Invite-only Ghost Website

With the new Ghost Portal addition for managing who can access your website content, you can now have an invite-only and private website. People you invite can access the content, and they will sign in as well.

Ghost Editor Support for Grammarly

The Ghost editor now supports Grammarly ↗. Grammarly is an excellent writing assistant tool that reviews spelling, grammar, and the clarity of writing.

Grammarly support added in Ghost 4.7.0, so make sure you update your Ghost if you use an old version.

Ghost Dropped Support for Node.js 10

Ghost 4.5 no longer supports Nodejs 10.

If you are self-hosting and want to upgrade to Ghost 4.5 and still uses Node 10, you need to upgrade Node to the current recommended version ↗, which is 14.x.

Unofficial Ghost Chat on Slack

A new unofficial/group for Ghost on Slack. I think it’s an excellent place to have a quick question or discuss anything related to Ghost.


Ghost Quick Tip

Append /edit to your post URL, and you will be redirected to the post editor.

For example, http://example.com/welcomehttp://example.com/welcome/edit

Of course, you need to be logged in.

Also, you can use the Ghost Edit Button ↗ Chrome extension for doing that.
