CI Status npm version

Drop-in script to make the bulk of Ghost membership features work on any theme.


Ghost automatically injects Portal script on all sites running Ghost 4 or higher.

Alternatively, Portal can be enabled on non-ghost pages directly by inserting the below script on the page.

<script defer src="https://unpkg.com/@tryghost/portal@latest/umd/portal.min.js" data-ghost="https://mymemberssite.com"></script>

The data-ghost attribute expects the URL for your Ghost site, which is the only input Portal needs to work with your site's membership data via Ghost APIs.

Custom trigger button

By default, the script adds a default floating trigger button on the bottom right of your page which is used to trigger the popup on screen.

Its possible to add custom trigger button of your own by adding data attribute data-portal to any HTML tag on page, and also specify a specfic page to open from it by using it as data-portal=signup.

The script also adds custom class names to this element for open and close state of popup - gh-portal-open and gh-portal-close, allowing devs to update its UI based on popup state.

Refer the docs to read about ways in which Portal can be customized for your site.

  • Run yarn start:dev to start Portal in development mode
  • Open http://localhost:3000 to view it in the browser.
  • To use the local Portal script in a local Ghost site
    • Update config.local.json in Ghost repo to add "portal" config pointing to local dev server url as instructed on terminal.
    • By default, this uses port 5368 for loading local Portal script on Ghost site. It's also possible to specify a custom port when running the script using - --port=xxxx.
