Turns footnotes into sidenotes, magically positioning each note in the sidebar next to its corresponding reference in the text.
Side Matter turns footnotes into sidenotes, magically aligning each note in the sidebar next to its corresponding reference in the text. Easily add citations, digressions, or editorial remarks to pages and posts with a simple shortcode and widget. Scholars, editors, and writers of all kinds will find the plugin of particular use.
Sidenotes have been used in printed texts for centuries, and are equally at home on the Web. Unlike hyperlinked footnotes, sidenotes do not require a jump down the page to look up each reference; instead, they perch humbly and accessibly beside the material to which they refer.
Side Matter includes an options menu as well as a set of built-in classes for styling with CSS. To use, place the Side Matter widget in your sidebar, then enclose sidenote text in a page or post using the
[ref] shortcode, like so:
Here's the text to annotate.[ref]Note text goes here.[/ref]
