2.8.13 perch_pages_title() returns same title after PerchSystem::set_page

Can't make heads or tails of this one. Updated from Perch 2.6 to 2.8.13 on a single page site that makes extensive use of PerchSystem::set_page() and perch_pages_title(). Pre-update the page titles were returned/displayed as expected. Post-update the perch_pages_title() calls all return/display the same page title. Page regions display as expected, as set by the set_page() function.

The page title returned was the first page in Perch at the time of update. Changing the page order doesn't affect which is the one page title returned. Tried re-saving page options and republishing all the regions.

Probably there is something that needed to be updated along with the rest but I can't figure out what it is.

You've got a really strange value for PERCH_PATH. If you're on a Mac that should be at most a ../ but never .../.

Sorry, I added the ellipses manually to hide my path. Didn't seem like it would matter for this and I felt self-conscious about exposing my folder names/structure.

So this happened somewhere between 2.6 and 2.8.13?

Yes, not sure of the 2.6.x version, but it was a one-shot upgrade to 2.8.13.

Ok, thanks, we'll take a look into it.

Great, thanks.

It seems that the first PerchSystem::set_page() call is indelibly setting the page as far as perch_pages_title() calls go. Looks like PerchSystem::get_page_object() is returning that first page set, even if another PerchSystem::set_page() call has been issued for a different page. Not sure if that is helpful for the investigation.

I think the changes probably came in with Perch 2.7

Just raised the same issue as hadn't seen this, was there any closure on this? Is it a bug? Is there a fix planned / workaround?
