Removing "Subscribe" from Ghost 4.0

Ghost recently released Ghost 4.0 and with it came a "Subscribe" button and a "Subscribe" footer on every blog post. This does not match the "Just some information on the internet" blogging model of

It is not obvious how to turn these features off, and even when you do, some features are left behind cluttering up the HTML.

In the Settings -> Membership, change Subscription access to "Nobody".

Set "Subscription access" to "Nobody"

Despite not allowing subscriptions, pesky "Subscribe" buttons and forms are left behind in the default Casper theme. These can be hidden by going to "Settings" -> "Code injection" and applying the following CSS in the Site Header:

<style type='text/css'>
    /* Hide the Membership aka Subscribe actions etc. */
    .footer-cta { display: none; }
Inject CSS into every web page
