Generates footnotes in the sidebar, then magically positions them alongside their in-text references using the `[ref]` shortcode and a moveable widget
Side Matter generates a numbered list of footnotes in a sidebar widget, then magically positions them alongside their in-text references. To use, simply place the Side Matter widget in your sidebar, then enclose footnote text in a page or post using the
[ref] shortcode, like so:
Here's the sentence to annotate.[ref]Footnote text goes here.[/ref]
Side Matter will not display notes correctly within all themes. It works well with many popular base themes, such as Twenty Twelve and Toolbox.
To customize the styling of Side Matter footnote lists and reference numbers, copy the contents of
side-matter/side-matter.css to your theme’s stylesheet and edit as needed.
