This was one of those features I’ve put off implementing for too long.1 The markdown parser I use doesn’t support them and the alternatives lacked other features I needed.2 Anyway, I’ve mashed together a solution and you can now do block footnotes using this syntax:
A line with a footnote.[^1] Another line with another footnote.[^2] [^1]: And the note goes here. [^2]: And the second goes here too.
It’s straightforward to customize the styling of the footnotes in your template’s stylesheet. Inline footnotes, which I prefer, will be enabled soon.3
This will speed up the typesetting of my DFW fanfic.↩
The syntax for inline footnotes goes something like this:
Line of text.^[with an inline footnote] which seems much easier to manage!↩
