Liked It!
By , for WP 3.6.1

As a noncoder myself, I have to agree with Oscar when he says above; "works great on pages and posts". Wish the author would keep it updated.

Works as described; simple and elegant; needs CSS added, though
By , for WP 3.5.1

Well done, in spite of Covi's comments from December of 2012.

I like that this works well with WP Post to PDF, too (including my own hacks to that plugin). The minor nit with the pdf output is that the separator line seems to be getting lost, but I'll look into that.

CSS additions were a must for me. This could be an issue for more basic users who don't fiddle with theme code or CSS at all. I'm using a child theme, so this was relatively simple. I tweaked John's "suggested" CSS a bit, too:

sup.footnote a {
  text-decoration: underline;
  vertical-align: super;
  font-weight: bold;
  font-size: 80%;

(I wanted to make the footnote number stand out a bit more, and make it look more like a link.)

Bravo, John. Nice work. A few $$ to follow.

A scientist's dream
By , for WP 3.4.2

I pasted in a huge scientific reference, with multiple authors, lots of parentheses for dosages used in their study, and an abstract. At first, it choked, but then I realized it was my fault: I just pasted from the source.
The fix: I used the button to "paste as plain text" and voila! Only a number appeared, and the whole huge footnote is down there at the bottom. Very cool. I'm donating, you've made my life much easier!

Javascript intrusive, not accessible, not standard; html and php mixed... one star.

Works as expected.
By , for WP 3.4.2

The only thing I'm missing is the option to automatically insert some CSS into the theme.

almost completely satisfied
By , for WP 3.3.2

works great on pages and posts, but there seems to be a conflict when printing with Print Friendly and PDF: then the footnotes do not show...
