Simple Footnotes
[resolved] Using hooks (3 posts)

    I'm just learning php and can see the awesome power off hooks. I've checked the plugin file and I don't see that the footnotes are added to the page using a hook, but are just appended to the page content.

    I'm making a page template and it would be awesome if I could determine exactly where I want the footnotes to be placed. At the moment I have some stuff that needs to appear on many pages after the page content but before the footnotes, and I can't see any way to do that (except by adding it to each page manually, which I'm not going to do).

    I want to load the footnotes onto the genesis_after_post_content hook and set its priority, but I can't currently see any way to do that.

    Hi oldmankit,

    I just stumbled upon your request here.
    We're currently in heavy development of our own footnotes plugin, as a lot of footnotes plugins don't receive updates or community attention..

    https://wordpress.org/plugins/footnotes/
    Our Plugin works with hooks and you can already customize, if the references should appear at the end of your post, before the footer of your wordpress site or inside a widget. A shortcode for placing the references list anywhere is planned.

    Our plugin is compatible with this plugin, as you can set the [ref] shortcode to be used. So you wouldn't loose all your precious footnotes if you consider switching.

    Hi there Mark,

    Thanks very much for mentioning that. I had a try of your plugin and it's looking very nice. I'm going to stick with simple footnotes since I've managed to get it to behave as I want, and have spent some time styling the appearance of it.

    One of my bug-bears with simple footnotes was that it inserted a space before the number of the footnote (I'm talking about the link in the text which will send you to the bottom of the page). I had to go into theme files itself to remove this space. I and some other users thought it should be built-in as an option: 'insert space before numbered link'.

    I'm mentioning this because I can see that in your plugin there is both a space before the number and a bracket after, and I couldn't see any options to remove either!

    Anyway, thanks again.
    Kit
