Code Injection

What do you do when you need to inject a small snippet into your Ghost blog, like an analytics tracking code or a simple meta tag?

Before: you had to laboriously edit your theme files in order to get those common snippets into your blog. Functional, but not very convenient.

Now: you can use the new code injection feature, which allows you to inject code snippets into the {{ghost_head}} and {{ghost_foot}} helpers of your theme, without ever needing to edit it. It also means you can change themes without losing these snippets!

It’s a small thing, but a very helpful one. We’ve been testing it inside Ghost Labs for a few months, and now it’s ready for prime-time!
