Due to mobiledoc-kit bugs, typing and pasting of Chinese, Japanese, and Korean languages is not working properly.

I just read about this and it's ridiculous that the issue has been there for 2 years

Fairly easy to template and even hack, as long as You self-host, but being implemented in NodeJS, it is not very easy on the system resources. As for front-end, the website will also use above-average amount of RAM through user's/visitor's browser. Authoring basic content is comfortable on the web as well as mobile, it is not for video, though. Although an MIT licensed OpenSource, it directly promotes commercial services, which fuels development and yields reliable documented integrations but disqualifies it from the FOSS label. Effectively, Ghost is a content platform allowing for ad and/or paywall based monetization. The easiest way, though, is to use partners ghost suggests, paying their fees. Cloud hosting offered directly id cheap at entry level but priced per paying member volume, so their "no revenue shares" claim is misleading. The software is ideal for creative/marketing agencies, reselling Ghost hosting and using one integrator across multiple instances.

You have to pay a monthly fee as a subscription, which starts from $ 9 (billed annually). That’s a high price compared to Kirby for example, which costs a one time fee of € 99 + VAT. Not to speak of all those free content management systems.

Install is complicated and doesn't play well with Apache at all. Would like to see a future version play nicely with apache. Really easy to build themes for.
