    I found out the problem. I had named the template file in small case but in calling the template name I had it as a Capital letter. Took the capital away and the content is now displaying on the site.

    Perch is working better since the 3.1.7 update.

    I have an ongoing issue with running a Service Worker, bringing the Perch Login to an unfound page but all in all the update has improved performance.

    I think most of us would support a change if it meant Perch would survive or even thrive.

    Something like Craft's licencing which Includes one year of updates and $59/year for updates after that?


    Either way, the update and the

    Up next, I'm looking at putting some of the add-ons into GitHub. That's not always as straightforward as you think, as I need to check the licensing for any dependancies etc. But my intention is to begin with Blog.

    Hi Drew,

    I think the community will appreciate the update and what sounds like more updates to come. However I think what is required more than anything else is a more open/honest channel of communication as to the state of play regarding perch. This…

    I've just put out a 3.1.7 release fixing what I hope is the last of any PHP 7.4 compatibility issues that have been reported. I've also addressed an issue for MySQL 8.0.4 and up that was flagged.

    It really is a shame. I’ve been using perch since around 2012 maybe... both for sites working for previous employers, personal sites and more recently for my own freelance clients. It’s been an easy recommendation. Initially because the first hand…

    Vapid looks interesting. I haven't tried it yet but it seems fairly close to Perch's approach. Also interesting that it's open source with a small group of contributors. That would be a better model for Perch than the current astonishing levels of…
