Support » Plugin: Blank Footnotes » Footnotes in custom field ?

  • Hi there,

    Thank you for a very good plugin ! It does a good job combined with a PDF creation plugin which was a requirement for the site I am currently working on.

    Aside form that, I would like my footnotes to be stored in a custom field. That would enable me to have more control on their display on pages.

    Until now, I have note been able to make the Blank Footnotes shortcodes work when they are added to a custom field. I have tried several workarounds without success :
    <?php echo do_shortcode(get_post_meta(get_the_ID(), 'name', true)); ?>
    or a function as described here :
    https://www.advancedcustomfields.com/resources/acfformat_value/
    Is there anything specific to the plugin ? Could you kindly advise me on this ?

    Many thanks !

    The footnotes displayed correctly in the PDF was one of the reasons that prompted me to create this plugin.

    For custom fields there is no function at the time, I’m sorry.
    The plug-in is a simple regular expression in the content post, lika markdown mode in jetpack plugin.
    I will see whether to implement it in the future.

    Thanks

    I’m sorry for my bad english
