    Actually another seven or so days and I will be out of here having transferred all my unused licenses and I will have completed a migration of all my remaining sites to Expressionengine. That will have included the transfer of over 300 blog posts across…

    Absolutely. It's astonishing that so many have held on for so long. Goes to show how much people want/wanted Perch to work.

    The thread going a bit off the rails isn't the community's fault.

    If you think it’s bad here you should check out the Slack channel.

    yes this thread is about Perch’s future that’s why people are discussing alternatives precisely because many believe it does not have one or at least a viable one despite all the…

    I am sorry your so easily offended others seem to find it worth discussing.

    there really is a lot more important things in the world to be “ offended “ by than a discussion on viable alternatives to a failing CMS. Lastly I believe I just responded…

    expressionengine has been around longer than perch I believe, it started as pmachine and went at one point "enterprise" at over $299 a license (this was a good few years ago). It was sold to one of its major plugin developers a while after that who made…

    Yes thank you but as there is really not much Perch to talk about at least it keeps the conversation going. Plus discussing alternatives given the situation could be construed as Perch related.

    You probably will not need support, the slack and stack exchange channels will sort most things out. I paid for one month recently when our server config was blocking updates and no one could work out why.. they fixed it in one day but thats the only…

    honestly never used Kirby, I went straight back to EE as soon as they open sourced it. Compared to Statamic which is I believe similar to Kirby and which I have used it’s far more powerful and user friendly.

    TheOldDesigner Just watched the primer video. Like it. Some of the process is a lot like Perch. Take your HTML and replace with EE tags. Will have a play when I have a spare hour or two.

    @CliveWalker there is also a thriving Slack Community and a dedicated stack exchange as well. Their are some powerful plugins like “Structure” and “Bloqs” which are worth checking out

    thank you for the lesson on how to run my business. Actually yes I am annoyed and occasionally I reused licenses as was allowed at the time. Why I bought the licenses is irrelevant someone is looking to buy them in bulk so maybe you…

    How can a product which obviously is rudderless and with no communication be a good option?
