Why does my Perch admin panel look different to the preview one?


We've set-up our first Perch site but the admin panel looks completely different to the preview one on the Perch website.

Here's what mine looks like - http://oi68.tinypic.com/317b4v7.jpg

Why does it look like this and how can I get it to look more like - https://grabaperch.com/perch/resources/tshirt.png

Isn't that version 1?

Oh.. Have I uploaded an old version? Is it the ZIP file downloaded from Perch?

That's definitely version 1. I've seen it recently a couple of times, converting old sites for new customers who've come to us.

Yes that's Perch 1.

You should download Perch from your account, if you have a Perch 2 license then you will have access to Perch 2 files. If you also have older Perch 1 licenses then you will also have the Perch 1 files available.
