Perch_blog_custom not outputting anything


I'm using the following page code:

    <?php perch_blog_custom(array( 'count'=> 1, 'template' => 'post_in_list_front_page.html', 'category' => 'news', 'sort' => 'postDateTime', 'sort-order' => 'DESC' )); ?>

with the template:

<div class="latest-news">
    <h3>Latest News</h3>
        <a href="/blog/post.php?s=<perch:blog id='postSlug' type='text' />">
            <perch:blog id="postTitle" type="text" />

and my diagnostic report is:

The first thing to do is ensure you are running the latest version of Perch.

If the problem still exists add debug to the page and let us know what it outputs.

Thanks Rachel,

I updated to latest version, then enabled debug after it still isn't outputting any data.

<perch:blog id='postSlug' type='text' />


<perch:blog id="postSlug" type="text" />

Seems that I hadn't update the App structure since 2.7, Namely the post.html file to contain the category select. Thanks for your advice.
