    I couldn't see any footnote numbers on the site linked in your earlier comment. Your tooltips appear to be associated with a different plugin (Explanatory Dictionary?).

    Not sure what the problem is, but here's a quick checklist:

    • Confirm that you've placed the Side Matter widget in your sidebar.
    • Make sure any needed page/post types (i.e. home page, single post, etc.) are checked on the Side Matter options menu under Settings > Reading.
    • Enclose any note text on your page with the ref shortcode: [ref]Note text here[/ref].
    • If your site still isn't working, the issue is likely caused by your theme or another plugin.
