If you’re looking for some help, it’s important to provide as much context as possible so that people are able to assist you. Try to always mention:

  • What’s your URL? This is the easiest way for others to debug your issue. Sorry, it’s internal.
  • What version of Ghost are you using? 2.13.1
  • What configuration? Using image inside GKE using NodePort service and Ingress.
  • What browser? Google Chrome
  • What errors or information do you see in the console? 404
  • What steps could someone else take to reproduce the issue you’re having?
  1. Setup slack integration in ghost blog admin page.
  2. Write a new story.
  3. Slack notification is received properly.
  4. But, when you click on the link it shows, it’s routing to previously with version 2.1.1 it used to be and shows the content as intended.

Please upgrade to the latest version of Ghost (Currently 2.19.0). We have made many fixes to URL generation which should resolve your problem.
