Serving custom html pages / routing question

I am running older version of Ghost Blog (0.7.*)

i would like to server a custom html folder when someone goes to

i am looking at frontend.js which appears to be using regular express routing, and im trying to add something like this:

// adding bitcoin slideshow 
router.use('/customfolder', express.static(__dirname + '/customfolder')); // this doesn't work 

router.get(/customfolder\/$/, function(req,res) {"customfolder PATH!!!!!!", __dirname); 
    res.sendFile(path.join(__dirname + '/../../../customfolder/index.html')); // this works 

not sure if this is the problem, but when i type /customfolder/mycustumfile.html , it does add a trailing slash (‘/’) to the url.

in any case the server write looks like this:

/mycustomfolder/sub/foo.html/ 404 64.833 ms - -

all i want is to server regular express style files in this folder, so i can host a html presentation

here is my solution. probably not the best?! please let me know if there is a better way.

i am just trying to have a separate html content in a /subpath

router.get(/mycustompath\/$/, function(req,res) {
    res.sendFile(path.join(__dirname + '/../../../mycustompath/index.html')); 
router.get(/mycustompath.+/, function(req,res) { // serve any content under mycustompath 
    var filePath = path.join(__dirname + '/../../..' + req.path);
    filePath = filePath.substr(0, filePath.length -1);

Ghost 0.7 is about 3 years old and is not supported in any way. Running out of date software on a public web server is an extremely bad idea and that should be your first concern before trying to figure out how to serve any file at all.
