Inline help attribute not working with perch:blog?


I'm trying to use inline help attribute on perch:blog and it's not showing up in the CMS, any ideas why?

 <perch:blog id="postTitle" type="text" label="Title" size="xl autowidth" order="1" required="true" help="Every post must have a title" />

Also I've noticed chars="95" count="chars" append="..." doesn't appear to be compatible with perch:blog

I think that's just a constraint due to the legacy of how the blog app has changed over time.

Ok. It'd be nice to see it added in a future update.
