Creating a newsletter

Name & description
Setting a custom name and description for your newsletter makes it easier to identify inside Ghost. You can also choose to display the newsletter name within your email templates.
Opt-in existing subscribers
Enable or disable whether or not existing members should be automatically added to your newsletter. When enabled, existing members will automatically be subscribed to the newsletter you create.
Using multiple newsletters
Ghost allows you to create more than one newsletter, each with its own subscriptions, settings and template design. This means you can give your audience the option of what email content they'd like to subscribe to.
Here are a few examples of how you might use multiple newsletters:
- If you cover different topics in your content, your audience can decide which topics they’re most interested in.
- If you send daily newsletters and weekly roundups, your audience can decide when they’d like to hear from you.
- Give your audience the chance to subscribe to your newsletter and your podcast episode reminders, or just one.
Add a newsletter
To add an additional newsletter, click + Add newsletter
Once created, you’ll have additional options to customize your email newsletter design, and your newsletter will appear within Portal when new members signup, as well as when existing members manage their account preferences.
Archive a newsletter
Archiving newsletters allows you to make any newsletter you create unavailable to members. To archive a newsletter, click Edit next to the newsletter that should be archived, then scroll to the bottom of your newsletter’s general settings, and click Archive newsletter.
Once archived, the newsletter will also be unavailable as an option when publishing new posts.
Once your emails are set up with the correct names and settings, it's time to set your email template design.
