Text Formatting in Kirby

Hey I’ve added content as a text area in Kirby. When I look at it in the panel it is formatted well but when I look on the front end all the formatting is stripped.

Is there something I need to add so I can get WYSIWYG editing?

You have to render the field with the kirbytext()/kt() method:

echo $page->fieldname()->kt();

Kirby has a lot of field method for modifying, converting field values, see

That works in some capacity however it doesn’t include line breaks etc.

It should. what exactly does not render? Please post the markdown you are using and the result of applying kirbytext() on that text as it appears in dev tools inspector.
