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.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. 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

    • RSS-to-email handling of images

      Currently if you use RSS-to-email via Feedburner/Mailchimp/etc to publish blog posts to emailsubscribers you are stuck with however HTML gets interpreted by the mailclient. Which in my case shows the images I have in posts show in actual size rather than downsized.

      This is quite annoying and hard to fix. Although there is a fix for it that is explained here (https://css-tricks.com/dealing-content-images-email/).

      It would be great if this could also be resolved for Ghost, maybe via an additional RSS feed like those for Author/Tags.

      • Convert German umlauts or special characters in the slug

        In Germany, we use characters called umlauts like "ä", "ü", "ö" and special characters like "ß" which cannot be used in URLs.

        It would be nice to have Ghost convert those to equivalents like "ae", "ue", "oe" and "ss" if possible. Simply converting to "a", "u", or "o" doesn't result in correct words.

          • comments in preview

            Allow guest users to suggest edits in the draft that blogger can share. The 'article preview' is already public.

            Allowing guest users to suggest edits will help authors to get feedback without adding people to the blog as a team.

            • 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…

                • RTL support

                  Would love to see support for RTL input:

                  * writing a post
                  * tag
                  * meta data (seo stuff)

                  I know there's a big initiative with i18n, but I think just RTL support in input would be a big win.

                  • 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.

                    • Custom taxonomies

                      There are times when categories and tags are not enough. I wish Ghost would let user define it’s own taxonomies and use them.

                      For instance, if I wanted to use Ghost instead of WordPress for my movie critics blog, I would need taxonomies for the director, for the actors, the country, etc.

                      • Private posts for user group

                        I would like to have a private area for people who have a passsword to it. I.e. there is a part of blog that is accessible to everyone and some articles that are only accessible with either a password, or for logged-in users group. That could keep some material for say for a professionals group only and most material for general availability. With the current setup it is only possible to make the whole blog private.

                        • Make some private pages or post

                          I don't think that doing this could be difficult. My idea is a 'Pages Options App' for pages/posts configs with a middleware that catchs the settings (in this case, private or public page/post & password) & get in the request the password for evaluate against the settings if return the page or negative response.

                          Maybe it could make some roles for each private page/post, too.

                          • Unsplash integration

                            Grab images directly from Unsplash.com (search by tag or something similar via Markdown?). Sketch is doing this with Craft and it works like a charm.

                            Here's a video of the Craft plugin:

                              • Control Over Open Graph Title & Description For Facebook & Twitter

                                This is with regards to Social Sharing:
                                https://developers.facebook.com/tools/debug/sharing/?q=http%3A%2F%2Fgopbn.com%2Fblog%2Fweb-2-0-private-blog-network%2F

                                If you look at the above link, you will notice that Ghost is pulling the exact same Meta title and Description for Facebook as well in the OG:Title and OG:Description, while it's great, but at the same time it's not great to automate those.

                                Facebook typically allows you to enter up to 300 Characters for Description, I see no way to setting up different description for Facebook share and maximizing the chances of more contents being displayed.

                                  In Safari 9 you can now pin tabs which makes it a lot easier to manage multiple tabs, but this only works if each tab has an icon setup to make it easily recognizable within a list of tabs.

                                  • 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.

                                      It would be nice if I could filter the list of tags on the tags admin page. Now when I have a lot of tags I have a lot of scrolling as well.

                                        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.

                                        • Add What's New to Upgrade Alert

                                          Upgrade alerts do not provide a rationalisation for upgrading (other than an incrementing number -- yay?). Adding a "What's New" dropdown expandable list (like iOS App store Updates tab) would incentivize upgrading and answer, "Why should I upgrade?".

                                          This could be automatically generated from your commit log. Could diff between currently installed version and latest for a complete list.

                                          Would expect a significant jump in folks using the latest version (likely affecting Ghost adoption depending on how significant upgrades are), which I believe would be good for the Ghost ecosystem. Every blog is an advert for Ghost and display of…
