Support » Plugin: footnotes » mobile footnotes

  • I noticed that, when viewed in the mobile version of my site, the footnote superscript numbers are not links, as they are in the desktop version of the site. Is this a glitch that I’m experiencing or just the way the plugin is designed? If it’s the latter, can I modify it to work the same on the mobile and desktop sites? Thanks!

  • Hi,

    I am really sorry for the delay. The footnotes in general aren’t real links. They are just superscripts. The functionality to link to another element is done using javascript. I have just tried the footnotes on my mobile device and they worked as they should. May it be possible that your mobile device has javascript disabled? Which mobile device are you using? (iPhone, iPad, Samsung, …)

    I’m using Chrome on a Nexus 7. I checked the Chrome settings and javascript is enabled. I liked the idea, though!

    Here’s a page with footnotes from my site.

    I noticed something else today that might be helpful. I’m using a responsive theme so if I’m on a computer viewing my site and I make the browser window small enough, it switches to the mobile version. I’m experiencing the same issue (not able to click the superscript number to be taken to the full footnote) here. I also tested it in Internet Explorer and had the same experience.
