Issues with Blog after a Perch and Blog update, changes not being saved.
Happy New Year!
I am having trouble with the Blog add-in since upgrading a website. The website was on a low 2.x and I've just upgraded it to the latest version of Perch along with the latest versions of the Blog, Gallery and Events addins.
All seems fine except with the blog add-in. I can delete posts but I can't add them. I seem to be able to change some fields and not others. Ie, I can make the changes in the form as an editor or admin but the changes don’t get written to the database and hence not shown on the website. More specifically, with the blog posts, in the ‘Post’ section I don’t seem to be able to change anything and have the changes successfully saved. I can change date and categories in the 'Publishing' section but not the 'Published/draft' status. In the ‘Meta data’ section, I can successfully add a tag but it no longer is displayed in the post form after a 'save'.
The symptoms are the same whether locally using WAMP on Windows 10 or at a staging post on my production server.
I initially adapted my old post.html template but to elimate any issue there, I tried the supplied default post template and the same issue persisted.
I can go direct to the perch2_blog_posts table and make changes and that seems to work fine.
Is there something obvious that might be causing this?
Any help would be gratefully received, obviously let me know if further information would be useful.
