    That depends entirely on what your definition of ‘sidenotes’ is.

    The footnotes are very well marked up with CSS classes and ids so you should be able to lay them out on your page however you like (within the limitations of CSS). In this sense it should be trivial to produce ‘sidenotes’ with a little CSS knowledge.

    Of course whether it’s possible to do exactly what you envisage using CSS is uncertain.

    What I have in mind is a note appearing in the right sidebar next to where it is inserted in the post. I know a little css but not enough to know how to do that. Can you give any clues?

    I suspect what you’re after is probably not possible with WP-Footnotes (the notes would still need to appear as a group), and in fact what you want is most likely achievable without any plugin at all.

    You could add each note to your post inside a span tag with a class of ‘sidenote’ then add the following CSS;


    .sidnote {float:right; width: 20%;}

    That would achieve something close to what you want, but would probably more accurately be described as ‘pull quotes’.

    That’s probably the best I can do, sorry.
