A minimalist, responsive, and open-source two-column theme for the Ghost publishing platform by Kathy Qian. Last tested with Ghost v2.1.1. For the last version tested with pre-2.0 Ghost releases, see the ghost-sub-2 branch.
Required Steps for Installation
- Download the files
- Configure the follow buttons in partials/follow.hbs (see section below)
- Zip the files, upload through the Ghost admin panel, and activate
- Change the link color on line 88 in assets/styles/crisp.css
- Add code for Google Analytics in default.hbs after
- 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
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.
