Este plugin no se ha probado con las últimas 3 versiones mayores de WordPress. Puede que ya no tenga soporte ni lo mantenga nadie, o puede que tenga problemas de compatibilidad cuando se usa con las versiones más recientes de WordPress.



Based on the now unsupported fd-footnotes plugin, Footnotation provides
an easy way to add footnotes to your posts.

La sintaxis es conservada por fd-footnotes, lo que significa que es natural, simple de
entender, y degrada con cierta gracia incluso si se elimina el plugin.
Los enlaces se crean automáticamente entre una nota de pie de página y su posición en el contenido principal donde la nota a pie de página es referenciada para que los lectores puedan consultarla y regresar con facilidad al mismo lugar en el texto que estaban leyendo.

Para hacer una nota a pie de página, escríbela en la misma línea dentro de corchetes numerados arbitrariamente:

 [7. Example footnote.]

The syntax is important. Each pair of square brackets must contain a number
followed by a full stop and a space and then have the footnote text itself.

Neither do the numbers have to be in order nor do they have to be unique. All
footnotes will be re-numbered automatically.


Show footnotes only on single posts or pages: This option hides the list of
footnotes on the main blog page but retains their numbers which will link to the
individual post/page URL directly.

Collapse footnotes until they are clicked on: This option hides footnotes
initially, expanding them only when a footnote reference is clicked on.

Match footnote marker colour to surrounding text: This option makes sure the
footnote reference marker matches the body text (academic style). The default
option is to have the footnote marker match the website’s default link colour
(web style).

NB Anything from links to formatting to images may be included inside a
footnote, except square brackets.

NB Multiple footnotes with the same text and number will leave you with incorrect
footnotes. Make sure either that all footnotes have different content or, two or
more footnotes with the same content all have different numbers.


  • Incluye notas de pie de página con facilidad mientras escribes. (El número después del corchete puede ser arbitrario.)
  • Footnote marker on the frontend. (You are offered two display styles to choose from.)
  • Las notas a pie de página aparecen elegantemente debajo del artículo.

We’ve used this plugin since fd-footnotes was abandoned. On our site, it’s absolutely essential. As others have said, it’s straight forward and easy to use. Unfortunately, if you do a lot of hand coding on your pages, and so use a raw HTML syntax highlighting editor, you’ll find yourself incredibly frustrated by this plugin, as a single footnote is almost guaranteed to make a complete hash of the syntax highlighting. The reason is fairly simple: This plugin violates the rules for WordPress shortcodes. A useful work-around for the interested: use double square brackets while editing your page/post. So instead of: [1. this is a footnote.] Write: [[1. this is a footnote.]] while you’re working on the page/post. Your footnote marks will then be surrounded by square brackets, but at least the syntax highlighting in your code editor won’t be turned into mush. Then, after you’re through editing, remove the outside set of square brackets. Not perfect, but until or unless the developer of this plugin wishes to update it to comply with shortcode syntax (which might screw up old posts) its the best we can hope for.

I had used FD Footnotes for years and was apprehensive that the plugin would stop working some time in the future since the original author announced that he would not be updating it any more. So I was delighted to discover this drop-in replacement. It works perfectly, just like the original FD Footnotes. Kudos to V.H. Belvadi for offering this replacement. I trust that he will continue to support it. As of WordPress 4.9, the plugin works perfectly. A truly elegant, easy-to-use solution!

Thank you for continuing the now unsupported fd-footnotes plugin. This plugin ist really easy to use and works well. Here is my CSS for minor aesthetic changes: sup.footnote a { text-decoration: underline; vertical-align: super; font-weight: bold; font-size: 80%; padding-left: 0.1em; } .footnotedivider { width: 40%; padding-top: 0.8em; border-top: 1px solid #000; } .footnotes li { font-size: 1.1em !important; max-width: 490px; margin-bottom: 1em; } If you want a button for showing / hiding footnotes: .footnotes > p:nth-child(2) { margin-top: .2em; } .footnoteshow { display: inline-block; color: #575757; background: #f2f2f2; margin-left: 2em; margin-bottom: .8em; font-size: .8em; border: solid #d1d1d1 1px; padding: 3px 13px 2px 13px; text-decoration: none; } .footnoteshow:hover { color: #fff; background: #1296e8; text-decoration: none; } Last thing: it is possible to translate the «Show footnotes» string editing the plugin code in WP. Updates of the plugin will destroy changes, but they won’t happen very often, I suppose. Thank you for maintaining this plugin!
