Blocks on different parts of a blog post

Hi, I would like to let my client add same blocks on different parts of my blog's post.html

<div id="details" class="tab-content">
        <perch:blocks divider-before="Details">
            <perch:template path="blog/viaje-blocks.html" />
        </perch:blocks>
</div>

<div id="description" class="tab-content">
        <perch:blocks divider-before="Description">
            <perch:template path="blog/viaje-blocks.html" />
        </perch:blocks>
</div>

How can I do that?

Thanks!

You can only have one set of blocks per template.

Not good news. Now I have to change clients full site structure… Please on future version would be really powerful to have multiple blocks.

Is there any other way to let my client drag-reorder blog post regions?

I have not tried this on a blog post but you can for sure do this on a normal page. I have this set up on a master pager that has a region for the main content and for a sidebar. Both regions use the same template that consists of many block types.

So the user is able to add the same block type in both regions.

Raul - this has always been the case for blocks, and it's in the documentation.

Drew, I misunderstand. — I also believe multiple blocks would be a superfeature.

Shawn, thanks for your help, but blog posts do not accept regions
