Some users requested it and now it is available: Ghostboard does not require any API integration to track views. Keep reading to learn more.
- API integration is not required
- No block to start using Ghostboard
- Avoid the previous issue of only 'Home' views
- API integration is needed for the next reports: SEO, Posts, Authors and Tags
- When no using API integration and a post changes its URL, it will be counted as a different URL. Please use API integration to avoid this.
No action required 👍
This change is available out-the-box, you do not have to change anything in your blog or Ghostboard account, both for current accounts or new ones.
💡 Ghostboard recommends using the API integration if available, in order to be able to see the custom reports: SEO, Posts, Authors & Tags.
Previously, Ghostboard required an API integration in order to sync the content: posts, pages, authors & tags. And this could block the use of Ghostboard.
After setting up the API integration, the blog content was synced and when getting views, Ghostboard matched the fetched posts & pages with the tracked views.
This had the downside of requiring an API integration to show the posts and the views count in Ghostboard. In case of no API integration, no views 🚨
Since some users forget to do it or were using Ghost Pro Starter Plan (it does not allow API integrations), this was a major issue at the time of enjoying Ghostboard
If you are wondering why Ghostboard worked in this way, instead of the new method, it was a faster way to start for Ghostboard and also avoided dealing with URL changes.
Anyway, now Ghostboard is more accessible and easy to use
