Create Authors Page in Ghost Blog

An author page is very important for every blog website. It introduces your author to your valuable readers. Besides, on the author page readers easily find your popular author content. Today I will share very easy steps to create a custom author page in your ghost blog.

Step 1: Access your Ghost Theme Files

To create a ghost authors page, you need access to the files of your Ghost theme. You can do this by either downloading the theme files from the Ghost marketplace or accessing the theme files on your Ghost hosting provider.

Step 2: Create a new File

To create a new file called custom-authors.hbs in your theme directory, you need to  follow the below steps:

  • Open your theme directory.
  • Create a new file called custom-authors.hbs
  • Copy the below code and paste the code into the newly created custom-authors.hbs file.
{{!< default}}
<header class="site-header">
  <div class="outer site-nav-main">
    <div class="inner">
      {{> "site-nav"}}
<main id="site-main" class="site-main outer" role="main">
  <div class="inner">
    <header class="post-full-header">
      <h1 class="post-full-title">{{title}}</h1>
    {{#get 'authors' limit='all' include='count.posts' order='count.posts desc'}}
      <div class="post-feed">
        {{#foreach authors}}
          <article class="post-card {{#unless profile_image}} no-image{{/unless}}">
            {{#if profile_image}}
              <a class="post-card-image-link" href="{{url}}">
                <div class="post-card-image" style="background-image: url({{profile_image}})"></div>
            <div class="post-card-content">
              <a class="post-card-content-link" href="{{url}}">
                <header class="post-card-header">
                  <h2 class="post-card-title">{{name}}</h2>
                <section class="post-card-excerpt">

In the provided code, the #get helper is utilized to fetch the blog users. The include attribute are used to retrieve the number of posts associated with each user. The order attribute is employed to arrange the users’ list based on the number of posts attached to them.

Following that, the foreach helper is implemented to iterate through each author and generate a list displaying the author’s profile image, name, URL, and bio. It’s important to remember that after making these changes, you might need to restart your server. This step ensures that the Template dropdown appears in the subsequent stage effectively.
