I’ve been wanting to add footnotes in a WordPress blog for sometime but could never figure out how. There doesn’t seem to be any built in, automatic way to do this which seems kind of weird to me, but whatever. A thorough search of WordPress help finally yielded a workable solution.
You can check out my first footnoted post at hubbardcountyjail.org (a blog I run at work).
You have to copy and paste some HTML while in HTML mode but it’s not difficult especially if you’ll only be using one footnote per post. More than one and you have to replace “X” in both sets of code with a unique identifier for each footnote i.e., 1, 2, 3, etc.
