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. 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
    tag:ZZZ
    before: dd/mm/yyyy
    after: dd/mm/yyyy
    author: authorname

    • Two Factor Authentication (2FA)

      Security these days is always a challenge and being able to provide an additional layer of security is always good. That being said, using a TOTP (Time-based One Time Password) with a free app like Google Authenticator (the same used by Github) can provide this additional layer of security to users who want it.

      • Add Custom field for a post

        Add the possibility to add custom field in post settings.
        Example:
        Add a custom field "Codepen url"
        Then, if you give an url, the post will render it and you can adapt your template styling and design.

        • 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.

          • Multilanguage blog

            It should be able to support multilanguage blog as well:
            What I would like to see is an option where I can write some content in one language (for example my mothertongue, german), and have a little flag on the blog post which link to the same blog post in an other language ( for example, english, as it's a must-have if you want to be read globally).
            The same should apply for the whole blog, with a prefix in the URL (blog.com/de/ and blog.com/en/)

            • Custom excerpt for articles

              At the moment Ghost just truncates the article's text in excerpts (e.g. on http://blog.ghost.org/). I would like to set a custom string that will be used as an excerpt.

              • 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…

                            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.

                              You can hard code your themes options in your .hbs file, then change those cosmetic "CSS" settings via the settings screen, like in tumblr for example, the handle bar type code is added then the visual editor in settings in tumblr, is then used to change the appearance.

                                The idea is to have estimated reading time show in the editor so that authors can see how long as post will take to read while they're still authoring it.

                                Also make the value available so that themes can choose to output this data per post.

                                  • Attach file(s) to post

                                    For technical blog post it is very often useful to be able to attach sample code in the format of one or multiple file(s).

                                    Ideally it would work the same as adding an image placeholder. So some markdown format with no value which allows to just drop the file in.

                                    While there are alternatives to this (e.g. pointing to a git repo), these take you out of the writer flow which is not ideal.

                                    • 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. ... > …

                                        Progressive Web Apps are experiences that combine the best of web and native apps. They're web apps that can be added to the user's home screen, load fast, can launch in full-screen, work offline, and can send push notifications.

                                        PWAs increase reader engagement and are well-suited for publishers, especially when combined with Accelerated Mobile Pages (AMP). Washington Post has an excellent PWA demo at https://www.washingtonpost.com/pwa

                                          It could be a good idea to highlight non-breaking spaces when you edit a post. It's very useful in french, especially for angle quotes and numbers (we write 35 000 and not 35.000).
