Preview button in Blog uses wrong link


When writing a blog post, I see there is now a preview button - great idea.

The problem is that it needs to go to: sitename/myfolder/myfile.php?s=blah

but instead it goes to: sitename/blog/post.php?s=blah

How do I change the path so that the preview works (changing the site folder and file names isn't an option).

Cheers - Mark

Have you set the blog path and slug in the perch admin > settings ?

Hi Simopn

Yes, that's fixed it, many thanks for this.

Incidentally, I notice there is also space to enter the events path but not sure what this does as there's no button for previewing an event.

Thanks again.

Cheers - Mark

It's used in the templates to create a link to the event detail page simply.
