We’ve updated Perch with a number of new features and a couple of bug fixes for issues discovered via our support system.
Please back up your site and database before updating, and run the /perch/update script once you have copied the files.
There’s no need to install immediately. You should update when it’s next convenient to do so. There’s lots of new functionality that you can benefit from once you update.
This release fixes the below issues:
E_STRICTPHP error message on strict server configurations
Users experiencing these issues should update as soon as possible.
titleattribute to content tags so items can be named on the edit page
defaultattribute to content tags to set default field value
Plus the following bits of housekeeping:
Editors will note some small additions to the interface, although no basic functionality has changed. The primary differences are the addition of Undo and Save As Draft on the content edit pages. These do not change the existing workflow Editors will be familiar with.
Log into your account and re-download the files. The download has been replaced with the newest version.
Make a back-up of your files and database.
No, really. Make a back-up. There’s always someone who doesn’t and manages to delete the wrong files – don’t let that be you.
Unzip and replace your existing files with the exception of:
plugins– if you have added to this
These contain information specific to your installation and should not be overwritten. There is no need to copy
setup, as you’re already up and running.
/perch/update in your browser.
That’s all you need to do – Perch is now updated.
