Blog posts in Ghost are written using Markdown. Markdown is a minimal syntax for marking up your documents with formatting, using punctuation and special characters.


Headers are set using a # before the title. The number of hashes before the title text will determine the depth of the header. Header depths are from 1-6.

Heading 1

Heading 2

Heading 3

Heading 4

Heading 5
Heading 6


If you paste in a URL, like it'll automatically be linked up. But if you want to customise your anchor text, you can do that too! Here's a link to the Ghost website.



When you want to add a quote in Markdown, it’s exactly the same as the formatting which you may already be familiar with from your email app of choice when you reply to someone. Prefixing the line with a > converts it into a block-quote.

Ghost is a fully open source, hackable platform for building and running a modern online publication. We power blogs, magazines and journalists from Zappos to Sky News.



With the Bookmark card you can present links in a much richer format, similar to Twitter cards. If the URL points to a page with right meta information it can show the page title, excerpt, author, publisher and even a preview image.

At fueko you can find the best premium Ghost themes that are easy-to-use, without compromising the design and code quality. Each theme can be easily modified to fit any blog, magazine or news site.

Footnotes can be added to the body of your text using placeholders like this: [^1] or [^note] coupled with the note text at the end of the document. For example:

Here is a footnote reference,[1] and another.[2]

  1. Here's the footnote. ↩︎

  2. Here's one with multiple blocks. ↩︎


Working with Code

Code can be presented inline, like <code>.  
Indenting by 4 spaces will turn an entire paragraph into a code-block.

.awesome-thing {
    display: block;
    width: 100%;


That should be enough to get you started.  
Have fun!
