Not only was it made a mod for SMF, it's built into Wedge...

Ok, I found the mod and I see that Nao is the writer.... So I think I have my answer!  :cool:

Great Nao! ;)

Sure it is compatible; virtually (if not the exact) code was added from the mod into Wedge ;)

It's funny that I just installed this on my site a while ago before this thread was mentioned.  :^^;:

Me too.  I just installed it about a week ago.

Thanks guys, it means a lot ;) Even more than my birthday topic :eheh:

Footnotes is the one and only mod I built from the ground up. It's not a big mod but it was dear to me -- I love footnotes in general, and I thought SMF should have them. Since the mod itself isn't particularly popular, I'm forcing Wedge users to have the option, eheh... :niark:

Although I should add that the current implementation (for both SMF and Wedge) is very slightly buggy when adding footnotes in quotes when there are multiple quotes. It's a bug I thought I fixed long ago, but it can be reproduced... One day I'll have to deal with it. Maybe first I should make performance tests between regex and strpos matching......... Uh.... Don't mind me, eh.

I've lost count of the number of forums it would have made my life easier on.

+1

Can't you just link the footnotes in the quotes instead of showing them?

They're better off in the same flow, to the best of my knowledge. I tried having them all at the bottom, but wasn't happy with it.

I actually like it, it makes them seem more retaining-context to me. I'm aware that it could be argued as a bug but every time it's hit me, it seemed logical if that makes sense.

You mean the footnote inside the quote?

Yeah, if it's relevant to the quote.
