Blank Page on Blog Post Create

Had this working before but might have got broken after an update as not used for a while.

Either editing an existing page or creating new goes to a blank page on save.

This is is error log: Call to a member function return_instance() on a non-object in /var/www/vhosts/stratfordhousedentalpractice.co.uk/httpdocs/admin/core/lib/api/PerchAPI_Form.class.php on line 415, referer: http://www.stratfordhousedentalpractice.co.uk/admin/addons/apps/perch_blog/edit/

Blog is out of date. You need to update your apps when you update Perch.

Turns out the issue was due to incomplete upload of the core folder, I used a different FTP software to transfer the files again. But I also updated the Blog app anyway!

The latest version of Perch requires the new Blog app as we made changes for Blocks.

Thats fine as updated anyway, but I think the main issue was a bad transfer.

Maybe I missed it but if not maybe perch update releases that require app updates as well should say so in the update notes?
