    A lot of functionality but no examples of how to use it. I don’t know if it’s all-in-one or even if it’s working at all because I couldn’t figure out how to make it work.
    Guys put some effort into explaining how to use your plugin.

    I’m sorry to learn that you are having trouble retrieving how to add inline footnotes.

    Did you check out the plugin’s description in the Plugin Directory?

    https://wordpress.org/plugins/footnotes/#description

    Also, the last tab on the plugin’s settings page aims to provide a brief how-to.

    Assuming that you will be using Footnotes out of the box, the syntax goes:

    Your blog post text ending in the word that the footnote anchor should display after((The content of that footnote, bracketed with double parentheses.)) and here your blog post resumes.

    Please let us know if that makes sense to you, and how you would expect the instructions for use to be provided.

    Sorry again for the inconvenience.

    Of course I’ve seen it. That’s not enough.
    What if I want to show some text instead of suggested symbols as a link to footnote?
    What if I want to show footnote in a popup window?
    There’s a lot of settings in your plugin so I don’t even know if that’s possible. Is it?

    Just put some examples, not just simple ones.
    How it looks like on front and how to make it in the back.

    What if I want to show some text instead of suggested symbols as a link to footnote?

    The suggested symbols are for the backlink, so yes you may input some text in the textbox after the select box. A non-empty text input field content overrides the selection.

    (The reason why the backlink symbol, despite being displayed in the reference container, is configured under the second tab of the Footnotes settings page, about Referrers and tooltips, is that in this plugin, settings cannot change tab, and this tabs initial name was about styling.)

    What if I want to show footnote in a popup window?

    The Footnotes plugin cannot trigger popup windows, neither system popups nor modal popups, but what it does is display rich tooltips on hovering footnote anchors.

    If your question is about having footnotes in a popup window, then the answer depends on the popup plugin used. Footnotes supports Popup Maker from Code Atlantic since it has been requested by a Footnotes user.
