Let me first say how much fun I've been having learning Perch/Runway. I'm planning on using it for a couple upcoming projects that normally would have gone the Wordpress route. Perch looks to be a wonderful alternative. Great job Rachel & Drew!
My question is about modifying templates. When I am experimenting with different options/markup/css in an existing template, the content using the template doesn't update unless I re-save it in Perch. I learned about the
Republish button in another thread which is great. Although, it feels a little heavy-handed to republish ALL the page if I'm just experimenting with a single template. I saw in the documentation that
perch_content_custom() doesn't cache.
So my question is if there's a big issue with creating my regions like this:
perch_content_create('My Region'); perch_content_custom('My Region');
...instead of using
perch_content(). Using the above method, I found I could edit my template and just refresh the browser to see the results. It feels like a better workflow for me. The docs say you can take a performance hit, but as long as I'm not dealing with 1000's of items, I'm wondering of that's an OK technique for creating regions.
