Ubud Showcase

Simply engaging

Your Ghost website can be more than a blog filled with recent posts or a design with a news-style layout.

This Ubud design will make your homepage uniquely yours. Showcase your personal or website brand while keeping things light and minimalist.

Ubud’s simplicity helps you deliver your message clearly and effectively.

Ubud Ghost Theme Homepage

Welcome visitors with a photo on your homepage and connect with readers instantly.


One theme, six styles, your choice

Your homepage should be just the way you visualize it. Choose the template that best tells your story, and change it anytime your website needs an uplift.

Paint your website a Hue of you

Colors play a huge part in the entire brand of your website.

From light, earthy tones to deeper, darker moods — Ubud has it all. Pick from nine readily available color schemes, or add your flavor.

I designed and engineered Ubud for your convenience. For example, copy and paste the CSS color codes to Ghost Code Injection to change your color scheme. It’s as easy as ABC.

Check out Ubud’s color schemes below.

Ubud documentation has nine accessible color schemes ready for you to copy and use.

About Dark Mode

With the ability to change the theme colors, your website will be available in one color. So, switching between light and dark mode is not available.

If you want a dark website, you can use a dark color scheme. Adding both features will add more unneeded complexity to the theme. To keep the theme simple, no plans for future support.


Accessible from any device

Ubud adjusts to phone, tablet, and desktop screens of any size.

Make your website available for all

Accessibility is essential, and I take this matter seriously. I designed Ubud with all individuals in mind.

The contrast in color schemes, the heading structure, and ARIA Attributes all meet inclusion and accessibility guidelines.

Ubud Ghost Theme Accessibility Skip to content
An accessibility enhancement for site navigation with a keyboard. When using a keyboard to navigate the website, the Skip to content link will enable you to skip the navigation and go directly to the main content area. This is useful if people are only using the keyboard or using a screen-reader to navigate your website.

No featured image? no problem

Most websites without featured images tend to create visible layout issues. With Ubud, you don’t have to worry.

Write to your heart’s content and know that your blog will still look beautiful and clean, even without images.

Where does the name Ubud come from?

Ubud is a lovely town in Bali, Indonesia. I visited Ubud in 2019 for two weeks during my three-month backpacking trip around Southeast Asia, and it was one of the best places I saw on that trip.

Inspired by the calmness of Ubud and the great environment, I wished to translate the experience into this theme’s design.

My new website/newsletter is in @Ghost using the excellent Ubud theme from @aspirethemes. Had some very generous support from them too as I wanted to do a little tweaking. 🙌

I have used two different Aspire themes since I moved to Ghost. I have found the themes to be well designed, well built, and technically solid. They have features I have not found in other themes I have looked at. Even better, Ahmad Ajmi, the author of the themes, is both professional and responsive — a rare combination in the theme world. I recommend Aspire Themes and their author to anyone looking to either get started with Ghost, or take their Ghost site to the next level.

I just bought the whole theme bundle from Ahmad this morning. That includes that theme. I am currently redoing my German blog using the Nubia theme and love it.

This is why I love the @Ghost community. I struggled to build a fadeout so a nice guy in the forum helped me. Then theme designer @ahmadajmi joined in. Next he releases it to all users with a (unnecessary but lovely) shoutout. This is what the Internet used to feel like.
