Post types - no select box showing?


I have created a new post type (edit post template for cms) and put this in the blog/post folder

However i do not see a select box on the edit post screen as described in the perch documentation. Can you tell me why this may be?

It should be the first thing you see when creating a New Post. For existing posts, you'll find it under the Meta and Social tab, a bit further down.

I dont see either - what could be going wrong here?

What is the name of your new post type file and can you confirm it's in /perch/templates/blog/posts/ ?


template is called "post_success_stories.html"

it is in "perch_blog/templates/blog/posts" - is that incorrect and i should make a "blog" folder to house this outside of the addon?


I usually put my alternative template in the location that Simon describes. Your location is different, not sure if that's the problem but can you try the other location?

yes that was the issue - perhaps worth adding to the documentation

Thanks a lot
