Happy New Year!
I’m new to Ghost & just want to know if this simple? thing is possible…
Is it possible to add a custom field that only appears if someone has logged in?
I’m wanting a download link (unique to each story/post) to appear below the post/story if the user is Logged in.
The WordPress equivalent is this -
Advanced Custom Fields – WordPress plugin | WordPress.org
I’m able to show a field in a public post if the user is logged in.
Hope you understand what i’m after!
Welcome to the Ghost community !
As far as I know, Ghost has no custom fields functionnality (and probably won’t have ?).
That said, the Ghost team plans to deliver a version of Ghost with membership functionnality, which could perfectly fit your need, I guess (showing this button with a sort of “is_member” or “is_login” conditionnal tag).
Add full membership support to Ghost, allowing readers to sign up, login, and comment on stories. Having readers become members opens up a lot of exciting future functionality, including:
Paid subscriptions (like Stratechery or TheInformation)
Personalised reading recommendations based on reading history (like Amazon)
Personalised email newsletters based on user history (like Product Hunt)
Detailed analytics on a per-user basis (allows advanced tools like Mixpanel/Kissmetrics to be used)
That sounds like exactly what I need! Hopefully it gets implemented in the near future!
