Serial nonfiction

Does Ghost have a way to publish an extended how-to project in serial form; e.g. each post builds on previous posts?

Presumably, it would need a chapter-like index.

Many thanks,

Ghost themes are extremely flexible so most things are possible if you’re willing to customise your theme :slight_smile:

Could you share some examples of other websites that are the same/similar to what you’re hoping to achieve?

I think there are a couple of ways to approach this, but the easiest solution would be to use tags.

Each post in the series would be tagged the same. Ghost would automatically create an archive page for the tagged posts at yoursite.com/tag/tag-slug. On that page, each post would be listed in the order published, and the page would serve as a chapter-like index.

This is all the default behavior, which can be customized if need be. Let me know if this is what you were thinking!

Outstanding!

Next step: Extend my backlog of posts.

Thank you, Ryan.
