I've been using this for many years. Still works.

Good plugin, still works well!

I like the plugin and it still works well.

I only had issues with it once when I was writing some LaTeX formulas because I used {{ ... }} somewhere which triggered the plugin's footnote expansion.

You can fix this bug by adding the last 4 lines (the upper two are provided as context) to the for each loop at the end of the php file for the plugin:

$foot_start = strpos($data, $foot_delim) + strlen($foot_delim);	//now we're looking through 'the_content' for the actual footnote text (not just inline link)
$foot_end = strpos($data, $foot_delim, $foot_start);			//find out how long footnote is
// BLACKHC: fix spurious {{..}}s in LaTeX blocks.
if($foot_start === FALSE || $foot_end === FALSE) {
Plugin still works but....
By , for WP 3.5.1

The plugin still works (3.5.1), and it's an awesome method for displaying footnotes on a page, especially if you're wanting that hover effect, but... I would have given it 5 stars, but removed 1 because the author isn't actively supporting the plugin, and 1 star because the plugin is coded using 2 year old WordPress methods... most importantly, it loads and parses on EVERY FRONT END page...

Otherwise, the plugin is very light, and does what it's suppose to.
