  • Thank you for your help.

    I go to Dashboard/Appearance/Editor

    and on the right hand side I only see one style.css, could you tell me where to look for the other one?


    Thank you!

    Yes, it’s true the reviewer doesn’t tell us where he pasted it from.

    Thanks for suggesting the save as option. I tried to saving the document as: webpage, webpage filter, single file webpage, open document text. Unfortunatly non of them worked.

    I tired to find the source code of my document with an online Word to HTML converter but it didn’t work. This is the tool
    I am not even sure I used it correctly.

    Here is an example of 5 footnotes I just added manually on a normal webpage (not a blog post):

    The first five footnotes (1-5) are added manually. The footnotes from 6-16 are added automatically through copy and paste from a word file. As you can notice the footnote number in the text of the footnote 1-5 footnotes looks like a regular number–it is not superscript. The other 6-16 are in square brackets. Also, you can notice that the actual 1-5 footnotes at the bottom of the page are in the footer of the page (left hand side, hard to find and hard to read), not in the body (but you can click them and expand them but of course they are hard to read because they are on the footer); whereas, the actual 6-16 footnotes are in the body of the page.

    You can compare this webpage to this blog post:

    Here you’ll see that the FD Footnotes plugin somewhat works as advertised if I insert footnotes manually. The first two footnotes are inserted manually, the 3-5 footnotes are copied from word and appear in square bracket. The good thing is that, here at least the actual footnotes at the bottom do not appear in the footer, but on the body of the blog page. However they are still not superscripted.

    What does this mean: “Is the sup tag being added and styled properly”? I do not know what a sup tag is.

    Thanks for suggesting other footnotes plugins but except for the FD Footnotes, the others are all for WordPress previous versions. I tried a 4.30 and it doesn’t work.

    Thank you for replying to my questions, Lorro.

    You’re right, there is nowhere in the plugin’s note a statement about cutting and pasting. I assumed that it was possible because someone in the reviews said the following:

    “I pasted in a huge scientific reference, with multiple authors, lots of parentheses for dosages used in their study, and an abstract. At first, it choked, but then I realized it was my fault: I just pasted from the source.
    The fix: I used the button to “paste as plain text” and voila! Only a number appeared, and the whole huge footnote is down there at the bottom. Very cool. I’m donating, you’ve made my life much easier!” Here is the link to this comment

    I did as he recommended: on the webpage that I am editing I right clicked on the page I want to paste the text on and selected on the menu that appears “paste as plain text” (however, to have the option “paste as plain text” appearing on the menu, the editing page cannot be blank, it has to have some text in there). However, when I do that, the footnote disappear instead of being added as this person suggests. Any advice? Also, do you know what this person may mean by “I just pasted from the source?”

    Yes, I think you are correct, the numbers in brackets are coming from word.


    When I add footnotes manually, the brackets disappear and the superscript number appears when I do that on blog pages; however, not on webpages. On webpages the superscript number is at the line of the text, not above it (superscripts). Do you know why there is a difference between blog and webpages footnote?

    Can you recommend a better footnote plugin for webpages and wordpress 4.31

    I really appreciate your help


    Can you specify where you would add this code? E.g. After what line of code and line number?

    And, if you indulge me for one more support question, I cannot make the plug-in work well. I cut and pasted text from Microsoft word with footnotes but I get classic cumbersome footnotes style (I get this [5], instead of the footnote being smaller and more on top and with no brackets as shown here I have to manually enter the footnote to get the plugin style. Also, do you know if this plugin also works on non-blog pages, namely normal webpages? I ask because on normal webpages the footnote goes on footer of the page instead of the body of the page and makes it look very strange.


    Thank you Augustin. I probably wasn’t specific enough.

    I am not talking about Blog post pages, I am talking about normal web pages such as this one:

    If I use the Divi builder on this page the comments box at the bottom of this page disappears, why?



    Ok, on the edit page, I went on “Divi Page Settings” and clicked “full width” and the “The Default Editor” published page deleted the side bar and now I have the comment box at the end of the page. Great!

    All I need not is to be able to use the Divi builder with comments. Is this a possible option? I would think so, right? Is so how, since when I use the Divi builder the comment box at the end of the page disappear? (Maybe I’ll right a new post on the wordpress support page as the subject has changed a bit here, but you can answer here to if you like



    If I create a new page from scratch and don’t try to make comments appear on pages already built, I can make comments appear on the new page. However, only if I use “The Default Editor” and not the “Divi Builder.”

    When I use “The Default Editor” and publish the page, the published page has the Blog sidebar; whereas, when I use the “Divi Builder” the sidebar disappears and with that also the comments box at the bottom disappear.

    Is there a way to use the “Divi Builder,” have no Blog side bar, and have comments at the bottom of the page?


    Anyone can help?


    Ok, so I went within the post itself (not just the blog window) but on the window where I can modify the post, and did on the upper right hand corner click on SCREEN OPTIONS and mark the box “Discussion” and then I scroll down and cross “Allow Comments.”

    For some strange reason, these boxes were not ticked. I donno y?

    Anyway, I am happy a got that fixed; however, my original intention was to add comments to a PAGE not a BLOG post, specifically to this page.

    Can someone help?


    Thank you RepottingHacks,

    I checked that out and the “allow comments” box is ticked.

    So nothing has changed for me, still having no comments appearing.

    But I am happy for you! 😉

    Well, now the comment section has disappeared from the blog page when I deleted the latin text that the blog page came in with.

    Help please


    I just noticed that comments are showing on my blog but not on the page that I want comment to appear on, namely this page:

    Can you tell me why comments are showing on the blog page but not on any other pages and what should I do?
