Renaming multiple instances of blog app in perch admin

Hi all,

I've just set up a new install of Perch 2.5.2 on my local machine and want to run multiple instances of the blog app, one for a news feed and one for a special offers (they'll be styled on different templates).

Installing 2 versions of the blog app worked fine in that I just renamed the folder of the second version to perch_specialoffers before placing it into the addons folder. However in the admin both blogs are named 'Blog' in the Apps menu - how do I change the names of these to avoid confusion for the client? One will be 'News' and the other 'Special Offers'?

I couldn't find any info in the docs or forums about this but heard on the podcast a while back that multiple versions of blog app is now possible.

Thanks all in advance.

Running multiple instances of apps is not supported.

Were you thinking of Sections?

Aha! Thanks Drew, must have got my wires crossed. I'll investigate sections as a possible solution so. Cheers, Adam
