If you wish to have a direct way in which your readers can contact you, you can add a contact page based on Formspree.

Step-by-Step
  1. Create a new Page and give it a title, like "Contact".
  2. Give it a feature photo if you want to, and choose the page layout from Template option.
  3. Choose any template. For a page, we create a special template named “Page” under Template option. You can choose any other template also. It’s your choice.

	</fieldset>
	<input type="submit" class="button button-primary" value="Send">
</form>

Dark page

Besides supporting a light/dark theme for the entire website, this theme supports setting some specific pages to dark.

Let’s say your default theme is light, but you want special pages (e.g., Gallery page) to be dark to make the visual more appealing. You can do that in this theme.

You can do it for all pages and posts.

Step-by-Step
  1. In the Ghost admin, to go any page or post that you want to set the dark theme.
  2. Open Page/Post settings panel.
  3. In the Tags input, add the tag #dark.
  4. Click Updates.

Custom settings

Colors

The theme supports changing the Accent color and background color for your website.

Set Accent color

Accent color is the primary one used in your publication theme. Vancouver uses the Accent color throughout the theme in buttons, social sharing hover,…

You can change the theme Accent color from the Ghost admin.

Change the Accent color from the admin Settings > Design & Branding > Customize > Brand > Accent color.

Change the background color

If you don't like the default pure white background, you can change to a different background colors.

You can choose any background color you want. Kyoto will auto-calculate the color contrast and set the text color to keep it readable.

When you use the Hero section with the default, image right, and image top styles, there will be an additional option to choose the background for the hero section. You might also want to change the hero section background to make it look better when you change the page background.

You can change the Background color and Hero background color from the admin Settings > Design & Branding > Customize > Site wide > Background color.

Light and Dark mode

Kyoto will change the color palette based on the background color; you can choose your theme, light or dark.

The theme doesn't support light/dark theme switching to keep the theme simple and usable.

Typography

Depending on the selected ones, this setting will change the heading and body text fonts.

Default font-pairing

Vancouver has two variants of font-pairing

  1. Modern sans-serif (Default): The theme uses system fonts which will adapt based on the OS
  2. Elegant serif: The theme uses Libre Baskerville as the default font for elegant style.
Step-to-Step to customize
  1. Go to Settings > Design & branding > Site wide from the admin menu
  2. Choose font for title/heading by clicking on Title font
  3. Choose a font for the body by clicking on Body font
  4. Click Save

Change to any fonts

You can change any font from the Ghost admin interface with Code Injection and Google Fonts.

For example, if you want to use "Inter" and "EB Garamond" fonts from Google Fonts, your code in Code Injection will be like this:

<link href="https://fonts.googleapis.com/css2?family=EB+Garamond:wght@500&family=Inter:wght@400;700&display=swap" rel="stylesheet">

<style>
  :root {
    --font-base: 'Roboto', sans-serif;
    --font-serif: 'EB Garamond', serif;
  }
</style>

You can also use your custom local font by including it on your theme with a code editor. This technique is more advanced, but you can add 'your own' fonts :D

The navigation items will be auto-adjusted based on the width of the browser and the length of items, so you can add as many items as you want.

If the navigation items reach the max width, they will be put inside a popover that appears when clicking on the ( … ) icon.

  1. Go to Settings > Navigation > Primary Navigation
  2. Type the page's name in the label field as you'd like it to appear on your menu.
  3. Click on the item's URL. The blog URL will already be auto-populated. Add the page slug after the final /. When satisfied with your page configurations, click the Save button.

Like the header, you can add the footer navigation links from the Ghost Admin Settings > Navigation > Secondary

To group footer items into different groups, adding # before the name.

Logos & Profile image

In this theme, you can change your logo and profile avatar on the header.

  • Publication logo as the website logo on the left
  • Profile image as the right profile photo

You can find Publiccation logo under Brand, and Profile image under Site wide.

  1. Go to Settings > Design & branding from the admin menu
  2. Under Brand, click Upload logo button in the Publication logo menu item
  3. Save

If you want to change the logo size, use the code in Code Injection.

<style>
  .gh-head-logo img {
    max-height: 40px;
  }
</style>

The default value is 40px, so you can increase this value to match your preference.

