Perch Blog is giving an "Undefined index: postDateTime" error

Recently, while creating a temple for my new Perch Blog, I've been getting this error:

Notice: Undefined index: postDateTime in....\perch\addons\apps\perch_blog\PerchBlog_Post.class.php on line 92

The editor does not seem to recognize any changes I make to the template, although they are reflected in the blog itself when I refresh the page. How do I go about solving this?

It looks like you're missing the type attribute from your date field, e.g.

<perch:blog id="postDateTime" type="date" label="Publish on" format="d" />

I corrected the instances of postDateTime, but the error did not go away.. To be sure, I removed all instances of it, and the error still appears when I save a post. Also the

<perch:blog id="body" type="textarea" label="Post Body" editor="redactor" html="true" size="xl" />

Is still not showing up..

Does the default post.html work?

I'm not sure, for this project I'm using an MVC framework, and haven't configured the controller for an individual post yet..

However, I used the code from post.html to replace the code in post_in_list.html and it works properly, obviously not formatted correctly, but no errors. So I guess I'll just rebuild my "post_in_list" format, and check it every few steps to pinpoint the problem?

That sounds like a good way forward.
