Also, in the post_in_list.html template, what should this now be? <perch:blog id="category_names" />

Installed apps: content (2.8.7), assets (2.8.7), categories (2.8.7), perch_blog (4.6), perch_events (1.9.2), perch_forms (1.8.3)

<perch:categories id="categories" set="blog">

<?php perch_blog_post_categories(perch_get('s')); ?>
