Casper https://lacymorrow.com/casper A Ghost-like WordPress theme Tue, 04 Sep 2018 04:40:46 +0000 en hourly 1 https://wordpress.org/?v=4.9.8 https://lacymorrow.com/casper/wp-content/uploads/2018/09/logo-150x150.png Casper https://lacymorrow.com/casper 32 32 151213358 Welcome to Casper WP! https://lacymorrow.com/casper/posts/welcome-to-casper-wp/ Tue, 04 Sep 2018 04:40:46 +0000 http://lacymorrow.com/casper/?p=17 … ]]> You’re live! Nice. 🙂 This is the Casper WP theme, a port of the gorgeous default theme from the Ghost blogging platform. This is a short demonstration of the features. This blog post was written in Markdown, the language used by Ghost, and uses the Jetpack Markdown plugin for parsing (for demonstration, not required).

Getting Started

Ghost uses something called Markdown for writing. Essentially, it’s a shorthand way to manage your post formatting as you write! Writing in Markdown is really easy. In the left hand panel of Ghost, you simply write as you normally would. Where appropriate, you can use shortcuts to style your content. For example, a list:

  • Item number one
  • Item number two
  • A nested item
  • A final item

or with numbers!

  1. Remember to buy some milk
  2. Drink the milk
  3. Tweet that I remembered to buy the milk, and drank it

Links

Want to link to a source? No problem. If you paste in url, like http://ghost.org – it’ll automatically be linked up. But if you want to customise your anchor text, you can do that too! Here’s a link to the Ghost website. Neat.

What about Images?

Images work too! Already know the URL of the image you want to include in your article? Simply paste it in like this to make it show up:The Ghost LogoNot sure which image you want to use yet? That’s ok too. Leave yourself a descriptive placeholder and keep writing. Come back later and drag and drop the image in to upload:

Quoting

Sometimes a link isn’t enough, you want to quote someone on what they’ve said. It was probably very wisdomous. Is wisdomous a word? Find out in a future release when we introduce spellcheck! For now – it’s definitely a word.

Wisdomous – it’s definitely a word.

Ready for a Break?

Throw 3 or more dashes down on any new line and you’ve got yourself a fancy new divider. Aw yeah.


Working with Code

Got a streak of geek? We’ve got you covered there, too. You can write inline code blocks really easily with back ticks. Want to show off something more comprehensive? 4 spaces of indentation gets you there. .awesome-thing { display: block; width: 100%; }
