Top 10 Ghost Themes - December 2013


Did you just get Ghost up and running? Need to find a theme? Then you are not alone. Most new Ghost users start searching for a theme after they get Ghost installed. Currently for Ghost, there are two main places to find themes, the Ghost Marketplace and ThemeForest. Here are what we think are the Top 10 Ghost themes so far:

Yokai — Responsive Ghost Theme - $18

The first thing that caught my eye with Yokai was the out of the box support for a desktop, tablet and mobile versions of the theme. Other nice features that the developer has included is support for social links, comments, and Google Analytics. All of these features can be configured and turned on by editing files in the content/themes/yokai/partials directory.

Quarter - Responsive Ghost Theme - $22

Quarter is an awesome theme that breaks the page down into 3 columns. Great for blogging and a very nice change from a lot of the single column themes. Demo

Toffee - A Pin-Board Style Ghost Theme - $22

Toffee is nice because it is different but simple at the same time. It strays from the typical top down approach for a blog and goes with the pin-board style.

Storylane - Timeline Ghost Theme - $18

I love the home page for Storylane. This design is begging me to start a photo of the day blog.

Phantom - Flat Parallax Responsive Ghost Theme - $18

Phantom is currently the most sold Ghost theme on Themeforest and it definitely deserves it. It has a parallax cover image which adds some cool depth to your site kind of similar to the way the new background images are on iOS 7. Demo All About Ghost - Theme Phantom

Helios | Modern Responsive Theme for Ghost - $18

Helios has great out of the box support for videos. Checkout the demo post with a YouTube and Vimeo video. All About Ghost - Theme - Helios

Boots - $19

So far Boots is my favorite Ghost Theme. I love how the developers have been creative to set the Boots theme apart from the others. For example checkout the demo of boots here and look at the slideshow, dynamic top menu, tabs in pages, etc. They have done a fantastic job theming Ghost. And last but not least I quote from their demo "Just in case it's not clear. You can use ANY Bootstrap elements in your theme". Pretty cool and exciting stuff!

GhostScroll - FREE

is a great theme for the one page websites that have become so popular. Instead of having multiple pages on your site, you can have one long one where links just scroll you down the page.
