Improvements to Blog app post management

As I'm migrating hundreds of posts from WordPress to Perch, a few things have struck me as useful upgrades to the Blog app:

  • The ability to "Save and add another" as you can do in a collection
  • Navigation within the posting page to go the next/previous page as you can do in a collection
  • The ability to choose how many posts you want to appear in the post list. It's very frustrating to always go back to the first page of listings when you're editing post number 168.

Thanks for listening! Tim

Are you using the WordPress importer?

Yes, I did use the importer, but because of the questionable WP HTML, I find that I need to edit many of the posts. The current Blog interface makes that more time consuming than it should be.

Ah right, I see.

I love Perch and I’m a real cheerleader, but every once in a while a client will say the dreaded “when we were in WordPress.” It’s rare, but this is one of those cases.
