Custom Content (i.e. Video)

If you have experience using Ghost to display podcasts or custom content, we’d love to hear from you!

Caroline, a tech entrepreneur in San Francisco, is one of our ideal users. She visits our site weekly to gain tips on saving for retirement via our video podcasts (i.e. videocasts).

When Caroline viewed our homepage yesterday, she saw a newsfeed of our latest articles and videocasts. Caroline prefers our videocasts so she clicked on one and was redirect to a page that contains the video at the top along with brief content to the right and comments below. If she clicks on the gray “theater mode” button below the videocast player, the video becomes full-width by covering up the brief content. However, the comment second below the video doesn’t change.

With Ghost, how would we able to use the CMS for custom content like videocasts? As of right now, our page template uses a variable called “video_url” which has its column field in our database.
