How can we make Ghost better?

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

      Yep, this is needed! We’re looking into how we can do this best. One challenge here is that there are far fewer good image processing libraries written for Node, because it’s still relatively young. We’re on the case

    • Apps

      Allow third party integrations with the Ghost publishing platform, and extensions of its functionality. Got ideas for specific apps? Leave a comment!

          We’ve just started working on a native auto-updater which will allow all Ghost blogs to update themselves.

          In the mean time, the easiest way to get 0-click updates is to use Ghost(Pro) (https://ghost.org/pricing/) – where you get fully managed background updates without having to do a thing.

        • Post Analytics

          Collect, and display detailed post analytics in Ghost admin to allow users to analyse reader engagement with their content.

          • Media Management - Ability to manage images/media uploaded to blog

            Often times an image will go through several versions before the post is published. This results in two issues.

            a] The images remain on the server - which might be a security/copyright issue
            b] "Final" images end up with weird names - when I'd prefer to use the original name

            So the feature I'd be really excited/happy/ecstatic/glad about would be a media manager interface.

                At present we have no plans to add native commenting to Ghost. There are tons of options out there from Disqus, Livefyre, Facebook, Google Plus and IntenseDebate to name just a few. All of them have already built very comprehensive products which are used by most of the biggest sites in the world.

                Definitely still interested in hearing comments about any other use-cases, though!

              • Table support in markdown

                I'd like syntax support added for tables. I personally like the way the python-markdown module does this, but perhaps there are better way. In anycase, it'd be nice to write this in my markdown:

                | header1 | header2 | header3 |
                |--------------+--------------+---------|
                | some content | more content | easy |
                | another row | nice huh? | yay |

                (View that in monospace font)

                    • Official Mobile App

                      This is obviously more of a moonshot than a core request.

                      I think it would be great if there was an official Ghost App that allowed for connecting to Ghost(Pro) or self hosted Ghost blogs.

                      The emphasis here is that it needs to be an official Ghost App and not third party. This is to ensure trust.

                      Day mode and night more in the editor would be valuable.

                      It should support offline mode. Capturing of posts offline and then syncing them up to the blog when a connection is available.

                      Platforms to support, iOS, Android, Windows Phone.

                      I don't see…

                      • Real Custom Homepages

                        Ghost currently has the ability to create a custom home.hbs, but the page is treated like the first page of the blog. So if you have 10 posts per page, the first 10 would be available on the home page and then page two would be starting with 11. Ghost defends this choice by saying that Ghost is purely a blogging platform, but that isn’t wholly true since they support custom pages.

                        My want would be to use the upcoming query helper to display the first three posts on the homepage and then a link to view the blog in…

                        • Theme settings JSON file (like Shopify's settings_schema.json)

                          To read more about settings_schema.json -> https://docs.shopify.com/themes/theme-development/storefront-editor/settings-schema

                          I think this idea would fit perfectly with Ghost, and would help keep the theme settings UI consistent with the rest of the backend. It could also be extended to App's when they are officially supported.

                          • Image captions

                            Hi,

                            It'd be awesome to have the possibility to add image captions whenever needed. If I'm not mistaken, it shouldn't be too hard to implement this feature either.

                            I've seen someone has come up with this solution:

                            https://ghost.org/forum/using-ghost/2797-image-captions/

                            Cheers!

                              Allowing for the selection of multiple authors, to be listed for a single post. Useful for collaborative efforts, such as articles where numerous people contribute a section (see: The Guardian - http://www.theguardian.com/lifeandstyle/2014/dec/27/what-were-you-like-2014-quizzes).

                              Possibly better as an app, but still has its uses.

                                    • Admin - Search with advanced operators

                                      Next to the 'post filter menu' add a search field.

                                      This is to be able to search for posts within admin quickly instead of needing to scroll through the whole list of posts.

                                      Allow users to use one or more search operators to make the search more specific.

                                        It would be nice to be able to choose from a template when writing a new post, and allow to edit these templates.

                                          1. Full BIO.

                                          The idea is to add a large bio field to the author section in admin, that supports markdown. Essentially a full page of content and perhaps even include additional images like a normal static page. If it's left empty in admin, don't output it on the client side.

                                          2. Author social icons.

                                          Add fields to the user profile screen for as many social networks as possible.

                                          People can then fill in the links to their profiles on each of the networks.

                                          If a link is filled in, then add an anchor to the author page using the…
