So you want to add a Flattr button to Ghost?
You’ve read this post Adding a Flattr button to Ghost by Jeremy Pope but it just doesn’t work?
I had the same problem!
But here’s how you can make it work!
The Wrong Way
There’s nothing really wrong with Jeremy Pope way. I guess the post is just old and the Ghost code changed.
I had all kinds of problems with this way of implementing it.
The Right Way
But actually it’s very easy to implement a Flattr button in your page
You really don’t need to know a lot of coding.
Just open up the file “post.hbs” in a notepad/texteditor and and put the following lines of code wherever you want the button to show up!
Now, don’t forget to make your changes!!
In this code change YOURFLATTRUSERNAME (user_id=) to your own username
And change language to your own language code, mine is language=nl_NL
nl_NL is for Dutch, The Netherlands
en_GB is for English, Great Britain
en_US is for English, US
Save the file, zip the theme and upload it to your ghost CMS!
And don’t forget to flattr this post 🙂
Did you know you can host your own Ghost blog on your own Digital Ocean server?
