Presets help you to set up typical interface layouts in seconds. Single pages, blogs, galleries and more are just a few keystrokes away.

Available Presets

Kirby ships with the following presets that you can use to get started. For fully customized layouts check out our layout guide.


For a typical single page setup (articles, projects, text pages, etc.), you can use the page preset.

title: Simple Page
preset: page
        label: Headline
        type: text
        label: Text
        type: textarea

This preset will automatically set up the form fields and a sidebar with subpages and files.

Besides defining form fields, you can also control the files and pages settings with this preset. Learn more…


A collection of pages, such as a blog, projects or a shop, often don't really need form fields or files, but more features to manage subpages. The pages preset is perfect for such page types.

title: Blog
preset: pages

You have a lot of additional options to configure the way subpages are displayed and which templates are allowed. Learn more…

title: Gallery
preset: files

The files preset can do a lot more to set up the ratio, size, image cropping and info of each card. Learn more…
