‘Really little’ CMS Perch hits 2.0

'Really little' content management system Perch has just received a major update. According to co-creator Drew McLellan, Perch is "ideally suited [to] when you just need straightforward content management without lots of hassle". He told .net it enables you to make content editable, so you can hand it over to a client "knowing they won't need a lot of training and they won't muck the site up". However, Perch had initially been designed with small websites in mind, and the latest update responds to developer feedback, opening up the CMS to larger projects, but still keeping everything simple.

In the new release, management of pages and navigation, something that was previously an add-on, is integrated directly into Perch. "Combined with a new system of roles and permissions, you can optionally give your client the ability to add new pages, reorganise navigation and content with drag-and-drop and so on," said McLellan. "You can also do things like create groups of users who can only edit certain parts of the site."
