Just to flag up a small bug.
When 'Hide Perch Branding' is ticked and no client logo has been uploaded , the Perch logo still shows on the Login page.
Thanks Clive, that's a possibility. Though it might be sensible to find out more about any Perch 4 plans, incase there are any changes in architecture.
Unfortunately it isn't quite Perch 3 ready. I get an error when viewing the comments Admin page:
The UI looks a bit broken too of course, as Perch 3 styling/layout is quite different.
Unfortunately I don't have the expertise to bring the App up to Perch 3.
It is a shame, as it would have been the solution for my situation.
No probs. Thanks for pointing out the App. I will check it out.
Well, I'll be. Thank you. That might do it. I thought that was only for Blog.
It's only listed in the Perch 2 Addons list. I wonder if it works in Perch 3. Have you used it Clive?
Has anyone created a method of using a Form to allow visitors to submit info into a collection (or list and detail)?
It would need to be approved first of course.
Use case is for a type of Visitor Guestbook with ability to upload images.
Uses Runway. Uses Collections for news posts.
Pages were constructed in the Perch editor, using a template that combines Blocks and Repeaters to enable the editor to create page layouts with sections and columns, with a 'Super Repeater' I made with some simple JS that allows you to chose the type of content to put in a column.
Uses Runway, with apps: Blog, Forms, Collections and my app Form Builder, to enable the client to easily create Perch forms themselves.
It seems we are stuck. I worry that PHP7.4 compatibility issues will force us away from this CMS and cost a lot of development time to migrate to a CMS that work with newer versions of PHP.
I have over 40 Perch sites that would need to be re-purposed.
Thanks, will check that out.
Nice one Chris.
In the Form responses, Perch helpfully shows the 'path' of the form.
Is it possible to show this in the submission email too?
Very much appreciated, thank you.
I ended up putting the load function style stuff in perch/plugins/ui to keep it tidy.
How can we add more style options in Redactor under the Formatting dropdown as described on this page: https://imperavi.com/redactor/…ting/add-formatting-tags/
I'm not referring to adding buttons eg. bold, underline, etc. I'd like to add <small> to the formatting list.
That works perfectly. Thanks very very much.
Thanks for this.
Just a tip for everyone... if you have a 'dark' themed site, you can switch to 'dark' captcha by adding
to the form code, eg:
You can also add this too
if you're tight for space.
My question is:
If users forget to click the captcha V2 box, they silently fail and see the success message, yet get added to spam.
How could we disable the submit button until CAPTCHA is validated, or show an error message if they've forgotten to tick the box?
There is some activity in the docs repo. Pull requests are getting merged.
But it's hard to know what's going on. It could be that we suddenly get version 3.x or 4 even... or nothing. In terms of communication it wouldn't take much. If Perch HQ surfaced a few times a month to say 'we are still working on it'. That would be so helpful.
I agree. The fact that they aren't posting is a real worry, because obvious damage is being done (to brand and tribe) by radio silence.
Drew and Rachel have always played their cards close to their chest, being careful not to promise a delivery date for features for example, which is understandable. But to go so quiet is un characteristic.
I found Drew's post in this thread quite alarming. The tone of it seemed a bit 'I give up'. I do hope they're ok.
Perhaps they are working on selling Perch off and don't feel they can announce anything until the deal is agreed. We can only guess.
What I hope is, is that they've formed a band called Deep Perchple and they are currently on tour having a great time.
