Deleting the first block appears to delete all blocks

I've set up some layout options using blocks in blog. If a post has been published using two or more block and then subsequently the first block is deleted and the post republished all blocks are lost. is this a bug or have I done something wrong?

This should be fixed now in 2.8.8.

Brilliant, many thanks I'll give it a go.

Hi Drew just updated to 2.8.8 and got the following errors…

The following error occurred: DROP INDEX idx_uni ON perch2_resource_log SQLSTATE[42S02]: Base table or view not found: 1146 Table 'cl43-minerva.perch2_resource_log' doesn't exist

The following error occurred: ALTER IGNORE TABLE perch2_resource_log ADD UNIQUE INDEX idx_uni (appID, itemFK, itemRowID, resourceID) SQLSTATE[42S02]: Base table or view not found: 1146 Table 'cl43-minerva.perch2_resource_log' doesn't exist

Not sure how to rectify.

Is this related to the above issue, or something completely new?

Its related to the above. I've only just updated the site this morning to check out the fix.

Yep. all looks OK. what was the problem?

You had a missing table, but Perch fixed it.

Fab. That's what makes it so great to use + the awesome support of course!
