Theme Customization

Add your custom styles to assets/css/custom.css to make future theme updates easy without overwriting your own code.

Theme Translation

Korima translation file is only available in english only, to add new language duplicate this file korima/locales/en.json and rename with your own language/lacale tag (e.g.: es for Spanish, fr for French, zh for Chinese, ja for Japanese). Please ensure you are using ISO 639-1 Language Codes.

Edit the renamed translation file with any plain text editor. Usually they manage the international UTF-8 encoding well.

An example with optional features (see the related section below) such as placeholders for flexibility, is the complete default English file en.json for Korima.


    "with the email address": "with the email address",
    "By <a href='{href}'>{name}</a>": "By <a href='{href}'>{name}</a>",


As you can see, it's usually just plain English on the left, and put the language you choose on the right. Any code is optional and not required.

Enable Blog language

Simply verify that the .json translation file for your active theme is in place, and then activate the language:

Ghost's Settings > General > Publication language

Just enter the language/locale tag of the files and click on the Save settings button.

Members / Subscription

Subscribers can be enabled via a checkbox on the Labs page Settings > Labs > Members (BETA), in your Ghost admin panel:

  • Login into admin section of your ghost blog
  • Click Settings > Labs > Members (BETA)
  • Check the box for Enable Members, under the Enable Beta Features.

Once enabled, different parts of the theme will appear:

  • Login In and Sign Up buttons in the header.
  • Footer subscription form.
  • Call to action section in Post page to encourage visitors to subscribe if the post is set to Members only.

In order for the blog to fully supports member sign up flows and subscriptions, within the theme folder is a routes.yaml file. Upload this single file using Routes on the Labs page.

To edit plans features, you can edit the members/signup.hbs file. For more information about Members, connecting Stripe and setting the package price, I highly recommend checking the official Ghost documentation

Social Media Links

Ghost supports adding Facebook and Twitter profile URLs from the admin panel. Go to General > Social accounts and add your URLs. This will update Facebook and Twitter URLs within the footer social media section.

For using other social accounts, copy the code below for each social media icon that you want to add into the file partials/social-icons.hbs

<a href="URL" target="_blank" rel="noopener">{{> "icons/ICON_NAME"}}</a>

Here a list of social media icons that we provide to replace ICON_NAME:

  • Behance
  • Dribbble
  • Flickr
  • Foursquare
  • Github
  • Instagram
  • Medium
  • Pinterest
  • Reddit
  • Skype
  • Snapchat
  • Soundcloud
  • Tumblr
  • Twitch
  • Vimeo
  • Vk
  • Xing
  • Youtube

Then replace URL with your social media link and ICON_NAME with social media icon we provide

Here is an example code if you want to add 3 new social media links into your blog

<a href="" target="_blank" rel="noopener">{{> "icons/instagram"}}</a>

<a href="" target="_blank" rel="noopener">{{> "icons/pinterest"}}</a>

<a href="" target="_blank" rel="noopener">{{> "icons/dribbble"}}</a>

Social media links should be placed in the partials/social-icons.hbs file.
