Footnote: Fall Colors coming quickly at the Blogging Club

VGqNTThe Studious Bloggers at Council Blogs are sticklers for protocol. In a discussion about citing references the question arose, “How do you do footnotes in WordPress?” Of course in a hypertexted world you would want to be able to move to the note and back again all with your virtual placeholder. Here we put the code together for the three little pig story.

The three little pigs built their houses out of straw[1], sticks[2], and bricks[3]

Of course in pig latin they don’t say blah, blah, blah they ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, bah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay, ah-blay. These are just here to add some distance between the notes and the references. You can see how it works in this post. We found the magic codes from a post[4] in 2008.

Basically, a hyperlinked superscript is used to go from the reference number to the area of the document where the note reference is. To make it easy to continue reading there is a reciprocal link back to that area of the content.
