For my blog I use a slightly customized version of the default Casper theme.
Mostly because I include "disqus" comments at the bottom of the posts (comments are not supported by Ghost itself).
What I did to update my custom theme:
- Create and switch to a new branch:
git fetch upstreamto get the latest branches from the original repo
git merge upstream/masterto merge the original master into my branch
This will make sure I have the latest updates from Ghost's default theme, as well as my changes.
I did have a small conflict on the line where I removed the "feedly.com" link in the RSS feed link.
After having done that, I cloned the repo into
After doing that and restarting the blog, I could select the custom theme via the Design settings in Ghost.
Reloading everything, it turned out my comments were already working correctly on the new blog too!
Having done that, I think everything is ready to switch to the new version of the blog.
