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. summary field for each post

    instead of using `{{excerpt}}` in the index page, having a specific `summary` field for each post will give the reader a better understanding of the post besides the post title.

    In the post, the first few characters extracted from post in `{{excerpt}}` might not well serve this purpose.

    The writer can also have a chance to write a more attractive summary to increase the CTR.

    • More social media link options

      Currently there are only options to add Facebook and Twitter links.

      Would be good to add:

      * Instagram
      * Pinterest
      * YouTube

      • Admin Comments/Notes For Post

        I would love for there to be a way for team members to leave comments or notes about posts that can only be viewed in admin by team members. In a perfect world a way to link certain comments to certain text would be great and have overall notes. Would vastly improve team blog use-case.

        • Admin read-only role

          Possibility to login to admin area with read-only access. Something that Wordpress never managed to do.

          • Support different markup languages

            As long as it can be exported to html, I see no reason not to support it.

            • Add pages to {{get}} helper

              Currently only posts, tags and users are available via the get helper.

              Add pages to this helper.

              Use case:

              * Want to add theme ability to get a set of pages to display on home page

              • 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.

                      • Filter by user role

                        Ability to filter users by their roles. Simple to implement. Usefull if you want to show a list of authors but exclude owner/admins.

                            • 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.

                                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…
