Perch is Two plus our new Pages app

We launched Perch on May 31st 2009, so Perch is now two years old! We’d like to thank our users for all their support, ideas and enthusiasm for the product over the last two years. Many of the features we have added since launch have suggested by our vibrant community of designers, developers and even end clients. Do keep them coming!

Perch continues to become more powerful while staying nice and simple to use. We’ve added features like drafts, preview and undo, Google maps built right in, and a powerful add-on system. Add-ons for Perch are free, and include things like WYSIWYG editors, a blog, image gallery, events calendar and an app for adding and managing new pages.

The Pages app – allowing users to create new pages from within the Perch interface has been completely revamped for release today. Now included is dynamic navigation and the ability for the designer to specify and existing page to copy the regions from – meaning that the client doesn’t need to select what template to use for each region before adding content to their new page.

This app is a complete rewrite of Pages to add the functionality you asked for yet is free to license owners – as with all our official apps. We hope you like it. You can download the app or watch a video tutorial showing how to install and use the Pages app so you can see how it works before installing it.

    Navigation groups!!!
    Now it’s going to be a lot harder to find a reason to use any other CMS. Can’t wait to try it out.

    Fantastic! The Pages revamp definitely makes Perch more of a contender when considering which CMS to use for a job. Thanks for the video overview too, it really helps in seeing the changes first hand.
