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. "Clean empty tags" button

    Sometimes editor created bad tags, and they exists forever.

    • Add a Teaser text field per blog post

      I think it would be really awesome to give us more control of what the text output will be like when we are seeing a list of blog posts.

      I propose a "Teaser" text markdown editor field - this could be located e.g. where you set the meta information currently, or another non-obtrusive area.

      This is an issue because most of the blogs I've seen, use HTML in their teaser texts, and although this is cut off safely - it still destroys the presentation though, even if it safely cut off.

      This field should of course be optional and possibly…

      • Show post's tags in content area of admin

        I start a lot of drafts and they're all named (Untitled). It would be helpful to see a list of the tags associated with each post somewhere in the list item. Perhaps directly beneath the title.

        • Ability to add HTTP Header Fields

          It would be nice if there was a place to add additional HTTP header fields.

          Use case: if the blog is served over TLS (https), auto-redirect to https works, but the server could send the "HTTP Strict Transport Security" header field. It seems one must modify the sources in order to do this. Or add middleware. Ideally, nothing in the source code should need editing to accomplish this.

          • Theme variables from ghost settings

            Okay so I thought of this concept a bunch of times. Users should NEVER be required to edit code in order to use a theme but that happens way too often. I don't like that. I want people do be able to set their twitter or youtube or whatever I want from them directly from the theme selection.

            Oh you want this theme? You should tell us this this and that for a better experience!

            I'm typing in a hurry but you get the idea. How to integrate it? I don't know but be creative!

            Cheers! Gotta run!

            • Sub pages

              With the static pages, it would be nice to create a parent page and allow it to have sub pages. I'm planning on posting fiction, and this would be an easier way to organize stories/chapters.

              • 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.

                • Support external user account databases/services

                  For ghost administration we would like to use our existing LDAP server for authentication rather than requiring a local user account in the ghost db. As part of this it might be nice to make it easier to plug in new authentication mechanisms so that more than just LDAP could be added in the future (ie. openID, google, saml, etc)

                  • 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.

                    • Custom meta tags

                      Currently we can edit title and description. It would be nice to have a way of adding any meta we want.

                      • Reverse post order

                        I am writing a day-by-day book on Ghost and I would like to have the posts ordered in reverse (the older first and the newer last) in the home page.

                        Thank you

                        • Ability to have "jump link" RSS feeds

                          We need the ability to configure RSS feeds such that they don't always include the full contents of posts. Ideally we would be able to make use of the new {{excerpt}} version here: https://github.com/TryGhost/Ghost/issues/5060

                          Also being able to add a "click to read more" customizable jump link after the excerpt is important.

                          People who blog for a living, or who rely on ads on their site to generate revenue, are going to require a feature like this in order to drive people to their site to see the full content of their posts.

                          • Add a "hide drafts" option to the admin ui.

                            It's kinda self explanatory I guess. :)

                              • Easier inter linking of blog posts

                                Trying to interlink posts is really a pain, you have to open a new tab, find the post you want to link to, get the public url, switch back and then create the link.

                                If you change the post title, the posts public url changes and all posts that contain that url is now invalid.

                                Id like to see a function where you do something like

                                [[<keyword(s)>]]()

                                Which will then search all your posts using keywords (or list all articles if no keywords) and allow you to link to the selected post using it's internal id. The actual url generated…

                                  • Automatic creation of posts.

                                    An api to send JSON and create a ghost blog post. This will possibly have title , text (markdown), tags, author email as parameters.
                                    Also, when the user wants to create automatic daily posts which are kinda mundane (Ex: Daily weather report, Dialy latest news update , etc).

                                    This will enable too much dynamic content in Ghost.

                                      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.

                                      • Run Multiple Blogs On One Install

                                        This idea was all over the place a few years ago but never got put into ghost and I haven't seen a word about this recently. This is a feature that would be really useful to me as I run multiple blogs and there are guides all over the web talking about this so I think others would benefit from the feature.
