Internal linking - Ghost Changelog

In the past, if you wanted to link to one of your old posts you’d need to open a new tab, visit your website, track down the post, copy the URL, and paste it back into the Ghost editor.

You told us that was just too many steps, and too many tabs. (Agreed)

Now when you create a link in Ghost, you can search old posts to link to right there in the editor. It works on pages, tags and authors, too.

No more context switches to interrupt your writing flow.

🪄
To speed things up even more, just hit @ and start typing to quickly find and add a link to any of your work.

Thank you so much! This feature is a lifesaver for creating engaging newsletters without having to open my site in a separate tab to search for the link I need. I’ve been wanting this feature for at least 2 years! I truly appreciate all the hard work that goes into updating Ghost.

Now we just need a way to link media we’d like to reuse…

Love it.

One additional thing I’d love to have is a way to search the internet while creating a link, somewhat similar to how Google Doc does this.

so highlight the word wikipedia, execute a search in the background, show result(s) to writer, and let them choose the link.

I know this one is unlikely for a number of reasons, but I’ll throw it in anyway: I’d love to be able to search instagram inline. I have a men’s style blog, I often like to credit individuals with links to their instagram accounts, and that ends up being one of the most annoying tasks in some of my articles. so it would be cool.
