Foot-notes for Trac


The FootNoteMacro automatically collates1 and generates foot-notes.

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

[[FootNote(This is a foot-note)]]

Foot-notes are numbered by the order in which they appear.

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


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

Some text[[FootNote(A foot-note)]] and some more text [[FootNote(A foot-note)]].


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


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

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