Are there any plugins or best practices for giving authors in Craft the ability to create footnotes within a Rich Text Field? Is anyone doing anything like this?

    I have a footnotes plugin in the works that I could share for beta testing really soon, Jonathan.

  • @carlcs That would be great. I'd be happy to provide feedback for you on your plugin. Mar 16 '15 at 13:24
  • Jonathan, contact me on craft slack and I will send you a copy. Sorry that it took longer than expected, but I did another refactor and added new features.

I don't know of a solution for footnotes within Rich Text fields aside from the plugin referenced in the comments of the question. As an alternative, consider having a read over Craft Your Content With Markdown And Matrix by Stephen Lewis. He explains how he handles footnotes using Matrix and smartdown.


Next to carlcs' plugin (which is still in private beta apparently) there's also Craft Footnotes.
