Magic Fields
[resolved] No error for missing required fields. (3 posts)

    On WP 3.9, I just migrated from Flutter to Magic Fields 1.6.2.
    The Custom Write Panel fields appear to be ok. Some fields are required. However when I edit a post that contains the required fields, and leave out a required field, and then Save Draft, there is no error message for the missing required field. Any other entered field values do get saved.

    There is no javascript error.
    Near the top of the page, the message is:
    "Post draft updated."

    I expected to see this message (like Flutter) at the top:
    "Post was not published - You have errors in some fields, please check the fields below.".
    And I expected each required missing field to be highlighted with a message:
    "Error: field can not be empty".

    I do have a workaround. In the Magic Fields javascript file, plugins\magic-fields\js\custom_fields\validate.js, commenting out the showErrors function appears to solve the problem.
