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. Themes - Multiple Error Templates

    When creating a theme, adding an error.hbs allows you to do a bit of customization on your error pages.

    However, all errors are fed to this template, making it difficult to do distinct error pages (one page for 404 errors, one page for 500 errors, so on and so forth).

    I think it would be nice if you could create files like error_404.hbs and error_500.hbs and have those utilized for those error codes.

    So the stack would be something like:

    (1) use /theme/{{theme_name}}/error_{{code}}.hbs if it exists; if not...
    (2) use /theme/{{theme_name}}/error.hbs if it exists; if not...
    (3) use core/server/views/user-error.hbs

    • Discord Integration

      As a devout Discord user, I would *adore* seeing integration with Discord such as Discord login/Oauth, and native Discord webhooks :3

      Right now, I have to do a convoluted Ghost -> Slack -> Discord webhook that gets quite weird to deal with :3

      Thanks!

      • ghost individual

        Ghost pro is too expensive for individuals. Create a ghost individual for amateur bloggers at a lower price points. Maybe provide it free but with adverts. Say ads kick in if a article has x number of views.

        • 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…

              • Implement oEmbed

                With oEmbed you can paste a link into the editor and automatically insert the content. It's simpler and faster than the current Embed feature.

                  There is this new way for RSS or Atom: https://jsonfeed.org (https://jsonfeed.org/version/1)

                  It feels like a newer, more flexible way of consuming your feed. Would be awesome to have this in my ghost blog as well.

                    I think the Url is the first thing the search engine or visitor will see so I think a good url should be /en/lesson/js/overview rather than /js-overview-en

                      Currently there is no link in the <domain>/ghost/signin page back to the site. It is inconvenience or even annoying when we sign out and want to go back to the home page we have to manually modify the address bar.

                        • 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.

                          • PubSubHubbub Plugin Compatibility

                            This doesn't have to be a main/core feature of Ghost but the ability to use pubsubhubbub to help syndicate content across providers would be nice. If the plugin api would be able to complete such a task, it could ping rss readers, like the self hosted one I use, to notify on new feeds that instant.

                            I feel like this would be more of a plugin addition than a standard feature but having the core compatible with a future plugin that would do as such would be better than rewriting parts of the application to enable a single plugin. Things…

                            • AMP analytics

                              It would be great to be able to inject code for AMP, namely for analytics. Currently, it's impossible to track page analytics for AMP pages because they do not contain tracking code. There is an official AMP tag called "amp-analytics" which could be utilised to have this functionality.

                              More info: https://developers.google.com/analytics/devguides/collection/amp-analytics/

                                  HTTP Strict Transport Security (HSTS) is a web security policy mechanism which helps to protect websites against protocol downgrade attacks and cookie hijacking. It allows web servers to declare that web browsers (or other complying user agents) should only interact with it using secure HTTPS connections,[1] and never via the insecure HTTP protocol.

                                    • Adjust the sitemap priority and/or add meta-robots "noindex follow" tag

                                      When Google searching my blog "site:wanderstories.space", the tag and author pages are ranked higher than the content pages.
                                      Some tags (or authors) pages may only have one article linked and Google may also see it as duplicate content on the site and or rank the search results unfavourably.

                                      It would be nice to be able to tell Google which pages are more important by adding meta-robots "noindex follow" and/or sitemap page priority.

                                      Thanks
