Custom Navigation

Post image

It's hard to build a publication without a good site navigation structure. Until now, you had to code navigation menus for Ghost directly into your theme - which was kind of a pain.

We've just added support for custom navigation within Ghost so that you can create a simple menu for your blog with a few clicks from your settings area.

Adding navigation items

Themes can add support for these navigation menus with the all new {{navigation}} helper. Full documentation is here. You can check out an example implementation of custom navigation in the newly updated Casper theme, over on http://demo.ghost.io.

Hopefully this new addition will make themes more powerful and blogger lives more pleasurable!

Ghost(Pro) users already have access to this feature right now, there's nothing you need to do! Users running Ghost on their own servers can grab this feature by upgrading to Ghost 0.5.9.
