Markdown Extra plugin for b2evolution
I love Markdown and use it for all my blogs independent of blog-system (I currently use WordPress, Serendipity and b2evolution and Markdown is perfect in that sense). It’s lightweight and beats any WYSIWYG editor on the market ;)
There was a Markdown plugin for b2evo, but it didn’t work with the new plugin API (and the author hadn’t updated the post since 2004) so I decided to make one myself.
The .zip contains everything you need, including the PHP Markdown Extra package by Michel Fortin
Click here to download the plugin
- Unzip the plugin and upload the files to your b2evolution /plugin/ folder.
- In admin navigate to App settings -> Plugins, find Markdown Extra and click ‘Install’.
- If you want to enable Markdown for comments, you do this in the plugin configuration
That’s it. Let me know if you experience any problems.

there are no changes in the back office. You just start using it in the editor. Use the mardown syntax when writing text.

Thanks heaps! This is the one plugin I was really worried about upgrading from b2 0.9 to 2.4.1. One wget and an [Install] click later and I’ve got markdown back. You rock.
