Set up the magazine site on Ghost 3.0

Nil @NilMostChill

Setup was surprisingly easy.

I'm trying to adopt an approach where i do as little up front yak-scaping as possible.

  • Logo from Looka (Formerly LogoJoy)
  • Ready made ghost 3.0 theme from themeforest
  • Ghost-pro account
  • Twitter account

I already had the domain/mail hosting for this one, as its been on my list for while so all i really had to do was connect my domain to a ghost account, upload the logo/theme and i was away.

There was a small amount of configuration for the theme and some options to play around with in the ghost admin panel but that was a matter of an hour, just to get a handle of what was available.

I've previously tried ghost back in the pre 1.0 days..and then again for 1.0 and 2.0, it was always a nice alternative but it was never my go to.

The latest version just feels rock solid.

And the clincher for me was the membership/subscription integration.

First post is scheduled for later this week, but it's nice to have something live, even if it's empty for now.
