Custom fields for posts


#1

For example, to have caption for the featured image (using <figcaption> in the theme with the custom field), and many other possible things.

It’s currently a feature tagged “later”, with the author of the above issue offering to work on it.

I would go even further than custom fields and say that Ghost could use custom content types (ideally with an admin interface to add them, on a concept similar to pods.io for WP)…

I think this would be the feature that will allow Ghost to move beyond just a publishing platform for blogs and become truly a platform for journalism as it would allow small and medium sized publishers to build their websites by offering them a flexible content structure.

Just my 2 cents :wink:

The Custom Post Type that is now available on Wordpress is pretty much a work in progress for Ghost too. Check this out:

I’ve seen that, but I guess I only browsed it as I was left with the impression it’s only about homepage and categories.


#5

An input or similar to allow the automatically generated canonical URL to be overridden on a per-post basis.


#6

As far as I know this feature exists. While editing your post click the gear icon in the top right -> change the text under Post URL


#7

Correct, but to be more specific the desire is to be able to change the canonical URL independently from the post URL. The posts from my pre-imported-to-Ghost blog were under the slug /blog/year/post-title, but after the import I now have them at /post-title. If I could change the canonical URLs independently then I could recoup the share stats associated with those old URLs.


#8

I came looking for exactly this. I run a few different blogs with some slight overlap in content and would like to edit canonical urls for cross posting purposes. It would be great as a built-in input underneath “Post URL”.
