FD Footnotes Plugin

Add elegant looking footnotes to your posts simply and naturally.

This plugin provides an extremely easy way to add elegant looking footnotes to your posts. The syntax is natural, simple to understand, and degrades gracefully if the plugin is removed. Footnotes are linked unobtrusively and the note itself links back to the original text where the footnote is referenced.

Adding footnotes to a post is simple. Just type them inline in your post in square brackets like this:

 [1. This is a footnote.]

Each footnote must have a number followed by a period and a space and then the actual footnote. They don’t have to be unique but it is recommended. It doesn’t matter what the numbers are since the footnotes will be automatically renumbered when the post is displayed.

Footnotes can contain anything you’d like including links, images, etc. Footnotes are automatically linked back to the spot in the text where the note was made.

Settings

Only show footnotes on single post/page: This option will hide footnotes on the main blog page. Footnote numbers will still appear but link to the individual post/page URL.

Collapse footnotes until clicked: When checked, footnotes are hidden until manually expanded or a footnote number is clicked.

Note: Do not include square brackets [] inside the footnotes themselves.

Note: Footnote numbers don't need to be unique but it is recommended, especially if the text is identical for multiple footnotes. If you have multiple footnotes with the exact same text and number then you’ll get weird and incorrect footnotes on your post.
