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.

  1. Hidden (not Internal) tags

    I see a need for something between standard tags and the Internal Tags feature.

    These would be tags that *do* have a feed (/tag/<tagname>) but *don't* show at the post/blog level at all.

    The direct use for this is in creating a subset of content to be syndicated via email-to-RSS platforms. Right now, I add the tag "pushable" to posts and then my email-to-RSS grabs from /tag/pushable/rss. That part works fine but then my readers see this meaningless tag "pushable" -- I have custom JS and CSS to hide it on the individual post page but it still shows up…

      • ifttt support

        It would be great to get ifttt as a app in Ghost, so for example posts notifcations can be send to other services.

        • Allow for video supported (mp4) blog covers

          Right now the blog cover only supports the use of static image files or gifs. It would be nice if the blog cover supported mp4 files with a filesize limit

          • Support {pagination} data in other contexts other than index, tag and author

            Pagination is only possible if a loop is created within index, tag, or author content. For statics pages pagination is not possible.

            • On logging out of the editor, redirect to the home page.

              It would be useful to have ghost redirect to the main page after logging out or at least include a link to click on to get the user back to the main page on the logout screen.

              • Internationalization

                Make it easy to switch ghost to another language from the blog settings menu. Community could help translating it to other languages, so that not only the menus an config options would be translated, but also the default front end strings, displayed to the blog readers.

                  • Being able to group your articles in folders or by topic.

                    We are producing quite a lot of content and also some series on different topics. This means our "timeline" gets full real fast. We would love to be able to group certain articles in specific folders so we can organise our work, make our lives a little easier and will be able to make changes faster.

                        • Character Count for Excerpts

                          Ghost has a 300 character limit for excerpts but it would be super helpful to have a live character count so you can see how many characters you have used or have remaining.

                          • force ssl on pasted links/image links

                            Embedding images using third party hosters into the header of a story or inside the story itself means that the author needs to keep track of HTTPS links inside any given article to keep the website 'secure'. A convenience feature would be to have the ability, preferably a switch (option), in the settings or via the CLI to automatically convert http links to https links so that the green padlock on the website remains green and does not break.

                                Themes on the marketplace all seem to be designed with different versions of Ghost/Ghost(Pro) in mind. It should be easy to filter themes by more than just cost.

                                - Which version?
                                - Self-hosted/Ghost(Pro)?
                                - Purpose (such as blog, portfolio, single-page landing site, etc)?
                                - Last updated?
                                - Any performance enhancements? Not all themes are created equally when it comes to perf.

                                etc..

                                • Paid subscribers/members only

                                  It'd be great if Ghost(Pro) supported a more robust members-only area other than the current shared password approach. This could be used to generate income via a monthly/yearly subscription to the site. Memberful (https://memberful.com) provides a popular method of doing this by providing the member database, payment processing, etc, however their integration relies on being able to insert code into the HEAD tag and OAuth for SSO.

                                  Would Ghost(Pro) consider adding:
                                  - OAuth
                                  - New role for paid members (read only to content tagged as #paid or similar)
                                  - Integration with Memberful or similar

                                  Thanks.

                                    • Setting an already-uploaded image (via link) as cover image.

                                      This used to be a feature in Ghost 0.~, but seems to have disappeared in Ghost 1.0. Could we get back the option to set a URL to an image that already exists on the server as our post's cover image?

                                      It allows me to switch between images without uploading the same thing over and over again, and lets me manage my images in subfolders via SFTP.

                                      • Append ellipses after a post's auto-generated excerpt

                                        Related to the new “custom excerpts” feature… it'd be nice if there was a way to display ellipses _only_ after auto-generated excerpts on the front page. I _could_ just modify “post-card.hbs” with `{{excerpt}}...` but then it’ll show ellipses after manually-entered "custom" excerpts as well.

                                        • Manually Enter a Publish Date

                                          Currently, the only way to set a publish date is to use the date picker control. This control only allows you to navigate +/- 1 month at a time. In the use case where a user might need to backdate several posts, it can become tedious to press the previous month button multiple times to go back several months (or in some cases, several years).

                                          A good solution would be to allow for manual entry of the publish date or modify the date picker control to allow for selecting the month or year, in addition to the day.
