FootNote generates duplicate numbers

Reported by: roger@… Owned by: Ryan J Ollos
Priority: high Component: FootNoteMacro
Severity: normal Keywords:
Cc: Trac Release: 0.12


When the footnotes are listed with [[FootNote]], it numbers the list. So you get a listing like this:

1. 1. Text A and so on
   and so on.
2. 2. Text X

The first numeral is a numbered list number. The second number is the footnote number that is a link. It is the first number that is wrong.

In my case, the [[FootNote]] call is directly after a table. But as the separator line above the footnotes is drawn, I do not think that is causing any issues.

This is with the current version of the Macro.

I'm not able to reproduce. Would you kindly?:

  1. Try the example, FootNoteMacro#Example, and make sure you get the expected result (shown below).
  2. If possible, post the exact markup from your wiki page to this ticket, in a code block so that I can copy and paste it to my test environment.

Looks like a CSS problem to me. The footnote list is generated as an ordered list (<ol>) in html, the list-style-type is then set to none for each list item (<li>) in CSS. Inside the li there is the footnote number as a link (<a>) back to the footnote's origin. So CSS is used here explicitly avoid the display of both the list item number and the linked number.

So it would be interesting which browser/version the OP used when he experienced the problem. The Sitepoint CSS Reference reports buggy support in IE up to 8+.

Another Idea would be that the OP uses some custom CSS which unhides the li numbers.

I just tried again, and the behavior is now correct. Since the report I have upgraded both Trac and the FootNote macro. So perhaps that did the trick. I have tried it on openSUSE 11.4 with:

  • Google Chrome 11.0.696.28 beta
  • Firefox 4.0
  • Opera 11.01

They all work great.
