A list of Perch CMS add-ons by third party developers

Posted on by Clive Walker in Perch

I wrote this post a while back. The content can still be relevant but the information I've linked to may not be available.

Update August 2018: I've created a new list of third party apps and add-ons that I will be updating regularly. Anyone can fork the repository and send in a pull request as well.


I have been including Perch CMS add-ons by third party developers in the Perchology newsletter since it started. Yet, there's no list or "marketplace" for add-ons. For my own benefits, I've started keeping a list and I thought it would be useful to publish this. Here it is.

I've tried to only include apps/add-ons that have been updated in the last year. However, please check each link to see when they were updated and/or contact the authors for compatibility information with Perch 2 or 3.

  • Chirp SEO gives Perch content editors the ability to analyse their content, and improve their on-site SEO. Add a keyword search phrase and check your content. Works with pages, collections Perch Blog add-on, Perch Shop.
  • Perch Image Optimiser reduces the size of uploaded images.
  • Event Logger tracks the activity of users. Useful for helping clients or for auditing your content editors.
  • Perch Locator for managing locations. Addresses are Geocoded and can be searched using coordinates or by a valid address to allow users to find places of interest near to them.
  • Member Tags gives administrators the ability to view and edit all tags used by the Perch Members app
  • Member Profiles for displaying profiles of members created with Perch Members.
  • Pipit Catalog┬áprovides an alternative listing page for Perch Shop products with image thumbnails and filtering options. It also highlights sale and stock states.
  • Pipit Sharing for sharing links to sites like Twitter and Facebook.
  • Pixelfix Shortcodes is an app to build support for Perch shortcodes.
  • YB Forum is a forum add-on. Users can add/edit posts to new or existing topics. Posts need to be moderated before they appear on the forum.

If you know other add-ons, let me know in the Comments, and I'll update the list. Thanks!
