How to make a static page in Ghost before it’s supported

Currently Ghost only supports blog posts, according to the roadmap version 0.4 is meant to introduce support for pages, but it seems to be a bit behind schedule. If you know express or even just Node, you can hack your Ghost blog like I did, but that makes it unupgradeable.

In the meantime here is what you can do to avoid that problem:

1) Save a draft

2) Copy its url by clicking the gear icon next to “save draft” button

3) link to it from your template

Now you have a static page which is really an unpublished post hence it doesn’t appear in the blog post listing.

Viewable example here.
