Drafts and Preview of Repeating Page Elements


We currently use page template with a repeatable regions to display the detailed tour content on our travel site. We use a perch_content_custom tag with a slug to only display details of one tour at a time.

perch_content_custom('Tours', array(
      'template' => 'tours.html',
      'filter' => 'slug',
      'match' => 'eq',
      'value' => perch_get('s'),
      'count' => 1,

This generally works well, however we'd like to make more use of the 'save as draft' / preview draft options. I think with our version of Perch 2.6 we are only able to save repeatable regions (all tours) as a single draft and preview them all on a single page. Not draft just one repeatable region / tour at a time.

Is there a newer version of Perch or a different page construct (without resorting to using a blog style app) which can be suggested that we transition to which would enable the more granular drafting / previewing of content?

Many thanks in advance

Regards James

Perch Runway Collection items are versionned individually so enable this. In Perch everything in a Region is versionned together. So you could upgrade to Runway and turn your region into a Collection.
