Html or markdown in frontmatter not parsing

Hi all, and thanks in advance for any help…

I’ve built a portfolio in gatsby and have been using Netlify cms. I’m trying to get the site to display markdown or html in the frontmatter, for example adding a simple bolded word in

title: My **Portfolio**
description: <span>Awesome</span> works from me

But its not parsing at all and is displaying the HTML and markdown in the site. I’m using the gatsby-starter-netlify-cms template as the base with pretty much nothing majorly different. Does anyone have any ideas on how to get it to work?


In order to do this, you’re going to need to edit how blog posts are handled. The template doesn’t inherently do this for you.

It’ll need quite a bit of engineering! Given that this is a Gatsby template, it might be a feature you wish to share with the Gatsby team.
