Support » Plugin: Easy Footnotes » Two big problems

  • I’m surprised this is so popular. Two big problems for starters:

    1. Moves numbers out too far to the left.
    2. Footnotes should be smaller than the main text of a page.

    Hi there,

    Thanks for leaving a review. With Easy Footnotes I tried to keep the styling to an absolute minimum so the plugin will rely on the styles set up in the theme. But I do have several classes used throughout the plugin that can be targeted to customize the styles yourself.

    1. Moves numbers out too far to the left.

    This sounds like your ol elements in your theme probably have no left padding or the list-style-position is set to outside as opposed to inside. Or both. This article shows the difference between the two list-style-position options.

    2. Footnotes should be smaller than the main text of a page.

    I tried to leave font sizes up to the theme for determining the size of the footnotes. I didn’t want the plugin to dictate the size because I would never be able to cover every theme. For example, a theme using a small font-size for the copy could make the footnotes unreadable if they were to be smaller.

    To adjust font-size you could create a CSS rule for .easy-footnotes-wrapper or .easy-footnote-single and set the font-size to your desired value. This makes sure by default the footnotes are readable while also giving the theme control over exactly how they’re presented.

    Let me know if you have any questions, or if either of these methods don’t solve your problems.

    Thanks,
    Jason
