Latest Ghost CMS news and updates.

Member support

With the new impersonation feature you can support your users easier, by being able to see what they see. Authentication links are now single-use, and have been extended to 24 hours validity. They can be shared directly with any members who are having login issues, or trouble receiving emails.

New member importer

The new member importer allows you to match your CSV data to the correct fields, and review your import before you run it. You can even add tags to imports.

Introducing Portal

With the introduction of Portal member sign up, login and subscriptions can be handled by this new feature instead of the theme you are using.

Portal can be enabled in a few clicks directly inside Ghost Admin. The Portal settings menu allows you to customise the sign up options you offer on your site, and the design of the Portal UI.

Beyond member sign up and login, Portal handles the full membership experience, with carefully designed validation, notifications and account management for your subscribers.

The advantage of using Portal is that with updates you can get new features without needing to upgrade your theme, unfortunately Portal is not yet translatable.

  • image
  • newsletter template
