Civil Footnotes
[resolved] Problem in dislaying in homepage (2 posts)

    If the first footnote (or the very few first footnotes) comes after a few words of the post, and these footnotes are reasonably long (which frequently happen), and I am displaying (automatically extracted) excerpts in the homepage (as well as archive, search, etc pages), then the footnote(s) word are counted in the excerpt's words count, which result in displaying the excerpt in unbalanced very short look, ending at the first footnote occurrence after just 4 or 5 words. The original plugin "WP-Footnotes" has had an option to disable footnotes in homepage, search, archive, etc page so that the footnotes' content is no more counted as part of the excerpt.

    I would be grateful and thankful if you could some solution for this problem.

    Many thanks,
    Kri Kab

    I'm very sorry to hear of your troubles. At this time, I have no plans to add an options page to Civil Footnotes. If WP-Footnotes suits your needs, I'd suggest you keep using it. I realize Civil Footnotes is opinionated and may not suit everyone, but it is what it is.
