I’m happy to release the latest version of the Meta Box plugin today after more than a month fixing bugs and compatibility problems, including compatibility with premium extensions. We also add some improvements to improve the user experience when using the plugin.
Edit file, image info right in the edit page
This version has a big improvement for media fields where you can edit file and image info right in the edit page when clicking the edit icon. Previously, you were redirected to the edit page in the Media Library, after finishing editing, you have to go back to post and refresh the page to see new info. Now in 4.8.6, you can edit the info without redirecting and that will help you save a lot of time if you have many files or images uploaded.
This version focuses on compatibility and we have fixed issues with old PHP version (PHP 5.2 with autoloading extension disabled), premium extensions (Group and Columns) and other plugins (validation module for non-meta box fields). Now it’s more stable, safer to use the plugin!
We also fixed bugs with date time, color picker, taxonomy advanced and map fields to make them work as expected in some edge-cases. For more info about that, please read the change log at Github.
If you’re using an old version of Meta Box, please update the plugin now. Also let us know on Github if you find any bugs. Thanks!
