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

    tag:ZZZ

    • 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.

      • 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.

        • 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.

                  • 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.

                    • 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

                        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.

                        • 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.

                          • 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

                                  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.

                                    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