Step-to-add To upload Profile image:
  1. Go to Settings > Design & branding from the admin menu
  2. Under Site wide, click Upload image button in the Profile photo menu item
  3. Save

Table of content

You can add a table of contents (TOC) to any post. Add this HTML code to your post.

<aside class="toc-container">
    <div class="toc-sidebar">
        <h4>On this page</h4>
        <div class="toc"></div>
    </div>
</aside>
Step-by-Step
  1. Create a new post and write your post
  2. Right under the title, add an HTML card
  3. Insert the code above. You might want to change the TOC's header text. Maybe you call it Table of Contents.
  4. Publish and review it

Note: If you don’t want a title (e.g., On this page), remove it from the HTML code you see above.

Posts per page

By default, the homepage, author's, and tag's page display a maximum of 20 posts per page, but you can change this number.

Step-by-Step
  1. You'll need to open the theme's package.json file in your code editor and find the following:
"config": {
    ...
    "posts_per_page": 20
    ...
}
  1. Change the value of the 20 to the expected value.
  2. Save your package.json file in root folder.

Google Analytics

To integrate Google Analytics, I recommend using the Google Analytics integration by Ghost.

Syntax Highlighting

You can add a fenced code block by placing triple backticks ``` before and after the code block. For example:

pre {
  background-color: #f4f4f4;
  max-width: 100%;
  overflow: auto;
}

This will produce the following gray look:

Ubud Ghost Theme Syntax Highlighting

To highlight a code block, add a language alias like css or js to the code block. For example, the CSS code in the previous example will wrap between  "css  and  ``` ` as follows:

pre {
  background-color: #f4f4f4;
  max-width: 100%;
  overflow: auto;
}

This will produce the following colored look:

To add inline code, wrap the text between two backticks " ."

Prism

The theme ships with Prism.js, a lightweight, robust, and elegant syntax highlighter.

The initial Prism package includes some languages, like MarkupCSSC-like, and JavaScript.

You can add support for more languages by adding the Prism autoloader script, which will automatically load the languages you need. Add the following script to the website admin **Code Injection (Site Footer)**to do this.

<script src="https://cdnjs.cloudflare.com/ajax/libs/prism/1.28.0/plugins/autoloader/prism-autoloader.min.js" integrity="sha512-fTl/qcO1VgvKtOMApX2PdZzkziyr2stM65GYPLGuYMnuMm1z2JLJG6XVU7C/mR+E7xBUqCivykuhlzfqxXBXbg==" crossorigin="anonymous" referrerpolicy="no-referrer"></script>

Click Save.

Responsive tables

The responsive table will display a horizontal scroll bar if the screen is too small to display the full content. The following description applies to the table added using the markdown card.

By default, the table adapts to the window width. If you have a table that is too wide, it will display a horizontal scroll bar when needed.
Step-by-Step
  1. To add a responsive table, use the Markdown card.
  2. Add the markdown to create a table. To generate a table, you can use the tool Markdown Tables Generator. Below is an example
| # | Heading | Heading | Heading | Heading | Heading |
|:--|:--------|:--------|:--------|:--------|:--------|
| 1 | Cell | Cell | Cell | Cell | Cell |
| 2 | Cell | Cell | Cell | Cell | Cell |
| 3 | Cell | Cell | Cell | Cell | Cell |

Subscription form

Subscription is placed at the bottom of the post page and on the homepage next to the Latest post area.

Change subscription form text

You can change the subscription box's title from the Ghost Admin.

Two subscription boxes use the same copy. When you change the text, it will change in both places.

Step-to-Step
  1. Go to Settings > Designs & branding > Homepage in Ghost Admin
  2. Change the copy in Email signup text input.
  3. Finally, click Save.

Inline subscription box

You can add an inline subscription box in any place in your post with this code.

Step-to-Step
  1. Create any post as usual
  2. At the line you want to add the form, click + icon or type /, and select the HTML option
  3. Paste the code below. (Note: the form comes with a spinner animation, so it's a bit complicated.)
  4. Preview and publish the post
<form class="form-wrapper cover-form inline-form" data-members-form="">
    <input class="auth-email" type="email" data-members-email="" placeholder="Enter your email" required="true" autocomplete="false">

Comment / Member discussion

Vancouver comes with Ghost Native Comments integration. You can turn the comments on from your Ghost admin Settings > Membership > Access > Edit > Commenting.

