Footnotes for WordPress
better formatting (2 posts)

    Hi Charles,

    Thanks for a great plugin. Just a few suggestions / requests in the formatting department:

    1. Could it be optional to have the square brackets around the footnotes?
    2. It'd be good if the footnote indicator was included purely with CSS (so it's easily overridden) or just not included. Seems like unnecessary markup - I'm having to hide it with something like #content sup a { display: none; } followed by #content sup a.footnoted { display: inline; } !
    3. Again, could the numbers in the actual notes at the end be optional?

    I really appreciate plugin authors putting concise bits of markup in so we can do extra things with the styling, but some of the markup here seems to get in the way of a "minimalist" approach. I know some of the things are CSS and can be overridden, but again, it'd be nice to have an elegant but bare-bones setup as a starting point, and maybe an options page for putting extras in.

    Anyway, I know what it's like as a plugin author, so no pressure. Still appreciating the work you've done :)

    Hmm, the JS "floating notes" are another matter... I don't know, is this someone else's code you've folded into your plugin? Really difficult to style!

    Worst thing is the amount of inline styles, which of course can't be overridden. Especially when they're as bad as this:

    <div class="note-label" style="float: right; margin: 0 3px 2px; padding: 0 3px; height: 11px; font-size: 12px; line-height: 12px; ">

    Height 1px less than the font size and line height?!

    Anyway, I'm pressing on. Any improvements in how these notes are generated would be fantastic :)
