The Markdown Field is a Kirby plugin made by Sylvain Julé. The syntax highlighting really helps while writing text in Markdown, it gives more structure and makes your text more readable. It also has nice features like displaying whitespace characters and creating links for pages on your site.


The buttons used for the text field:

  • Headings: h2, h3, h4, h5, h6
  • Bold, italic
  • Code
  • Strikethrough
  • Bullet or unordered list, numbered or ordered list
  • Horizontal rule
  • Image, file
  • Page link, link, email

Besides Markdown and KirbyText you can also use Markdown Extra in text fields, lots of options to format your text.


When using images in a text field include the set:default attribute, this will generate responsive images. For responsive images in the Columns Block you can use set:small.

(image:my-image.jpg set:default)

ZoON uses images up to 1200px wide the maximum upload size of images has been set at 1600px.
