  • I also wanted numeric links so I hacked up a version of this plugin for my own use. A few changes to the bigfoot.js and the bigfoot-default.css files were needed to get the output to use numbers.

    I outline the changes on my blog at:

    I would love that too!

    jonathanbird, thank you for your contribution, but I could not succeed, even following all the steps you described. The circle contain no number inside, but three dots (…) in vertical position, one over the other. I do not know how to make it work.

    Here is the bigfoot-default.css file I have after making changes to the other files:

    I should probably submit to plugin dev?

    Sorry, I just re-diffed the files to double check the post and I forgot that I made one other change to the bigfoot.js file. I have updated my post to reflect the change.

    Sorry about that.

    JonathanBird, I think there’s a mistake in the css in your gist where:

    .footnote-button:before {
      content: attr(data-footnote-number);

    should be

    .footnote-button:before {
      content: attr(data-footnote-identifier);

    Either that or I did something else wrong. Either way, that worked for me.

    I got it working on my website relatively easily.

    Replace the .css and .js files with the ones I put in the following gist:

    Great stuff guys, thanks for the help.

    Anyone know how to make the buttons fully round and not pill-shaped?

    Also, I seem to be getting a text number behind my buttons. Any ideas?


    You mean more like this?

    Take a look at the css properties on the right of the screenshot and change your css file accordingly.

    Or just copy mine from cocoapatterns




    Thanks to everyone for the various tips. I have got the plugin working successfully. I want to add one more functionality: if I click on the backlink, I want to go the corresponding spot in the post. How to do this?

    Any help will be appreciated.



    The only issue is that this fix doesn’t incorporate “numberResetSelector” in order to reset the footnote count on index pages. As a result, on pages with multiple posts, the footnotes keep counting up (i.e. the first footnote on a post which followed another post with two footnotes will be “3”).

    I tried addressing this to no avail on my installation. Anyone have any ideas on how to fix this?
