This plugin implements basic footnote and endnote functionality for Joomla! articles.  It takes footnotes within the article text and converts them into HTML anchors.  Simply markup the text where you want to place the footnote like this:

{footnote} your footnote text here. {/footnote}

The plugin automatically replaces each reference with a sequentially numbered footnote marker (1, 2, 3, and so on) and place the footnote as an endnote (or optionally as a sidenote) appended to the article.

Remember that Footnotes is a content plugin and it can be used with Joomla articles and categories managed by the com_content component.
