Hi, I’m just getting my feet wet with handlebars and ghost theme development.
I’ve just read through the Routing section of the docs to get an idea for different ways to populate a page with data, but I have a problem: I would like to create a front page that sources its content from multiple channels instead of just one. I may have overlooked this but I’m not sure this is even possible?
To illustrate, what I’m trying to achieve is the following:
- A collage of article thumbnails (let’s say “featured”, posts, but maybe just based on a hidden tag instead)
- Below, some photo posts (identified / filtered by a hidden tag)
- Below, the X most recent posts (blog-style, i.e. just all posts filtered by descending date)
Is this possible with handlebars/ghost? I assume this should be a job for channels (?) but I have not seen multiple channels being used in a single template file or routing definition, so I’m not sure how to implement this. If this will not work, what are possible workarounds to achieve a page composition like this?
I have a background in WordPress development (which I’d like to leave behind), in that case I’d have multiple
get_posts(...) calls with different filter criteria set to grab those lists of posts…
