  1. force ssl on pasted links/image links

    Embedding images using third party hosters into the header of a story or inside the story itself means that the author needs to keep track of HTTPS links inside any given article to keep the website 'secure'. A convenience feature would be to have the ability, preferably a switch (option), in the settings or via the CLI to automatically convert http links to https links so that the green padlock on the website remains green and does not break.

      • Internationalization

        Make it easy to switch ghost to another language from the blog settings menu. Community could help translating it to other languages, so that not only the menus an config options would be translated, but also the default front end strings, displayed to the blog readers.

            • Enable HSTS (Strict Transport Security)

              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.

              • 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…

                • Notifications for blog admin

                  It would be helpful if as a blog administrator, I had the option of getting a notification email (whenever another user published a post or saved a draft. (Or phone notification, via an app.). That would really streamline the editing process.

                  • Append ellipses after a post's auto-generated excerpt

                    Related to the new “custom excerpts” feature… it'd be nice if there was a way to display ellipses _only_ after auto-generated excerpts on the front page. I _could_ just modify “post-card.hbs” with `{{excerpt}}...` but then it’ll show ellipses after manually-entered "custom" excerpts as well.

                        Right now the blog cover only supports the use of static image files or gifs. It would be nice if the blog cover supported mp4 files with a filesize limit

                            • On logging out of the editor, redirect to the home page.

                              It would be useful to have ghost redirect to the main page after logging out or at least include a link to click on to get the user back to the main page on the logout screen.

                              • Hidden (not Internal) tags

                                I see a need for something between standard tags and the Internal Tags feature.

                                These would be tags that *do* have a feed (/tag/<tagname>) but *don't* show at the post/blog level at all.

                                The direct use for this is in creating a subset of content to be syndicated via email-to-RSS platforms. Right now, I add the tag "pushable" to posts and then my email-to-RSS grabs from /tag/pushable/rss. That part works fine but then my readers see this meaningless tag "pushable" -- I have custom JS and CSS to hide it on the individual post page but it still shows up…

                                    Ghost has a 300 character limit for excerpts but it would be super helpful to have a live character count so you can see how many characters you have used or have remaining.

                                      • 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

                                          Currently, the only way to set a publish date is to use the date picker control. This control only allows you to navigate +/- 1 month at a time. In the use case where a user might need to backdate several posts, it can become tedious to press the previous month button multiple times to go back several months (or in some cases, several years).

                                          A good solution would be to allow for manual entry of the publish date or modify the date picker control to allow for selecting the month or year, in addition to the day.
