In Michel Fortin’s PHP Markdown Extra, footnotes link to something like http://www.chickensinenvelopes.net/#fn:978.1 on the main page, with the ‘978’ denoting the post and the ‘1’ denoting the number of the footnote. This means each footnote goes to a unique link.
Markdown on Save, however, has the same footnote link to http://www.chickensinenvelopes.net/#fn:1, which is fine for the first footnote of the front page but rapidly leads to footnotes not going where you think they will in later posts.
Can this bug be addressed in the next version of Markdown on Save?
Seconded! I’ve been using Markdown on Save for some time on my blog, and I also use footnotes in the vast majority of my posts. This makes the footnotes in posts pretty non-functional on the homepage, unfortunately.
