Unlike posts, pages in Ghost can be used to serve static, independent content on your site.
For example, pages can be used for:
- About pages – showcase important information about your publication or business
- Contact pages – use custom embeds to add a contact form and share contact information
- Landing pages – create custom, one-off pages to showcase a custom offer for new members
- Terms of Services pages – include custom legal information or details on the terms of using your site
Pages use the same editor as posts, meaning you can set a featured image, use editor cards and custom embeds, and apply custom page settings.
When a page is published, it's accessible directly from the URL that's generated after publishing. However, it doesn't automatically link to your site navigation, or appear anywhere on your site in the same manner a post would – e.g. pages will not appear in tag collections, author collections or on the homepage.

Creating a page
To create a new page, go to Pages from the admin menu on the left.
From there, click on the New page button in the top right corner of the screen.
Once the editor launches, you can draft your static content to be published as a page on your site.
Creating landing pages
You can create drastically different pages in Ghost, by removing the title and feature image from the page settings within the editor.
When toggled off, your page will be published without a title or feature image, and a combination of dynamic cards can be used to create a customized landing page without the need to touch code.
Here are some examples of what’s possible when using this feature:
