Can't add blog category in Perch 2.7.1

Hi,

Just installed 2.7.1 and am struggling to add blog categories in the admin. I've looked at the videos and it seems different to the 2.7.1 version.

When looged into the admin under "apps" I have "Categories" and "Blog" listed, I've tried adding categories to the Categories app but these do not appear in the sidebar/archive in the blog. Under 'blog" I have a sections section but guess this is not it?

My config/apps.php file is as follows, not sure if it helps. Perhaps an error?

<?php $apps_list = array( 'content', 'perch_categories', 'perch_blog', ); ?>

Help much appreciated....

Regards

Rob

Do you have a category set called 'Blog' listed?

Hi Drew,

Where should I look for that? I can't see one on the screen in the side bar, just archive.

Cheers

Click on the Categories app. It lists your category sets. Is there one called Blog?

If not, add a new category set. Call it Blog.

Hi Drew,

No nothing there so I've created a new Category set as follows.

Set-template = set

Cat-template = category

I still can't see any categories and when I open a post where it says "Categories" there's no drop down list or option to choose a category?

Help appreciated....

Did you add some categories to the new set?

Thanks for your high levels of patience! That just about sums up the last few days for me, not paying attention.

Thanks a lot Drew.

Cheers
