Working on a new theme for an existing WordPress user who had an older version of the plugin in place on their live website.

I activated the plugin with our new theme on our development server and it worked perfectly at activation. No migration or upgrade issues.


nice thank you

working just fine even without any updates for more than 2 years

Nice plugin - is another version in the works?
By , for WP 3.9.1

The plugin is easy to use and works as advertised.

I would like a few customization options, such as being able to rename the "Notes" header to something like "References" and perhaps changing the formatting of the numbering (e.g., letters, Roman numerals, numbers in parentheses, etc.).

Is there, per chance, a newer version in the works with some of these updates?

Works Great

Super easy to use. Works great!

Simple & effective!

I would appreciate a few customization options (custom heading and for "notes section" etc.) and most importantly a button to TinyMCE editors. But than again, everything of this can be done by myself.

Five stars for the idea!

One Issue I Can't Figure Out
By , for WP 3.5.1

When I use this plugin, if I put more than ten footnotes in a post, the footnote numbers reset to zero after the tenth footnote. In the text, the numbers continue to go up, but in the footer they start over. There are no settings anywhere for me to futz with. Does the developer have a solution for this?

Looks very good

This plugin does exactly what it promises. It easy to use and it nicely puts the footnotes at the bottom of every page. One additional suggestion for the developer. Create a brackets option. That would make it possible to make a footnote look like '[1]' or '(1)' rather than just '1'. But nevertheless great plugin.
