No doubts about it. :)

In case I install the mod... It is compatible than with 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 ;)

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.

+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?
Title: Re: Footnotes???
Post by: Arantor on April 20th, 2011, 03:16 AM
Yeah, if it's relevant to the quote.
Title: Re: Footnotes???
Post by: Nao on April 20th, 2011, 08:05 AM
And that's the bug I think I saw a few months ago: a case where a footnote was referenced outside of a quote, and was printed inside the quote that followed..... :^^;:
I know it's only due to a lack of self-iteration but I wanted to save CPU cycles....

I started a footnote-mania fever on my community... :lol:

I think I'm having a boner!!

(What I like about this word, is that it's an exact homonym of the French "bonheur", meaning "happiness" ;))

Footnotes is quite an awesome mod, I found it over on noisen a while back. It certainly does help me to stay on topic and add my foot notes where necessary so I don't interrupt the flow of my posts.