Languages

The theme is fully translatable by enabling a publication language in the settings of the Ghost Admin. Before that, you must prepare your language file.

Step-by-Step
  1. Inside the ../locales/ folder, add target language files for each translatable language used on your site. For example, fr.json is for French, and pl.json is for Polish. A valid language code must be used.
  2. Translate the sentences used in the theme inside your new language files, for example, in en.json:
{
	"Subscribe": "Subscribe",
	"Sign in ": "Sign in",
	"Account": "Account",
    ...
}
  1. And edited to translate into Spanish for fr.json:
{
    "Subscribe": "S'abonner",
	"Sign in ": "Se connecter",
	"Account": "Compte",
    ...
}
  1. Upload a theme with a new language file.
  2. Go to the General settings in the Ghost Admin.
  3. At the top of the page, you'll see the Publication info section
  4. Enter the correct language code into your Publication language settings menu.
  5. Finally, click Save to activate.
💡
Reactivate the translation file
If you edited the active language, you must restart Ghost to make the changes effective. Alternatively, enter another language code and click Save to activate, then switch back to your code.

You will encounter information about editing theme files in many places in this documentation.

To edit files, you will need to unzip the theme archive – at this point, you will have access to the necessary files indicated in the theme documentation.

Step-by-Step
  1. To edit your theme files, download a copy of the theme. For this purpose, go to the Design settings in the Ghost Admin and click Change theme in the bottom left corner.
  2. Use the Advanced dropdown menu in the upper right corner to download your theme, then unzip the theme locally.
  3. Once the theme is unzipped, the files can be edited using a code editor – make the changes indicated in the theme documentation.
You can edit files using applications (code editor) such as Sublime TextVisual Studio Code or Brackets. Using native text editors like TextEdit on macOS may add formatting that may cause the theme to work incorrectly.
  1. After changing the theme code, re-zip the theme directory to upload it back to Ghost.
To create a zip archive on a macOS, right-click on the theme folder to view the context menu. Then, click the Compress option. On Windows, right-click on the theme folder, select Send to, and then select Compressed (zipped) folder.
  1. To upload a theme, go to the Design settings in the Ghost Admin and click Change theme in the bottom left corner.
  2. Click the Upload theme button in the upper right corner.
  3. Once uploaded, click Activate to activate the theme on your site.

Code Injection

Another choice for customization is to use the Ghost Code Injection settings in Ghost admin.

For a CSS example, you can use the code in the Site Header section to change the logo color and font size.

<style>
  .c-logo__link {
    color: #4550E5;
    font-size: 32px;
  }
</style>

Check out How to use Code Injection Ghost guide for more information.

Theme deploy with GitHub actions

Vancouver comes integrated with the Deploy Ghost Theme Github action. The purpose of the GitHub action is to take the theme from the GitHub repo and send it to your website.

Loading custom font

I assume you have the font files and the initial @font-face CSS code for loading the font. Something similar to the following code.

@font-face {
  font-family: 'Atyp';
  src: local('Atyp Text Regular'), local('Atyp-Text-Regular'),
    url('AtypText-Regular.woff2') format('woff2'),
    url('AtypText-Regular.woff') format('woff'),
    url('AtypText-Regular.ttf') format('truetype');
  font-weight: 400;
  font-style: normal;
}
Step-to-Step
  1. Create a new folder in the theme under /assets and name it fonts, for example, then copy your font files there.
  2. Once you finish, zip the theme files, and upload the final zip file to your Ghost website.
  3. In Ghost admin Code Injection, add your @font-face code with the new font files path wrapped in the <style> element.
<style>
  @font-face {
    font-family: 'Atyp';
    src: local('/assets/fonts/Atyp Text Regular'), local('Atyp-Text-Regular'),
        url('/assets/fonts/AtypText-Regular.woff2') format('woff2'),
        url('/assets/fonts/AtypText-Regular.woff') format('woff'),
        url('/assets/fonts/AtypText-Regular.ttf') format('truetype');
    font-weight: 400;
    font-style: normal;
  }
</style>

This should load the fonts. Then, you can use the font and do your styling for the body.
