Ghost -Just A Blogging Platform; Basically a new blogging platform which is kinda similar to and may be a new game changer in the industry of blogging platforms. Ghost CMS blogging platform design is simply unreal and elegant. The screen splits up into two columns whereas the left side represents New Post, Content, Team, Settings under which you have General, Navigation, Tags, Code Injection, Apps, Labs. The right screen represents the automatic live preview of the post how it will look when published. If you want to add tags, keywords, Meta Data [ Extra content for search engines and social media ] you can do it by tapping at the small box which is at the bottom of the screen.

Although the Ghost CMS Design is incredibly very basic with non-intimidating while you have to brush your HTML skills. Ghost CMS provides HTML tips throughout Ghost CMS Help and support area to show you how to upload media including audios, music, images onto your Ghost CMS blog. However, you may need to add ” **Text** ” after and before every section you want bolded so it should make the casual blogger look for an easier blogger service.

Ghost CMS settings are minimum in the dashboard however, you are allowed to set your blog public or you can set it to keep private. RSS feeds don’t come along with the standard edition of Ghost CMS you have to setup RSS feeds by your own, so to set up RSS feeds you have to download RSS feed burner and paste it onto every post and pages. The absence of widgets and plugins feels irritated all the times. As Ghost CMS is a growing company so it has a lot of things to be packed along with the platform although, they are constantly adding features to meet the demand of blogger’s.

  • Ghost CMS Lacks Plugins: WordPress have a number of plugins for your search query and has over 46,090 plugins whereas Ghost is an establishing platform and surely doesn’t match that number yet and that’s why it lacks the functionality and the easiness.
  • Testing Phase: Ghost blogging platform is still in beta testing phase and yes there’s a lot of things which need to improvise and added to make Ghost blogging platform to meet the demand of the blogger’s and make it quite decent to use.
