    Scrap that it's stopped working again. Worked this morning. Came back this afternoon and nothing. Ugh ;(

    Edit:

    Ok I think I've finally found the issue. If I use a private browsing window (Safari) the promo codes work fine, and if I go into Safari…

    Nope. I was actually just looking for that now! But the official page on the Perch site for it has a link which leads to a 404. https://grabaperch.com/chat I guess I can just download slack and search for it? Or is a private group?

    I seem to have solved it. It is to do with PHP versions. If I drop the PHP version down to 7.3 on the server and create a new promo code, that will work, even if I then bump it up to 7.4 afterwards. But if I edit or create a promo code on 7.4 that…

    Yes, I think you're correct as if I enter some code which doesn't exist on the local site I get the same debug messages as I get on the staging site when I enter a code that does exist. I will have a look at the database in phpmyadmin as you suggest.

    I'm 99% the way there to finishing a decently sized Perch Shop project, with blog, custom posts and a few other things as well. It was a pretty big project for me which I've been working on part-time for well over a year. Now its looking more and more…

    Thanks Byron.

    I'm almost certain that the discount code is set up correctly, as I have the exact same site on my local server and that works as you would expect. How would I go about checking the result from the query?

    On my local site between the…

    Hi guys, I'm hoping someone here can help me.

    I have a Perch Shop install where I've created some promo codes. All work fine on my local version. When I upload the site to a staging area and copy over the database the promo codes no longer work. The…

    Hi Byron. I just followed the instructions here: https://github.com/ryangittings/mbk-forms for the V2 installation so the only Javascript I've added to the page for the reCapatcha is <script src="https://www.google.com/recaptcha/api.js" defer></script>…

    I've done this with Javascript before. All I did was add a data element to each search result item to identify which type it was, eg: data-filter="shop". In my case it was so that I could filter a site-wide search and display either blog posts, articles,…

    I've used the google Recaptcha plugin and while it does work it's not a perfect implementation. The main issue I have with it is the input ID g-recaptcha-response is changed to form1_g-recaptcha-response by Perch. What this means is there's no user…

    Hi Perchers. Quick question.

    Is it possible to use the perch:success and perch:error form tags in the Perch Shop cart? I need to give some feedback in the cart for when a user enters a discount code. At the moment it just either applies the discount,…

    I know this is old but I just ran into this myself so I might as give a solution for anyone else that finds this post. When setting up the discount code for a fixed amount, you also need to enter the same amount in the maximum discount box as well.

    The honeypot field isn't ideal these days and won't stop all spam messages. You are able to add Akismet to Perch forms: https://docs.grabaperch.com/addons/blog/spam/ or with a bit more work, Google Recaptcha: https://github.com/ryangittings/mbk-forms

    I'm sure they are working on an updated version, and yes the company that now manages Perch might be bigger, but that doesn't mean Perch is their only project. From what I gather it's actually a very small company with remote workers - like many…

    We all know this isn't going to happen. At this point it's pretty obvious that they've taken more on than they can handle. They're either unable or unwilling to invest the time and money needed to create a viable product, and in the meantime what little…

    Did you go ahead with this? Which apps aren't PHP8 compatible at the moment?, do you know? We do have until November 2022 until PHP 7.4 becomes unsupported. I've recently developed a Perch site which uses Shop, Blog, Members, Forms…
