Today I released my first WordPress plugin, Civil Footnotes. It is a modified version of Simon Elvery’s excellent WP-Footnotes. While I was busy changing the code of that plugin, I realized that others might like the changes I made. I cleaned up the code I changed, deleted a hundred or so unnecessary lines from Elvery’s plugin, and am releasing it today into the wild.
Among the changes I made to the plugin:
id’s used to link between the references and the footnotes are cleaner and simpler
- Both the reference and backlinks have descriptive
- No options page to clutter your admin interface
Everything else you’d like to know is located in the new projects section of the website. While I don’t see this plugin being widely-adopted, I am proud of my first foray into the plugin arena.
