    Hi Perch Community!


    I am currently building a site for a local magazine and we would like to have a page with all the previous issues on - all 15 years worth!


    I'm adding the previous issues into a collection so I can also include them around the rest of the site too, specially the latest issue. But for the previous issues page I was wondering if there was a way to dynamically divided up the issues by year using just one perch_collection() rather than having one for each year, and then of course having to remember to add a new one each year.


    So far I have...

    ...etc.


    Many thanks for your help

    Thanks Byron Fitzgerald for your reply.


    I have now got the php working but I still can't seem to pull in the blog post date from Perch. The output I get is "1 Jan 1970" but if I manually include a date it works perfectly....


    pages/home.php...



    layouts/global/time_ago.php...


    templates/blog/home_main_headlines.html...


    Any help to point me in the right direction would be must apricated.

    Hi Everyone.


    I have a news based client / website for which I am using the blog app for and I am wanting to have a more dynamic way of displaying when the post was published.


    You see this method quite a lot on most news sites, for example on BBC News, where instead of displaying the date itself, you display "4 hours ago" or "2 days ago" etc.


    I'm guessing the best way to do it is to write a php script to generate to output and then pass that via PerchSystem::set_var('name', 'value') , but I was just wondering if anyone done this on Perch or would know the best way to achieve this?


    Many thanks

    Hi


    I have added a new master page via FTP, gone to add a new page in Runway but the new Master page isn't listed in the dropdown.


    I have gone into 'Master Pages' to try and kick start the new page but that hasn't worked either.


    As you can see, the FTP is showing the am_project_management directory on the server (which has a .html file within it) but the Master Page dropdown, when trying to add a new page, in Perch isn't picking it up...

    ...any help would be gratefully received.


    Hi drewm


    Sorry for the delay, this new forum doesn't automatically send you an email when someone replies, which is a bit annoying.


    The only thing that <perch:showall> shows with regards to the brand is the brand ID number. As mentioned I can get the brand name to display but not the slug.


    Many thanks

    Hi


    I am trying to output the brand slug on a product page as so...

    Code
    1. <a href="/shop/brands/<perch:shop id="brand" type="shop_brand" output="slug" />"><perch:shop id="brand" type="shop_brand"></a>

    ...the brand name displays perfectly but the brand slug isn't outputting at all...


    Code
    1. <a href="/shop/brands/">SKINADE®</a>


    ...how can I output the brand slug on the product page please?


    Many thanks

    Hi Drew,


    I had updated from v3.1.3 - However no need to worry as my bad, I had forgotten I needed to make an update to the /perch/config/buckets.php file. :whistling:


    All working now

    Hi


    This has only just started to happen so I'm guessing it's a bug since upgrading to 3.1.4?


    When I try to select an asset, it selects it fine, click save and it hasn't saved it. The default grey upload icon appears in the CMS admin and no image is displayed on the website.


    Looking at the source code I get <img src="""


    Diagnostics:


    Template:

    Code
    1. <perch:shop id="image" type="image" label="Main product image" width="1500" height="1500" crop="true" bucket="products" help="NB: Image will be cropped to 1500 x 1500 pixels" suppress="true" divider-before="Product images" order="300">
    2. <perch:shop id="image" type="image" width="750" height="750" crop="true" suppress="true" order="310">
    3. <perch:shop id="image" type="image" width="1200" height="630" crop="true" suppress="true" order="320">
    4. <perch:if exists="image">
    5. <img src="<perch:shop id="image" type="image">" itemprop="image" alt="<perch:shop id="brand" type="shop_brand"> <perch:shop id="title">">
    6. <perch:else/>
    7. <img src="/cms/resources/products/product-image-coming-soon.png" itemprop="image" alt="<perch:shop id="title">" class="noimg">
    8. </perch:if>


    ...as you will see, I use perch:if to display an image coming soon image, which also is not displaying, so it would seem the system knows the image is there but is not saving it?


    Many thanks
