Non Blog Ghost examples

Hi Ghost Members!

I’m currently looking into the viability of moving my current resource-based Wordpress site onto Ghost. I have got on really well with my personal blog and building members so I would love to move my income-based things over as well.

We provide support to members through forums, document templates, newsletters and blog posts. Obviously Ghost is really good at the blog post part, and newsletters, forums could be worked on but I’d love to see some examples of people using ghost to also sell things, provide downloads and more than just a simple blog.

Does anyone know of any?

Why do you want to use Ghost for this? As I understand it, Ghost’s sole purpose is to be a CMS. I’m not saying that it’s impossible to use it as an e-commerce site, but I would think you’re trying to fit a square peg into a round hole.

To give more constructive advice, Ghost does allow embedded HTML/JS in posts. So I suppose you could embed PayPal purchase buttons. Downloads is pretty straightforward. Once again, though, not sure why you wouldn’t want to use a framework more suited to the e-commerce realm.
