Link Footnotes

Adds a footnotes section to your posts with any external links

  1. Upload the link-footnotes folder to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the 'Plugins' menu in WordPress
  3. It's on by default, so any posts and pages with external links will display footnotes once activated

Options

There are three options on the Settings -> Writing page.

Default On

Whether you want the footnotes to display by default or not. If cleared then the links will not be displayed even if there are external links. You can force the links to show even if it's turned off using meta fields (see below)

Heading

Text that you want to display above the list. By default this is <h2>Links</h2>

Link Target Anything in this field will be used as the target attribute in the links created for footnotes. For example, if you'd like to have all of the footnote links open in a new window you would enter _blank into the Link Target field.

Only the footnote links are affected. The links in the post itself are not touched.

Meta Fields

You can override the Default On setting by including either lf_on or lf_off meta fields in your post or page. The value for either field doesn't matter. As long as it's not blank then the meta tag will work.

Using lf_on will force the link list to show even if the default is not to show. lf_off will force the list not to show overriding the default.
