Yes, we’re using Digital Ocean to run ours, $5 plan. You do need to know SSH though.

Or use WinSCP for a more visual interface and reduce the SSH commands to a bare minimum, like restarting Ghost.

I submitted a theme yesterday but it was rejected – first experience :) But for now a Ghost theme is… just a list of posts – no complex menus, no pages, no plugins. It’s unclear for me why it was rejected (aesthetics reason) – my theme is clean, light and simple with parts of flat design. I’ve fixed some issues and resubmit :)

I think ThemeForest should design some kind of alert system based on logical parts:
  • Docs (is something wrong with docs?)
  • Programming (is something wrong with HTML\CSS\JS – errors or something)
  • Design – general major (well… only redesign could help)
  • Design – general minor (well, that )
  • Design – elements (it’s okay, just some elements look not good)
  • etc.

I know that reviewers are tough guys, but after rejecting it is like “What? Is it docs… no, is it Inline Preview? Maybe… design? Fonts… well, seems ok… what else? Code… well, formatting is ok, comments is ok”... don’t know where to start solving issues.

Anyway, Ghost is awesome – simple, light and very convenient. I like the Ghost way of creating a theme (after Wordpress, no offense), Plugins will be in JavaScript – neat!

Hi,

Did you create any custom sections in theme where users can make changes to? Like about me/us box, etc?

One question, is it allowed to use the default ghost theme (casper) as kind of a framework?

not really, just use it as a starting point, probably there would be some lines here and there that would be the same, but overall it would be different.

Submitted a theme yesterday (http://juliet.owened.co.nz) but it’s stuck “waiting for review team” whatever that means. Here’s hoping!

Thanks Envato, it seems my theme ‘Venkman’ is the first Ghost theme on TF. I feel quite humbled.

Thanks Envato and ThemeForest our first Ghost theme has just been approved too!

I have noticed though if you browse to the ghost themes directory without being logged in and without being an author that they do not show and the link above goes to a 404. When will the new themes be available for everyone to see?
