Version 22 (modified by rjollos, 4 years ago) (diff)

Updated the example.

Add footnotes to wiki

Description

The FootNoteMacro automatically collates1 and generates footnotes.

To use it, simply call the FootNoteMacro with the footnote content2 as the only argument to the macro:

[[FootNote(This is a footnote)]]

Footnotes are numbered by the order in which they appear.

To create a reference to an existing footnote, pass the footnote number as the only argument to the macro:

[[FootNote(1)]]

In addition, identical footnotes are coalesced into one entry. The following will generate one footnote entry with two references:

Some text[[FootNote(A footnote)]] and some more text [[FootNote(A footnote)]].

[[FootNote]]

And finally, to display a list of foot-notes call the macro with no arguments:

[[FootNote]]

Once a set of footnotes has been displayed, a complete new set of footnotes can be created. This allows multiple sets of footnotes per page.

Example

Here are the footnotes assembled from this page.


  1. 1. Arranges in numerical order
  2. 2. Any WikiFormatting can be used as content


Here is some wiki markup that will exercise all the functionality of the macro.

Testing out the !FootNoteMacro[[FootNote(Here is the first footnote.)]]. 
This will be a good test to exercise all of its functionality
[[FootNote(Here is the second footnote)]]. And now I'll add an identical
footnote and refer to the first footnote again.
[[FootNote(Here is the second footnote)]][[FootNote(1)]].

Now I've test all of the documented behavior.

[[FootNote]]
