In this issue, I've highlighted some pages from the Perch Docs (now open-sourced on GitHub) which have been improved recently. Many thanks to Hussein Al Hammad for his work on these.
There's also a new update for the Pipit Members app and a forum post where lead developer Drew M is asking for Perch site examples. I've included one of the sites, HFH Healtcare, here as well; it uses a Form Builder app to allow users to build Perch forms. Nice work.
Finally, a great post that illustrates the benefits of a component approach in your front-end work.
See you next time.

In The Docs - New and Improved
There have been lots of improvements and additions to Perch documentation recently including this page about Perch templates.
The else Attribute
How to use the
else attribute without using
<perch:if></perch:if> tags. Really useful for specifying a default image, for example.
The no-index Attribute
no-index attribute tells Perch not to index a field. In general, any field that is not needed for sorting or filtering does not need to be indexed. The attribute works for content regions and collections.
Uses Runway with Blog, Forms, Collections and my app Form Builder, to enable the client to easily create Perch forms themselves.
