FAQ

How do I mark a footnote?

Enclose the text you want to make a note from with double parenthesis. For instance ((This text would be in the note.))

What does “Escape HTML Entities” do?

The “Escape HTML Entities” option will cause WordPress to escape the text for the HTML special characters before displaying it. This will turn characters like & into &.This is necessary if your characters are not already escaped. In most cases, this is not the case, as WordPress escapes those characters when they&aposre entered into the system. However, if things aren�t working right, you may need to turn this option on.

I’m seeing strange &’s with letters after where punctuation should be�

Turn “Escape HTML Entitees” off. (See above FAQ)
