Adding markup to some items in a Multiple Item Region http://www.grabaperch.com/blog/archive/adding-markup-to-some-items-in-a-multiple-item-region http://www.grabaperch.com/blog/archive/adding-markup-to-some-items-in-a-multiple-item-region Sometimes when you are repeating items in a multiple item region you need to insert some markup between every so many items. This pattern happens a lot in the Bootstrap framework, where you need to add row divs around rows of items.

Perch makes this easy to do with perch:before and perch:after with the perch:every tag.
