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.
