Ghost blog as subdomain to Shopify site: Setting up DNS


I’m trying to set up our Ghost(Pro) blog to be accessed as a subdomain of our website hosted by Shopify (

I’ve attached the DNS configuration. The blog subdomain is forwarded using what our domain provider calls cloaked forwarding to Our Ghost blog is configured with a single link back to our main website.

Browsing to http(s):// works.

Clicking the link on the blog page to go back to our home page does not work. One ends up with a blank browser window, with the address in the address bar.

Can anyone point me in the right direction to get this working? thanks, dean
