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. Using tab-button when write in the markdown editor

    I would be cool is the tab-button was supported in the markdown editor so that creating bullet listing, code-examples etc. would be easier.

      • Support for other databases (MongoDB, Firebase)

        MongoDB support & easy configuration for external database hosting with MongoHQ.com, Mongolab.com etc. This would be great for scaling, load balancing and would also make it easier to transition between different hosting solutions for Ghost i.e your own server to Ghost Pro.

          Just to give you a bit of context, Ghost’s database support is based completely on the capabilities of Bookshelf.js – https://github.com/tgriesser/bookshelf – if they add support, we automatically get support. So it might be worth casting a vote in their repository, or (if you have the resources) helping them add it!

        • 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

          • Ghost(pro) blogs on relative paths

            We have a Ghost(pro) blog on a subdomain blog.example.com, but to reap in SEO benefits, we would like official support to be able to route the blog to a path on our domain such as: example.com/blog

            We're already achieving this by using URL rewrites in an asp.net application to proxy requests to the official blog host, but we are often burdened with the incorrect canonical url being used in our theme, for example, we can't use the {{ghost_head}} helper due to it using the wrong url.

            • {{post_footer}}

              Just like we can do the new code injection for {{ghost_header}} and {{ghost_footer}}, it'd be great to have a {{post_footer}} so we can easily add disqus comments without editing the post.hbs directly.

              • Posts 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.

                • ctrl / cmd + [ ] shortcut for indent/unindent

                  Since 0.6.0 the editor no longer captures tabs, meaning it's easier to navigate around the interface using a keyboard (great for accessibility).

                  Adding a keyboard shortcut to allow indenting / unindenting lines or blocks could be a useful addition. Using ctrl/cmd + [ ] is quite standard for indent/unindent - it's commonly used in brackets and other editors.

                  • Keep editor and preview scroll position in sync

                    I've found that as soon as you start to post images the editor view and preview view become out of sync when you scroll, meaning where you are in the editor window no longer matches where you are in the preview window, so you have to scroll both screens separately to see your changes.

                    It would be great if both could be kept in sync so that whatever you were working on in the editor window would always be visible in the preview window.

                      • Back-up the entirety of the blog (including the images)

                        So far you can only export the content of the blog but it doesn't include the images, ideally the export would also give you the folder with the images/media in it.

                        • Ability to get popular posts based on views

                          Right now there is no posibility to have this, as views to post are not registered. Using an external app config or adding a views database column to post and incrementing the number every time a post is rendered would be a very nice to have.

                              • Sign out everywhere

                                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.

                                    • 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

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

                                          Hi,
                                          Is it possible to plan a multi level post ?
                                          It means:

                                          - Main Post 0,
                                          - Sub Post 1,
                                          - Sub Post 1.0,
                                          - Sub Post 1.1,
                                          - Sub Post 2.
