out the m-Fields data

    STRUCTURE: page>post>>loop>fields

    so a client would have to select the post type "about" then go in there and get(the only post in there) "about" then adjust the fields... meanwhile the page "about" is never touched... seems really strange...

    or --- you could put ALL of the magic-fields on "page" - which in my case would mean that there would be 100 plus fields on evey page and 90 of them wouldn't have to do with that page and then couldn't be required --- which is all way too confusing for clients.

    ANY BODY KNOW AN ANSWER ?

    I feel like i'm just not checking a special box somewhere.

    but maybe they just removed the best part of their plugin ?

    thanks. -derek

    i found this github.com/magic-fields-team/Magic-Fields-2/issues/5

    but i still think there is a way to do what I need... without having to make 3 things where I used to make 1.
