Required Steps for Installation

  1. Download the files
  2. Configure the follow buttons in partials/follow.hbs (see section below)
  3. Zip the files, upload through the Ghost admin panel, and activate

Suggested Customizations

  • Change the link color on line 88 in assets/styles/crisp.css
  • Add code for Google Analytics in default.hbs after {{ghost_foot}}
  • Replace the Disqus universal embed code in partials/comments.hbs, or delete the #comments div to remove comments altogether
  • Remove irrelevant social sharing services in partials/share.hbs, or change the colors of social sharing services in assets/styles/rrssb.css
  • Change your blog logo to change the favicon and cover photo to change the sidebar background

Editing Follow Buttons

Crisp uses Font Awesome for icons. See the Font Awesome documentation for the full list of icons and usage tips.

I have placed some common buttons in follow.hbs, with more options in the commented out sections. Make sure to replace the username in the URLs so the links point to your profiles.

Features, Changelog, and Technical Notes

Below is a summary of updates since the initial release. If you need more detail, I suggest reading the full commit history. For an idea of the roadmap and open issues, please refer to the current open issues.

This theme is compatible with all modern versions of Chrome, Firefox, Safari, and IE9+.

Version 1.0.0 — September 7, 2018

  • Updated for compatibility with Ghost v2+
  • Uses social media settings from dashboard
  • Upgraded to Disqus universal embed code

Many thanks to @davegandy for the Font Awesome icons used throughout the theme.

Social sharing buttons are a modified version of the Ridiculously Responsive Social Sharing Buttons by @dbox and @seagoat. Great job, guys!
