Civil Footnotes
[resolved] Civil Footnotes CSS Font Color (6 posts)

    After testing out a few different footnote plugins, I definitely prefer Civil Footnotes. However, I haven't figured out how to change the CSS for the plugin (despite changing it for the theme and most of the rest of the site). I've played around and googled topics for an hour or so, but I've come up with nothing so far.

    I need to change the font color because the footnotes pop up as gray text on a teal background, like on this page. It looks bad and is barely legible.

    If anyone could copy and paste some sample code, I'd be so appreciative. I've tried editing the plugin's php file and adding the footnote class to my theme's css stylesheet to no avail so far.

    Thanks.

    Are you referring to the hover text that appears when you hover the cursor over the footnote's link? If so, there is no way to change that; it is set by the OS.

    I'm referring to the color of the text of the footnote when clicked, not the hover text.

    Screenshot example.

    I need to either change the font color or background color, which appears to default to my theme's background color.

    Thanks.

    I'm not sure what you're doing to achieve that with your footnotes, but that popover is not a feature of this plugin.

    I also can't reproduce it when I visit your site. Do you have a browser plugin installed that might be giving you those popovers?

    Yup. It was a Safari browser extension. Should have thought about that prior and tested on another browser. Thanks for answering.
