The Ghost editor is blazing fast as far creating content. The one piece that is NOT blazing fast is linking within a given piece of content / a given story / post that has be created — for example when creating documentation, or writing longer format articles where the user may need to jump from the top to exactly what they are looking for.
I continuously find myself using HTML blocks to create anchors within the pages I am writing so that I can link within a page to make it easier for BOTH users who have seen the page to skip to what they need AND users who are sharing a given segment of the page to share exactly what they would like with the recipient.
Having built an entire site / globally distributed content system around ghost (see: https://originalskateboards.com) along with automatically added / authenticated Ghost Apps the only thing I am still unfamiliar with is how to create new content Blocks within the Admin editor.
As a Ghost administrator who creates large amounts of content (including longer form content that may depart from the average Admin user’s post) I would like to create an admin BLOCK that would automatically link to EVERY H1 or H2 that has been created on a given Post when inserted with the editor.
This would allow me to create H1s and H2s not just for SEO but also as a navigational feature that could allow users to (and Admins) to GENERALLY expedite their work as far as improving the navigation WITHIN a given Post / Page quickly.
Changes this would require to implement:
- Headers (H1 / H2) that are inserted would need to also automatically create anchor tags.
- A new Anchor Block would need to be added to the Admin Editor / interface so that once inserted all headers (which have automatically created anchors) would automatically have links TO THOSE Anchor Tags inserted on the page / post once added.
Ghost has transformed my business and approach to blogging and I would love to see / help it continue to evolve. Thanks for everything you guys do.
