Markdown Guide Extension

  • Version: 1.5
  • Author: Carson Sasser (
  • Build Date: 17 January 2012
  • Requirements: Tested on Symphony CMS versions 2.0.6, 2.0.7 and 2.1.1. Requires version 1.11 of the Markdown Text Formatter extension.


  1. Install the files and assets directory in a folder named 'markdown_guide' inside your Symphony 'extensions' folder.

  2. Enable it by selecting Markdown Guide in the System -> Extensions menu, choose Enable from the with-selected menu, and then click Apply.

  3. Now a button for showing the condensed guide will appear below any textarea field that uses one of the markdown text formatter options.


  • Add additional styling when I figure out why the styling interferes with the operation of the show-hide toggle.
