Magnetic field is made of photons?

"both resources state that all mangetic fields are made of photons"
I couldn't get to the first website. The Wikipedia was confusing as usual, but I didn't see that it said "all magnetic fields are made of photons".
A static magnetic field is not made of photons. EM waves are quantized in packets called photons.
