Simple and solid!

Thanks for a very easy-to-use plugin that performs as advertised!

Simple, easy-to-use footnote solution
By , for WP 4.1

I use footnotes on just about every post and page on my site. This plugin provides a simple, easy-to-use solution that doesn't interrupt the flow of my writing.

Good but flawed
By , for WP 4.1

I like the way it works. It makes footnotes very easy to do. Unfortunately, when you click on the footnote number, it takes you to the next number instead of the correct one. IOW, if you click 2, it takes you to footnote 3. You have to scroll back up to see the footnote.

Then, when you click on the arrow to return to the text of the article, it takes you to the line below where the footnote is instead of the line where the footnote is. (The're actually endnotes, since they appear at the bottom of the article.

I wish it was possible to mouse over the footnote number and see its text (like Word does.)

Simple and easy footnotes, work as expected, easy CSS customization
By , for WP 4.1

The title says it all - this plugin does exactly what I want, and is easy to customize if you have a child theme. I did the following tuning to get smaller footnotes and a wider black divider:

sup.footnote a {
		  text-decoration: underline;
		  vertical-align: super;
		  font-weight: bold;
		  font-size: 80%;
		  padding-left: 0.3em;

		.footnotedivider {
		  width: 40%;
		  padding-top: 0.8em;
		  border-top: 1px solid #000;

		.footnotes {
			font-size: 72%;

		.footnotes li {
		  line-height: 1em;

Thank you!

Brilliant solution
By , for WP 4.0.1

I was about to start building my own solution for footnotes, but then came across this plugin and it's built perfectly. Very easy and logical to use. Currently active on my site with some minor CSS to make the footnotes a bit more subtle: http://www.hughlashbrooke.com/2014/12/introducing-jetpack-contact-form-auto-reply - great stuff!

Does what it needs to

Liked It!

As a noncoder myself, I have to agree with Oscar when he says above; "works great on pages and posts". Wish the author would keep it updated.
