So I bought Ghost Pro Creator subscription, after allowing myself to be influenced by positive reviews and general touting of this platform as “extremely easy to use”.
Well, let’s see how easy it is to remove default posts that come with some free theme:
As you see, there is no “Delete” button which would allow to get rid of these default posts - I can only “unpublish” them, which means they will still stay in my dashboard as drafts. Whose idea was this? Why would I need a default post in my blog, even as a draft?
Next - about creating a now post. All the newly created posts go to the home page of the theme and there is no option which would allow me to publish a post to some other page. I can create a custom new page but this new page will be only displayed if i add some additional string to the URL. For example, if i create a new page “test”, it will be accessible by querying Easy Website Builder | Web Hosting Included | Ownwebsite.com in the browser, but this “test” page will not be visible anywhere in the website’s navigation pane.
How difficult is for the devs of this dashboard to allow linking a new page to the desired navigation? What’s the point of allowing custom navigation menus in Settings → Navigation, if there is no possibility to map to any existing page? As a result, any custom navigation button will return 404 when clicked on.
So where is the extreme simplicity and ease of use?
