Make sure you use WordPress 5 As alternative you need to install the Gutenberg plugin to use Ghost Kit.

Automatic installation

Automatic installation is the easiest option as WordPress handles the file transfers itself and you don’t need to leave your web browser. To do an automatic install of Ghost Kit, log in to your WordPress dashboard, navigate to the Plugins menu and click Add New.

In the search field type Ghost Kit and click Search Plugins. Once you’ve found our plugin you can view details about it such as the point release, rating and description. Most importantly of course, you can install it by simply clicking “Install Now”.

Manual installation

The manual installation method involves downloading our Ghost Kit plugin and uploading it to your webserver via your favourite FTP application. The WordPress codex contains instructions on how to do this here.

Часто задаваемые вопросы

How to disable enqueued plugins (JS, CSS) on frontend

There are some plugins, enqueued with Ghost Kit on your page. If you don’t like the plugin and/or want to change it to your alternate plugin, you can disable it using filters. Example:

add_filter( 'gkt_enqueue_plugin_font_awesome', '__return_false' );

Available filters:

  • gkt_enqueue_plugin_font_awesome
  • gkt_enqueue_plugin_object_fit_images
  • gkt_enqueue_plugin_jarallax
  • gkt_enqueue_plugin_swiper
  • gkt_enqueue_plugin_gist_simple
  • gkt_enqueue_plugin_scrollreveal
How to add templates in theme

You can add templates in your theme, so users will be able to insert it on pages with a single click. This is a simple example of theme templates structure:

  • wp-content/themes/YOUR_THEME/ghostkit/templates/

    • /first-template/
      • /content.php
      • /thumbnail.png
    • /second-template/
      • /content.php
      • /thumbnail.png

    content.php file content example:


    thumbnail.png is not required, but strongly recommended, because users will see what template will look like after insertion.

How to extend typography settings

By default Typography options used for Body, Headings, and Buttons. You can add custom options by extending typography using PHP filter:

add_filter( 'gkt_custom_typography', 'my_gkt_custom_typography' );
function my_gkt_custom_typography( $custom_typography ) {

    // Add typography options for `.my-selector`.
    $custom_typography['my-selector'] = array(
        'label' => esc_html__( 'My Selector', 'ghostkit' ),
        'defaults' => array(
            'font-family-category' => 'default',
            'font-family' => '',
            'font-size' => '',
            'font-weight' => '',
            'line-height' => '',
            'letter-spacing' => '',
        'output' => array(
                'selectors' => '.my-selector',
                'selectors' => '.editor-styles-wrapper .my-selector',
                'editor' => true,

    // Add typography options for `.my-selector-2` with Font Size and Font Weight control only.

                'selectors' => '.editor-styles-wrapper .my-selector-2',
                'editor' => true,

    return $icons;

        'name' => 'My Icons',
        'icons' => array(
                'class' => 'fab fa-500px',
                'keys' => '500px',
                'class' => 'fab fa-500px',
                'keys' => '500px',

    return $icons;

// add icons assets
// will be automatically added in Editor and Frontend
add_action( 'gkt_icons_enqueue_assets__my-icons-pack', 'my_gkt_icons_enqueue_assets' );
function my_gkt_icons_enqueue_assets( $icons ) {
    wp_register_script( 'my-icons-pack', plugins_url( '/assets/my-icons-pack/script.min.js', __FILE__ ), array(), '1.0.0' );

Feels lightweight, and neither like "themebuilder" themes, nor annoying visual page builders of Classic WordPress Editor era. An essential install for all Gutenberg WordPress sites I'm developing.
Like the ability to animate elements on scroll and good response from support to fine tune this. Would like to see a few other features such as post grids and accordion but can be used fine in conjunction with other plugins and I expect good development.
thank you very much for the effort. good minimal design. some of the larger competitors don't have support for tabs, that's how I luckily ended up with your plugin. keep up the good work
Amazing gutenberg plugin, I tested many of them: like Kadence Block, CoBlocks, Atomic, Advanced, Stackable – Gutenberg Blocks. None of them has such excelent grid system and fine interface as ghostkit. They all lack responsive settings. On an average site no need for other gutenberg plugins, as it includes everything needed. Thank you guys for this spencer
For the relatively lower number of active installs that this plugin has, it does things surprisingly better than other, more popular plugins. I installed it primarily for the Display extension, which worked very well on pre-existing blocks. I then started using the Accordion, and it gives me a much better UI than other accordion block plugins out there. Many thanks for making this plugin!
