    Looking for content template input tag required just for time, that outputs in format hours:minutes:seconds e.g. 12:32:55

    This is for recording the time taken to complete an event so 'time' must not change with locale or go 12 or 24 hour format!

    My template tag below does not work - suggestions please for correct format

    <perch:content id="ttrecord_time" type="time" label="Time" format="h:i:s" />

    There may be a number of records and would need to be able to sort low to high

    Many thanks for any help. TGIF!

    Does anyone have any real experience and recommendations for a paywall service? (that works easily with Perch would be nice!)

    User has a requirement for paywall to provide limited/paid access to restricted content on their site. UK based if that makes a difference.

    Any suggestions gratefully received.

    Good and sad news at the same time.

    Thanks Rachel and Drew. You built a great product! One that, for a complete luddite like me, enabled me to offer a reasonable and easy to use CMS to a lot of clients who are still happy Perch users.

    Best of luck for the future to you both... and we all look forward to seeing what the future holds for us Perchers.

    Using standard Perch, NOT Runway, is there a simple way to import a dataset from spreadsheet/csv file into Perch... content template has 12 fields for a straight list of items, user has maybe 100 items that they would rather not have to input manually.

    Thanks for any guidance.

    user wants to be able to add social media embeds to their site - this comes to them in the form of 'get code' html code. I want them to be able to paste that code into a textarea region in Perch editing. Can't seem to get it to output the html and hence the embedded item does not appear on the output page.

    am I missing something? It's Friday...

    thanks pixelnaut, but I've always found the gallery app to be a PITA to be honest, but that's just my point of view, and it's had no real updates since the year dot. I do still use it of course, just looking for other's experiences of anything else that might work 'better' Yeah, define 'better' I know ;)

    I am looking for examples of image galleries that work well within Perch (not runway)

    I don't use the native perch gallery app. I have used woothemes flexslider on a number of projects and it works well for image galleries with a reasonable number of images, though all have to be added one by one... this is seen by users as a bit of a pain ;)

    I have a user who wants something 'better' for large groups of images, masonry grid display or soemthing similar. Not averse to linking to something outside of Perch so long as linkage can be managed within Perch.

    Any ideas much appreciated!

    Many thanks

    Hi Byron, sorry to keep plundering your brain! last question, honest. So I can get to do most what i need but as the event.php is the only page that actually can display an event detail (because all events in a list point to the single "eventURL" as defined in settings for events) I need something in event.php that uses template event-detail.html for future events and template event-result.html for past events

    so in event.php we currently have









    is there a conditional statement that can go in there to make the selction of templates? thanks for your help as always!

    So the above will show listing of events sorted by future and past

    For an individual event, how to filter to display future or past content?

    current event page









    Thanks Byron, that looks nice and effective. Where would I use that? In the archive.php page? or somewhere else

    <h2>Past events</h2>



    'category' => perch_get('cat'),

    'filter' => 'eventDateTime',

    'match' => 'lt',

    'value' => date('Y-m-d'),

    'sort' => 'eventDateTime',

    'sort-order' => 'desc',

    'template' => 'listing/custom-listing-day.html'



    Hi, using events app archive display - user has list of 'upcoming' and 'past' events. Is it possible that the event detail showing for an event can be different for a 'past' event than that showing when 'upcoming'?

    I ask because we may have an 'upcoming' race event - shows entry details etc. When race is 'past' we would like to show results, not entry details.

    I am guessing this could be done with some clever editing of the event-detail.html template to filter the upcoming and past descriptions

    Any ideas gratefully received, thanks.

    <div class="vevent">

    <h2 class="summary"><perch:events id="eventTitle" /></h2>

    <p class="dtstart"><span class="value-title" title="<perch:events id="eventDateTime" format="l, jS F Y g:i a" />"><perch:events id="eventDateTime" format="%c" /></span></p>

    <div class="description"><perch:events id="eventFutureDescHTML" type="textarea" editor="redactor" encode="false" /></div>

    <div class="description"><perch:events id="eventPastDescHTML" type="textarea" editor="redactor" encode="false" /></div>

    <p class="category"><perch:events id="category_names" encode="false" /></p>

    <perch:if exists="image">

    <img src="<perch:events id="image" type="image" label="Image" width="640" crop="true" />" alt="<perch:events id="eventTitle" />" />
