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".
(thinking…)

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. 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.

    • 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…

      • 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.

        • Email Subscriptions

          Have email subscriptions included in Ghost - Instead of looking for a third provider to send emails every time you post something new on your blog.

          • Let the users decide between a Markdown and a WYSIWYG editor

            The UX of a WYSIWYG editor is not bad at all. It has worked well for many years and not all users have interest nor attention to detail for Markdown. Let the user choose, don't impose it.

            • Support For Post Series

              I would like to be able to publish a series and link individual post as parts in to a series. For example, may start a series Called Fuzzy Kittens, and once a month add a new part to the series that features a new fuzzy kitten.

              Users would be able to see other parts in the same series and quickly navigate to other parts.

              It should also allow a series to be featured, rather than individual posts.

              While this is technically possible with carefully named tags and titles,that makes management difficult and makes for a bad end user experience as…

              • Redirects

                Sometimes you have to change your post URL by some reasons.
                It would be good if Ghost will prompt you to setup a redirect from your old post URl to the new one.

                • 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. ... > …

                    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

                    • Automatic social sharing

                      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

                      • Single Sign-in via OAuth2

                        This helps with companies and enterprises that use federated security models and want author and admin accounts to be handled via a single sign in solution.

                        • Ability to disable user accounts

                          Add a feature in the admin area to allow administrators and owners to disable an inactive user account. Presently you would have to log in to the database and delete a user entry.

                          The admin only enables the deletion of an account at the moment but the downside to that is that is also recursively deletes all previously published posts by that author

                            • Apple News Format (JSON-based, not the deprecated RSS version)

                              Apple has been rapidly developing Apple News, and has shifted from consuming RSS to prioritising its own JSON variant for Apple News:

                              https://developer.apple.com/library/ios/documentation/General/Conceptual/Apple_News_Format_Ref/AppleNewsFormat.html#//apple_ref/doc/uid/TP40015408-CH79-SW1

                              It would be great to see native Ghost support for this in the future.

                              • 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.

                                      Let's say I'm logged in somewhere public and forgot to log out, I'd like to have a feature where I can log myself out of all sessions. Currently, I am simply running `sqlite> delete from accesstokens;` to flush the `accesstokens` table and then logging in again.

                                      It would be good if this feature is implemented as part of the UI.

                                        Ideally this would work like Medium, with Facebook or Twitter authentication.

                                          For ghost administration we would like to use our existing LDAP server for authentication rather than requiring a local user account in the ghost db. As part of this it might be nice to make it easier to plug in new authentication mechanisms so that more than just LDAP could be added in the future (ie. openID, google, saml, etc)
