Custom fields for posts


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 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.
