@meanthemes – Im curious as to how you are getting post images to display in an archive type layout. I thought this wasn’t possible with Ghost yet?

Hello guys,

I really want to make a theme for Ghost but when I thought about hosting the preview…... My hosting provider doesn’t support Node.js :crying:

If I upload a theme with screenshots will it affect my chances of it being accepted?

We got our entry submitted. Really hoping themes accepted into this category will get the exposure of being on the front page with all the other new products. I totally did not notice the other four themes being accepted, and I’ve been checking back reasonably often :)

Cheers, Eric

Mine was rejected :( Twice :(

Well… at least I tried :)

Don’t know, maybe too simple for ThemeForest: Floating Islands Demo – maybe gurus could tell what’s wrong with that theme? Too simple? I would be grateful

I know you were going for simple and clean, but to be honest it just looks like it’s lacking interesting styling… like it’s a little too basic. There is a balance of creating something that is unique and interesting while maintaining simplicity and minimalism. It looks like you just need to spend some time giving the theme it’s own identity, so to speak… in order to set it apart from just a default style look.

Thanks. I think you are right. I feel that it’s basic styling, but I thought it’s enough to submit… well, noup.

Truth to be told I am a professional bearded Software Engineer, so design is one of my hobbies :) Need more practice I guess. Thanks again! :bigwink:

Well its a bit of a workaround. The actual post needs to have the image/iframe as the first thing within the post content and then on the index.hbs, insert..

{{content words=”0”}}

It works for now. I’ve asked the creator of Ghost about featured images and there is no official way so this is the closest we’ll get until someone finds a better way.

I set up an account with Digital Ocean for Nerdy, but for our latest one that’s just been approved (http://themeforest.net/forums/thread/envatos-most-wanted-5000-for-ghost-themes/110967?page=5#911061) I built it all on Ghost locally and then saved down each page as a static page so I could form a static site and uploaded it to the usual none node.js hosting. So you get the feel of how it looks and works on Ghost without the headache of hosting it on Node.js. It does take about half an hour to save it all down, change all the links and retest it though so its not the best solution. I’m hoping someone develops something with the API that allows static spawning of the blog.

We just had ours approved (http://themeforest.net/item/huckleberry-ghost-theme/5884584?WT.ac=category_item&WT.seg_1=category_item&WT.z_author=Studio164a). I’m hosting it on Digital Ocean, which is pretty excellent. It took me about 20 minutes to get the hosting & domain set up last night, so wasn’t really a hassle. You do need to have a little familiarity with SSH though :)
