Ghost 4.0 Just Launched With New Design and Features

Ghost's 4.0 just launched on Product Hunt. I was very curious to see the new design and features for myself, so I went ahead and updated this blog from Ghost 3.0.

I will do a more detailed review later, but here's a first glimpse of Ghost 4.0:

Updated Editor

The editor itself got a small design update, and looks more clean and streamlined in my opinion.


Ghost 4.0 features a dashboard which includes updates and getting started guides from Ghost. The Dashboard also provides statistics and charts about your publication, including MMR, total members, paid members and email open rates.

I am in the process of migrating my Substack to Ghost, so I will have more updates on that later on.

Casper Theme

Casper Theme also got a refresh to match Ghost 4.0. You can download Casper 4.0 from GitHub. I didn't have a chance to dive into it or optimize it yet, but compared to Casper 3.x I find it cleaner and more modern. Great stuff.

Design Improvements

Ghost 4.0 brings design improvements across the admin panel. Most notably there's a new Settings page that houses everything about theme configuration and memberships. Also dark mode isn't in Labs anymore, and it activates automatically based in your system settings.
