In Detail

0.11.11 is a pretty small release, the main headline change is that forwards compatibility
with Ghost 1.0 themes has been added.

Forwards compatibility will allow you to install a 1.0 compatible theme prior to making the switch to Ghost 1.0. Please note: Ghost 1.0 has built-in compatibility checking, whereas Ghost LTS does not. To be absolutely sure a theme is compatible, please upload it to Ghost 1.0 or use

Theme API Changes

Image properties that were renamed in 1.0 have been aliased to the old values so these will work in 0.11.11:

  • {{@blog.cover_image}}
  • {{post.feature_image}}
  • {{tag.feature_image}}
  • {{user.profile_image}}
  • {{user.cover_image}}

The {{img_url}} helper has also been added for forwards compatibility.

See the theme API docs for full details of what changed in Ghost 0.11.11. The theme documentation is frequently updated with more details and better examples. Please also use the suggest edits feature if you find something is missing or out of date.
