New ‘Upload a New Theme’ feature for Ghost Hosting

Hot on the heels of Website Builder's new Blogging feature launch, we’re excited to share with you the brand new "Upload a new theme" feature for our Ghost blog Hosting. Now you can quickly and easily upload a new theme within the Cloud control panel, rather than having to use FTP. It’s a small change that makes a huge difference!

How to use the "Upload a new theme" feature:

  1. Download your new theme in a .zip format from Ghost’s Marketplace.
    Note: Do not edit this file. It must remain in its original state to ensure a successful upload.

  2. Login to your Cloud control panel.

  3. Click on “Manage Website” and go to “Ghost Blogging”.

    You’ll then be redirected to this page; there’s now a new section underneath your Login called “Upload a new theme”.

  4. Hit “Choose File” and select the .zip file you downloaded earlier.

  5. Hit “Upload”
    Note: Your blog will restart when the theme is added; you won’t lose any data by doing this.

  6. Log into your Ghost Admin Panel and navigate to “Settings”
