About this theme

Source is the default theme in Ghost, and the easiest way to get started publishing content.

As Ghost's default theme, Source no matter your style of writing, through a set of thoughtful style and personalization options.

Background color

You can set any background color for your site. Once chosen, your text color will adapt automagically to optimize your content for readability ✨


Select from three different font styles —  modern sans-serif, elegant serif and consistent mono.

Homepage header styles

Source makes it as straightforward as possible to get started, by letting you choose from four unique homepage layouts that cover the most common use-cases we see.

Highlight and Magazine styles are perfect for content-rich publications, while Landing and Search are a more versatile choice for publications of all types – newsletters, blogs, docs, and more.
