How to setup Ghostboard

πŸ™Œ 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 πŸ‘Œ

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:
ghost_code_injection

πŸ‘‡ Paste your line in the Blog Footer section:
ghostboard-code-injection-screenshot

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

βœ… 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

πŸ‘‰ 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
