Support » Plugin: Magic Fields 2 » [Plugin: Magic Fields 2] 'Insert into Post' changes to 'Insert into field'

  • Hi. I discovered this plugin before Christmas and had a little play with it, and was quite excited.

    However, I’ve noticed today that when inserting an image into a post via the Media dialogue box, the ‘Insert into Post’ button has disappeared, and has been replaced with ‘Insert into field’, making it impossible to add the images.

    I deactivated all plugins except Magic Fields 2, but the problem persists.

    I have a couple of screenshots, but don’t know how to insert them into the forum.

  • I have the same issue… and noticed it a while ago. I was hoping it would be fixed by now. Any update on this?

    Many thanks.

    My fix:
    (Not totally tested, but it will probably get you quite a bit along the way)

    1. create a copy of mf_admin.js called mf_media.js
      1. in mf_media.js keep only the load_link_in_media_upload function and the jQuery function after //load button for image media
      2. in mf_admin.js get rid of these to pieces of code
    2. in main.php add the following lines of code after line 193
      if( isset($_GET['mf_action']) && $_GET['mf_action'] == 'media_upload' ) {
            	wp_enqueue_script( 'mf_media',MF_BASENAME.'js/mf_media.js', array( 'jquery.validate', 'jquery.metadata', 'jquery' ) );
    3. in image_media_field.php change line 111 to $link = sprintf('media-upload.php?post_id=0&type=image&mf_action=media_upload&TB_iframe=1');

    A quick explanation of what is going on.

    For whatever reason MagicFields-2 was loading its js on all admin pages, so when you load the media uploader it modifies the Insert button with jQuery.

    By changing image_media_field.php you add an mf_action to the get string when MagicFields calls the media uploader.

    By changing main.php you enqueue the javascript (mf_media.js now) that changes the upload form only if the
    the mf_action=media_upload is set.
