How to setup Ghostboard

🙌 It's very easy to setup Ghostboard for your blog but if you need an extra help, here it's a guide for you!

After complete your signup, you will be at the Setup page, always available on /setup if you didn't complete yet. It looks like:


Step 1: Copy your unique line

In the Setup page (login required), you can copy manually the code line or use the Copy blue text to automatically copy it to the clipboard 👌

Step 2: Paste the line in your blog

Signin in your Ghost blog (login to yourblog.domain/ghost) and then go to Code Injection section in your left menu:

👇 Paste your line in the Blog Footer section:

😉 If you already have some code, don't worry and just paste it at the beginning.

✅ Note: it will work too if you paste on Header section instead of Footer, but we recommend on Footer for a better performance of your blog.

Final step

👉 Ghost(Pro), Ghost 2.10 or newer

Starting on 2.10, Ghost deprecated the public API and added the Content API.

  • On your Ghost admin, click on Integrations at the left menu
  • Click green button Add custom integration for Ghostboard
  • Copy key value and paste in Ghostboard
