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.

  1. Post Categories

    I think it'd be a valuable idea to give Ghost a concept of "Categories".

    Note that Categories are not the same as Tags - whilst a post can have many Tags, it can only have one Category at most, or none at all.

    For instance, on my blog, I write product reviews as well as non-review content. I currently add a footer to each review post with a bit of information (I don't accept free product samples, et cetera) in the markdown for the post - this creates a lot of redundant content, as well as making it very hard…

      • Add pages to {{get}} helper

        Currently only posts, tags and users are available via the get helper.

        Add pages to this helper.

        Use case:

        * Want to add theme ability to get a set of pages to display on home page

        • More social media link options

          Currently there are only options to add Facebook and Twitter links.

          Would be good to add:

          * Instagram
          * Pinterest
          * YouTube

          • Custom taxonomies

            There are times when categories and tags are not enough. I wish Ghost would let user define it’s own taxonomies and use them.

            For instance, if I wanted to use Ghost instead of WordPress for my movie critics blog, I would need taxonomies for the director, for the actors, the country, etc.

            • RTL support

              Would love to see support for RTL input:

              * writing a post
              * tag
              * meta data (seo stuff)

              I know there's a big initiative with i18n, but I think just RTL support in input would be a big win.

              • Make some private pages or post

                I don't think that doing this could be difficult. My idea is a 'Pages Options App' for pages/posts configs with a middleware that catchs the settings (in this case, private or public page/post & password) & get in the request the password for evaluate against the settings if return the page or negative response.

                Maybe it could make some roles for each private page/post, too.

                    • Photograph/Media Feed of Selected Images

                      As someone who published photographs, not only as accompanying content to text, but as individual content, I would love a function were certain images/photographs can be selected for a gallery or a slideshow. Perhaps an index of all media uploaded can be made; have their own menu tab called "media" or "images", much like "Posts" have. There galleries and slideshows can be created and then added into posts and onto pages via handlebars or something alike. I think this would be a feature much appreciated by Ghost users who use their blogs for photography portfolios and the alike!

                            • ghost individual

                              Ghost pro is too expensive for individuals. Create a ghost individual for amateur bloggers at a lower price points. Maybe provide it free but with adverts. Say ads kick in if a article has x number of views.

                              • RSS-to-email handling of images

                                Currently if you use RSS-to-email via Feedburner/Mailchimp/etc to publish blog posts to emailsubscribers you are stuck with however HTML gets interpreted by the mailclient. Which in my case shows the images I have in posts show in actual size rather than downsized.

                                This is quite annoying and hard to fix. Although there is a fix for it that is explained here (https://css-tricks.com/dealing-content-images-email/).

                                It would be great if this could also be resolved for Ghost, maybe via an additional RSS feed like those for Author/Tags.

                                    There is this new way for RSS or Atom: https://jsonfeed.org (https://jsonfeed.org/version/1)

                                    It feels like a newer, more flexible way of consuming your feed. Would be awesome to have this in my ghost blog as well.

                                        • summary field for each post

                                          instead of using `{{excerpt}}` in the index page, having a specific `summary` field for each post will give the reader a better understanding of the post besides the post title.

                                          In the post, the first few characters extracted from post in `{{excerpt}}` might not well serve this purpose.

                                          The writer can also have a chance to write a more attractive summary to increase the CTR.
