Perch CMS Help

Hi all,

I have successfully implemented the Perch CMS onto my site however, as usual, I have a couple of questions.

The way I am using it is inserting the perch code via an html markup item. Is there a way I can make a text box, with existing text, editable via perch?

Secondly, I am trying to use the CKEditor to style the text etc. however, when I go to edit the text in perch, it does not show the new editor controls. The code, I placed right next to the existing perch code: (<?php perch_content('About');?>)

If anybody could help me it would be much appreciated! :slight_smile:

Thanks,

Seb

If you mean that you want the existing text/content under Perch control then you’ll have to delete the content then add it back in via Perch.

Ah ok. No problem, just thought it may be possible.

I’ve also solved the CKeditor problem just now so thats all working.

Do you know if its possible to generate a drop down menu with perch? So I can let the client add pages which in-turn, add to the menu.

Thanks,

Seb

You need to construct the menu yourself in whatever manner you like (drop-down, fly-out etc.) in the form of a Perch template, then it will be under Perch control. As far as I know there’s no built-in drop-down menu functionality. Once you do that you will still need to manually add menu links for new pages, they aren’t automatically generated when a new page is created, at least I’ve never found a way to do it.

The pages app will auto generate the pages using a template you create and will also auto generate the updates to a menu… I have not tried the pages app yet… that’s the last Perch hurdle I need to try once I get a chance.

There’s a video on there.

Hi BigG,

Thanks.

I’ve managed to set-up a template to create new pages which works great. I’m having trouble calling up the navigation menu on the freeway page.
