Although I did find that using the 'file' template, other files apart from image-types can be added to Assets - curious.
I too am having problems with this. A client cannnot upload pdf files into Assets.
On attempting to upload even a small pdf, there is a response -
You don't have permission to access this resource.
Additionally, a 403 Forbidden error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.
The hosting company say that filieinfo is enabled, and I have php version set to 7.0 for Perch version 3.
Glad I came across this, as I have just installed the events addon, but am thinking that making a simple template to display events in table rows would do just fine for what my client asked me to set up.
Thanks, George G for approving this thread and Byron Fitzgerald for that helpful tip - it worked!
I installed my first instance of Perch a few days ago and, being a fan of fast web delivery, was delighted with the results on testing a page I was developing using Perch. I hope to be able to provide some new sites I have lined up over the next few months with this cms. Given how Google's rollout of new algorithms that include page load speed as a ranking factor, planned in may 2021 might affect demand for cms that don't slow sites down, I can foresee products like Perch coming to the fore. Best wishes!
I misunderstood the "try out locally", since my website is on "localhost" and after finding that perch could run on my website, and connecting to the database, I then clicked the link at the foot of the last dialogue box, saying "Licensed for local testing", bought a license key.
Unfortunately, now, having done that, I cannot get anything other, when typing mywebsite.com/perch/ than the same box and I cannot enter my key.
Should I delete all the files, delete the database and start over again? Or is there a simpler way to enter my license key?
Never used Perch before and, thinking I could try Perch CMS on my localhost on a remote server, I ended up buying a licence and then when I tried to login on the server perch folder, I repeatedly saw the message Sorry, your license key isn't valid for this domain. This license key is for local testing only, so can only be used on a non-public domain.
So I cannot see how to enter the licence key.
