Modern Footnotes

Beschreibung

Footnotes optimized for desktop and mobile, inspired by the styles of Grantland and FiveThirtyEight.

Use a footnote in your post by using the footnote icon in the WordPress editor or by using the shortcode: [mfn]this will be a footnote[/mfn] The plugin will automatically associate sequential numbers with each plugin.

On desktop, footnotes will appear as a tooltip when the user clicks on the number. On mobile, footnotes will expand as a section below the current text.

Installation

  1. Upload the modern-footnotes folder to your wp-content/plugins directory.
  2. Activate the plugin in the WordPress Plugins section.
  3. Use a footnote in your post by using the footnote icon in the WordPress editor or by using the shortcode: [mfn]this will be a footnote[/mfn]
  4. Reference numbers will be automatically assigned sequentially so the first footnote is labeled 1, then the next footnote is 2, then 3, etc. You can specify custom reference numbers by using the „referencenumber“ attribute to specify a particular reference number. For example: [mfn referencenumber=3]This will have the number 3 with it.[/mfn]
  5. If you want to customize the styles, you can do so by overriding the following styles in custom CSS for your theme:
    .modern-footnotes-footnote – The superscript element displaying the footnote number
    .modern-footnotes-footnote–selected – A superscript element that is currently active
    .modern-footnotes-footnote__note – Styling that applies to both mobile and desktop footnotes
    .modern-footnotes-footnote__note–mobile – The styling for a mobile footnote
    .modern-footnotes-footnote__note–desktop – The styling for a desktop footnote

FAQ

How do I create a footnote?

Use a footnote in your post by using the footnote icon in the WordPress editor or by using the shortcode: [mfn]this will be a footnote[/mfn]

Can I make desktop footnotes expand like they do on mobile instead of using tooltips?

Yes. Go to Settings -> Modern Footnotes and choose the „Expandable footnotes on desktop“ option.

Can I customize the reference numbers output by the plugin?

Yes. You can specify custom reference numbers by using the „referencenumber“ attribute to specify a particular reference number. For example: [mfn referencenumber=3]This will have the number 3 with it.[/mfn]

Can I customize the styles of footnotes?

If you want to customize the styles, you can do so by overriding the following styles in custom CSS for your theme:
.modern-footnotes-footnote – The superscript element displaying the footnote number
.modern-footnotes-footnote–selected – A superscript element that is currently active
.modern-footnotes-footnote__note – Styling that applies to both mobile and desktop footnotes
.modern-footnotes-footnote__note–mobile – The styling for a mobile footnote
.modern-footnotes-footnote__note–desktop – The styling for a desktop footnote

Is there support for the Block Editor/Gutenberg Editor?

Yes. You can use the Modern Footnotes button in the toolbar of the Block Editor to move the selected text into a footnote. However, if you want to customize the reference numbers output by the plugin, you’ll have to type out the shortcode instead.

Why isn’t the word „footnote“ appearing by all of my footnotes in the Block Editor/Gutenberg Editor?

The word „footnote“ only shows up by the first footnote in each paragraph in the editor, but all footnotes are highlighted gray. This is to work around a technical limitation of Gutenberg’s editor, though hopefully we can come up with a better solution in the future. Don’t worry, your footnotes will show up correctly when viewing the page/blog post though!

Rezensionen

I chose this plugin because it has options for mobile vs desktop browsers. After installing it footnotes were up and running on all my sites within minutes. Thank you to the developer.

Like mentioned before the plugin is very easy to use, and very straight forward. However, the footnotes are displayed as a # href, and by clicking on it, it jumps to the top of my pages. Not suitable for my theme. This needs a different approach. But keep up the good work!

Great plugin, I placed the footnotes as @viva-xrizzy proposed in his review... works beautiful with Uncode Theme.
