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 :)

Congrats guys, it looks super!

$500 Bonus Prize for the best Ghost Theme converted from an existing theme or site template

Could explain this one?

Is it allowed to convert your own theme or site template only? Or is it allowed to take an inspiration from someone else theme or site template?

I assumed it meant a template or theme of your own, not taking someone else’s design and trying to sell it off as your own Ghost version.

Ghost Theme submissions may be converted from your own existing theme or site template designs. If so make sure to notify the reviewers of this fact and link to the existing item in the submission upload comments box. For instance:


Hooray! We’ve also had Moustachey approved http://themeforest.net/item/moustachey-a-ghost-blog-theme-with-extra-gusto/5883449 which is a direct port of our most popular WordPress blog theme: http://themeforest.net/item/moustachey-a-blog-theme-with-extra-gusto/3347168 Thanks Envato and ThemeForest :)

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.

Thats actually a pretty sweet workaround. I had sufficed to simply using {{content}} rather than {{excerpt}} but thats great the excerpt can be limited so easily. Thanks for the tip!

Everyones themes look great btw. Congrats!

I asked this a few hours ago (http://themeforest.net/forums/thread/envatos-most-wanted-5000-for-ghost-themes/110967?page=4#910968) – hopefully someone will be able to let us know as soon as they can :)

The Blogging > Ghost Themes category (previously in beta) has now gone live! Congrats to all of the authors on their newly approved themes.

Don’t forget to follow the instructions on the main announcement under “What To Do After Your Items Are Approved”, such as filling out the Most Wanted Entry Agreement.

Keep the great submissions coming :)

Just submitted a new theme a few moments back. Beautiful approvals already! So psyched about this new category. Had my eyes on Ghost for a while now. :)
