BaseBlog theme - Article summary excerpts markdown problem

BaseBlog theme -
In the article summary excerpts the markdown is not formatting - but it is hidden.
Elsewhere it works fine (although would be nice if it supported β€” for emdash).

The excerpt() method removes all formatting. If you need formatted text, you could use str::excerpt with $htmlremove set to false, or str::short, instead:

<?php echo str::excerpt($page->text()->kirbytext(), 120, false) ?>

Thanks so much for clearing that up for me. I’ll use the description field instead for article summaries.

this hint would be nice at Docs > excerpt($text, $length = 140, $mode = β€˜chars’)
