Thank you.

Love the theme but I think the newsletter section should go above comments. Thanks!

Maybe I commented on the wrong theme. I’ve bought a few of your themes. Love your newest theme, Forma. Thanks for the response!

Hi there,

sorry I got a bit confused. BlogInn for Ghost has the newsletter section above the comments. So maybe you are talking about Curious. If so, I think it is a good suggestion. Currently you could simply swap these two sections in post.hbs and I could fix this in the upcoming theme update (next week).

Regards, Tomas

Hi Tomas,

It was actually BlogBox for Ghost.


A few things…

One silly quick ask about auto_ids: true, if this matters in the config.yml and why it doesn’t allow
1.        * TOC
2.        {:toc}
Even though it is kramdown and turned to true. Is auto_ids important in the blog themes?

Just wanted to mention that I solved some spacing issues I had with… transliteration. (The best I knew how…)

<div dir="ltr" style="text-align: left;" trbidi="on">
Around Markdown and Blog Posts.

Thanks, Matt

Hi Matt,

sorry for late response. I’m glad to hear that you solved your issue. If you can drop me a link to your blog I want to check it out. Maybe I have some suggestions.

As for TOC. Do I understand you correctly, TOC doesn’t work for you? If this is the case, to make TOC work you need to set auto_ids: true or just remove it. Then add {:toc} in your post.

For the ordered list you can use:

1. TOC

For the unordered list you can use:


Also, all headings need to be written in markdown in order TOC to work.

P.S. This is interesting post about TOC in Jekyll if you want to play around with it: https://blog.webjeda.com/jekyll-toc/

Best, Tomas

Thanks! Ok, my website is… https://manbearwolf.github.io/ Sorta a junk blog (converted from blogger). Hopefully one day I’ll move it to the BlogInn when I get good enough.

I had a question if ruby (_plugins) work at all on this theme? (I can get sass too, but rb files don’t seem to work at all). Does it support this???

opps, sorry the bundler was in the way.

Hello, Is there any way to get the {% highlighter html linenos %} to draw the numbers?

maybe with some kramdown _config.yml options or CSS lineno classes?

Hi Matthew,

sorry, but I do not know the solution to your question.

Best, Tomas

That’s fine… I found this great codepen that works great https://codepen.io/heiswayi/pen/jyKYyg Thanks.

Awesome! Thank you for the link.

Hello .. I hope you have great sales at this site .. Follow me TOO :D


How would I go about converting the theme to an RTL layout that also supports the Arabic language?


Hi there,

to convert the theme to an RTL layout, you would have to adjust the theme stylesheet. Start with adding the following rule for the body element:

body {
  direction: rtl;
  text-align: right;

You would probably have to adjust the site navigation and some other elements as well. Unfortunately, I don’t have much experience with RTL layouts. You can also check https://rtlcss.com/ framework, maybe it would help.
