Support » Plugins » [Plugin: Magic Fields] Add New button doesnt work properly

  • I have installed magic fields and have been using it successfully for a while now but I have noticed one problem that id like to fix. I’ve looked for a solution but I cant find any so im hoping someone can help me here.

    When adding a post in wordpress, theres a button saying “Add New” which when clicked, will let you add a new post easily. However when im adding a post with magic fields in a custom write panel, the “Add New” button goes to the standard wordpress add post page.

    However, if i edit the post, the add new button does exactly what I want it to do and it takes me to the add post for the custom field that im in.

    To make more sense, i have made a screenshot showing more details. Heres the screenshot.

    Screenshot Here!

    Any help would be really appreciated and ill even throw over a little donation if anyone can help me.

    Kind Regards,


    P.S – I understand the problem but im not so advanced at php to fix this. Ive tried copying code from edit.php to post-new.php and post.php but it didnt work so i really need someone that will help me with the coding rather than just telling me what the problem is as I already have a slight understanding of the issue, i just cant fix it 🙁

  • Having the exact same problem. Did you find an answer?

    not glad to hear that their is no answer for this yet… but glad to know i’m not the only one. it’s hard to tell a client… “just make sure every time you want to put up a news story – you can’t press ADD NEW – you’ll have to go to news>manage>add new.” really messes up what is supposed to be so CMS about it.

    magic fields 2 was just releases a while back. i think that it addresses the problem by getting rid of custom write panels and changing to custom post type. it seemed to be working like “magic” when i set up adminimize and tested everything… client side UI was perfect. however… when i went to write posts… and pressed update… none of my info stayed in the fields. just goes blank. but i think that it is a problem on my end.

    i recomend you try magic fields 2 for your next NEW project… because it’s not backwards compatible…
