Ghost is a perfect blogging tool if you love something minimalist. It offers no complex settings like, for instance, WordPress. Ghost also has a minimalist editor with minimal formatting options on each content element. For the text element, for instance, you can only set the heading level to maximum of level 2. There are no options to set heading level 3 or the lower levels. But it doesn’t mean you can’t add heading level 3 or lower when creating a blog post or sending a newsletter in Ghost. This post will show you how.
In case you didn’t know. The editor of Ghost is Markdown-based. It recognizes the raw Markdown formatting syntaxes and instantly convert the raw syntaxes into the format you meant to. For instance, when you type
**bold** on the editor, it will turn the text into a bold format.
You can also implement the concept above to add H3 or lower on a blog post. In Markdown itself, you can use the following syntaxes to add heading:
- #[space]Heading level 1
- ##[space]Heading level 2
- ###[space]Heading level 3
- ####[space]Heading level 4
- #####[space]Heading level 5
- ######[space]Heading level 6
Heading is an important element to add especially when you write a long-form blog post. You can use a heading to emphasis the point you want to convey on the associated heading.
