Sticko - A free Ghost theme :)


About this theme

I've been working as a UI/UX Dev and Art Director for the last 12 years. I've also been using the web as a huge source of information for my personal and professional career. sticko is my own way to give back something i love and live for to the internet community: a clean, modern, responsive and free theme for the emerging -and absolutely amazing- blogging platform called Ghost.

I really hope you like it and feel free to use this theme for whatever purpose you want.


  • Full responsive.
  • Lightweight yet beautiful.
  • Google+ Comments on Posts.
  • Off-canvas navigation.
  • Author info outside loop across the whole theme.
  • Responsive videos (thanks to FitVid.js).
  • Possibility to add cover images on posts (thanks to Thom Cullen).
  • Loading indicator.
  • Icon fonts - support for Retina Display/High pixel density screens.
  • SCSS source files for further modifications.


  • Grab a copy of this repository.
  • Place it inside your Ghost installation folder; specifically in /content/themes/.
  • Restart your Ghost instance.
  • Log in the admin panel, go to Settings > General and select sticko from the Theme dropdown menu. Then hit Save.

Optional: Set a cover image for your fresh installed blog. If you dont, dont worry; sticko comes with a preset cover image.

Set a cover image for every post

Ghost does not let you specify a cover/featured image yet, but sticko allows that functionality just by specifying the proper alt property of the desired image:


Thanks to Thomas Cullen for this great workaround.

Sticko is developed on top of Sass and Compass, which means that you are going to need both running on your own machine; follow both guides to set up the proper environment.
