Easy footnoting

is there some module to allow you to enter footnotes easily?

i.e. put numbers in the text, and link them to anchored notes at the bottom of pages, and you can go back, add in more in the middle and it will update the numbers?

use 1 with normal html >> to put footnotes in.

Then they'll appear 2 like this 3

  • 1.
  • 2. something
  • 3. another footnote

in IE anyway footnotes with web links in are fucked. half the link displays in the superscript which should just be the number.

It might be we've styled out the numbering. It does link directly to the bookmarks from the numbers as well though. Should be easy to undo what we've done so it works as expected.

footnotes with web links - it's possible it's not supposed to have active weblinks in at all, or it's being interfered with by other filters.

If it was me, I'd just put www. or example.com without the http:// and do a full text link for now.

John i see what u mean. Look what i have done to the first one. You had the fn tags, around the whole line of text, i chnged it to just round the URL and now its working?

Er yeah but now half the footnote is in the body text, detached from the rest of the footnote (the URL).

yeah okay that seems sensible. shame though. hmmm tho actually it might work with www!

in rich text articles it works fine. but yeah it'd be cool to let it display the numbers...

hmmm okay it doesn't work with "www". but could just kill active links for now if it's not fixable...

If there's a way you can use tables in rich text mode (to left and right align images with italicised captions underneath) then i can just switch them back to rich text and they'll work. Can you enable that code in rich text mode?

OK it works now. But you'll have to manually add url or a href to links to make them active.

so you've edited the rich text input format like that?

hmmm only prob is shitloads of those articles already have links in, which now won't work?

hmmm but they seem to, like here

or do you mean within the Footnote tags?

hmm, not sure tbh.

might be we had two filters converting urls to links which were conflicting?

yeah catch looks like they work fine.

only thing is title tag in 2 is weird, but that's not v important. i'll try one without http:// and see if that works...

I'd leave titles out, don't think that'll work.

I'll look at numbering now.

hmmmm no check that link again, leaving out http:// buggers the footnote!

stupid bloody thing.

wonder if there's some way round it like using an alternate (automatic?) way of doing picture captions?

hmmm now having a look at primmo article, i see what you're talking about - footnotes work but links aren't active. Problem is that article is still in full HTML, not Rich Text + tables.

would it be worth creating new input type Rich Text + tables to mess about with so we don't bugger up the default ones or anything?

or could just do everything in current rich text (wit tables) format, and make sure we put http:// in links? not ideal but hey will work for now right?

auto titles - will install module which I think does it, dunno how good it is though. If it works, better than using tables.

it's installed now - yu'll see a linky under the text area saying add image.

It's an extension of the image as nodes thing, so ought to work. We can mess with the css to get it to display how we want.

Only two weeks ago roll eyes

It breaks the libcom arrow though in normal articles - so we (well, probably rkn) need to play with the css a bit more to get both working properly.
