I have been playing around with the custom post types in WordPress 3.0, and it seems as though the consensus is that this is going to make the Magic Fields plugin obsolete.
However, there are a few crucial features of Magic Fields that I can’t seem to re-create with Custom Post Types. I’m wondering if I should continue using Magic Fields until there is a simple way to achieve the following functionality using Custom Post Types:
1) Image Upload – Magic Fields allowed you to create an image upload field, where as using just plain Custom Post Types means that you have to tell your client that it’s back to having to type/paste long ugly URLs into a custom field manually
2) Simple duplication of fields – Magic Fields allows non-technical folks to easily duplicate whichever fields they’d like to. Custom Post Types doesn’t seem to have an easy way to do this.
Can anyone recommend whether I should still use Magic Fields? Not sure how to justify the loss of functionality to my clients, unless there’s something I’m missing here.
