Hey! This theme is one of the most original I found. I need to know one thing before buying it: is it supporting the latests Ghost 5.0 update and its new built-in comments feature? Thank you!

Hey dk788,

Thanks for your interest in Ivy, and apologies for the delay in response.

Ivy is compatible with the latest version of Ghost. As for comments, we only support Disqus at the time of writing – we tested out Ghost native comments on release and they didn’t support theme color switching so we held off. When we next push an update for Ivy we’ll revisit and if this has improved we will add support.

With that being said, adding native comment support is a simple code edit, and one we will happily guide you through via our support site should you decide upon Ivy.

Hi, in the demo, when I type in the search bar it only finds strings from the titles, not the content, is that the same in production? Thanks.

Hey Nakitastic,

Thanks for your interest in Ivy.

Search is not yet a core feature of Ghost, but we understand how important this is for certain publications so include it as a theme implementation. Due to the limitations imposed on themes, this search is performed client-side, so it’s not feasible to do a full content text search.

If the Ghost team adds native functionality for search in the future then we will update Ivy to add support for this. I recommend checking out the ongoing Ghost community forum thread for this topic.

When you upgrade the theme to support ghost v.3? I’m waiting for it

Hey snappytux,

We are planning a theme update for the near future which will add support for the Ghost v3 – we don’t have a date to share currently, however you will receive an email notification when this update is available.

How do I upgrade this theme for the latest Ghost version?

Hey HubertAI,

Ivy is compatible with the latest version of Ghost 2, which at the time of writing is 2.37.0. It is also compatible with recent the Ghost 3 major release, however you may receive some deprecation notifications when activating the theme. These can be ignored safely and will not effect the theme functionality. We are planning a theme update for the near future which will resolve these and add the new subscription features.

If you are having issues with the any of the above versions please create a ticket on our support site and we will be happy to assist.

Is theme support Ghost v.2.6.x?

Hi, quick question; does this support adverts like adsense for the home page?

Hey Lunar88,

Thanks for your interest in Ivy.

This would require editing the theme files to include the advert embed code. We would recommend Ivy for WordPress opposed to the Ghost version if you require features such as this without code edits.

Oh I see. Yes, I know how to do that with WordPress, but my client is using ghost and refuses to switch when recommended. Thanks for the suggestion, i will try it :)

How do i switch this theme from light to dark?

Hey, bought your theme tonight and been messing around with it since. Wanted to let you know, a Tag Cloud can now be generated if the public beta of the API is turned on and the following Handlebars code replaces all the static links.
 
            {{#get "tags" limit="all" include="count.posts" order="count.posts desc"}}
              {{#foreach tags}}
                  <a href="/tag/{{slug}}">{{name}}</a>
              {{/foreach}}
            {{/get}}

Hey turfyman,

Thanks for your purchase of Ivy.

We’re aware of the new Ghost API and {{get}} helper. However as this is behind a beta flag it is considered not production ready by the Ghost team. Once it has been officially released we will be updating our Ghost themes to include this functionality.

The mobile menu does not work on an iPhone in chrome.

Hey simplifiedfun,

Thanks for letting us know of the issue, we will get this fixed in the next theme update.

We aren’t using a flat URL structure, and we get errors with ’/assets/img/background.jpg’ because we are on /blog. I’ve fixed it in my verison but you may want to amend this/include it in the docs if people are using different URL structure.

Hey IDSMatt,

Thanks for your purchase and letting us know about this. We will add further information in the documentation when we release the next update. If you require any assistance with these changes please open a ticket on our support centre ( http://support.ecko.me ).
