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. 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.

            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

          • Hide Live Preview

            Sometimes I really just want to focus on writing and forget about how my post will look when published. It'd be great to have the option to turn off live preview when it's not needed.

            • 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!

              • Multi level menu / navigation

                The menu feature since version - 0.5.10 is very helpful and much appreciated. But at current stage, as a theme developer I can only create single level menu.

                Would love to see the menu supports multiple level may be 3 level.

                In admin area the interface may remain same with little more enhancement. Currently we can arrange the order of menu entry. Then may be we can make a menu entry child of another by dragging them right.

                • Add post/page/tag filters for content management area

                  Introduce an option which allows people to filter the content management area according to content attributes, such as whether it is a post, a page, has a particular tag, author, or is featured.

                    At the end of the article other articles that you've writen should be suggested maybe based on tags?

                    • Contributor Author Account

                      This is a new user role that would be an author without the publishing privilege. Essentially a user account that can write and edit new posts but is only able to save drafts. An editor account would then review and submit final work that will be published to the site.

                      Given, that there is an editor type it only makes sense to have this additional account type in the workflow as in the current situation the editor account makes little sense since authors can simply publish work without review. This would allow the editor to fix errors and make changes…

                        Share just published post to author's related accounts in popular social services (Facebook, Twitter, Google Plus etc) in automatic or semi-automatic mode.

                        For example:
                        a. Connected social accounts in user's profile settings
                        b. Social accounts list with checkboxes inside post settings

                        • Smart Punctuation

                          It would be nice to have optional “smart punctuation”.

                          - Proper double quotes i.e. "quote" > “quote”
                          - Proper single quotes i.e. 'quote' > ‘quote’
                          - Nice apostrophe i.e. Joel's > Joel’s
                          - Prime and double prime preserved directly after numbers i.e. 10" 2'
                          - Smart ellipsis i.e. ... > …

                          • Upload multiple images at once

                            Quite often I want to upload a series of images, a simple gallery or even just posting the images one after another. One at a time in it's current format is archaic. Both Posthaven and Medium handle images better.

                            • 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.

                              status:draft/preview/published
                              title:XXX
                              contains:YYY

                                Version (revision) history similar to what you'd get from Git or a wiki.

                                This has 41 votes in the trello roadmap but I couldn't find it here https://trello.com/c/1wAHv8jZ/34-post-revisions

                                There's also http://ideas.ghost.org/forums/285309-wishlist/suggestions/10522659-implement-git-commit-save-mode which seems like it might be the same thing but it doesn't seem as clear.

                                • Choose where to upload images/media

                                  Some bloggers (like me), don't run Ghost in a very big VPS
                                  So if our blogs get uploaded more and more images, the disk space can be full.
                                  I think they can be uploaded to otherwhere like FTP/SFTP/Dropbox..etc

                                  • Paste to upload image

                                    This is just something that I think would add to the intuitiveness of the platform. Wherever you have an image placeholder, you should be able to paste the image in. When you do so it should create a file in the content directory the same way uploading it would.

                                    • Add 'review' post status

                                      A post can be in one of two states: draft or published. I'd like to propose adding an additional review state. I have two rough use cases below:

                                      As a writer I'd like to mark a post as being ready for review by an editor so that the editor is aware the post has been finished.
                                      As an editor, I'd like to see a list of posts that are ready for review so I can easily find posts that need to be reviewed.

                                      Even in situations where the editor and writer are the same person, this still helps organise posts…

                                      • Import from Medium

                                        So many people are climbing onto the Medium wagon, yet Medium is at risk of becoming another Tumblr, Blogger or Posterous.

                                        Ghost is the best place to move so I think an import from Medium option would be pretty cool albeit not a high priority one yet.
