Hello you all Regular smile I noticed that the new interface allows to put automatic footnotes, which I would love to use. It will be of great practice and help. But can you, people, tell how to use the feature? ^_^ Please. I don't know what is the logic of it.

In the place where you want to add a footnote enclose the footnote text within an fn tag: [fn]like this[/fn]

The filter will take the text within the tag and move it to a footnote at the bottom of the page.

You can also use a "value" attribute to a) set the numbering to start from the given value, or b) to set an arbitrary text string as label.
Ex:

[fn value="5"]This becomes footnote #5. Subsequent are #6, #7...[/fn]
[fn value="*"]This footnote is assigned the label "*"[/fn]

Using value="" you can have multiple references to the same footnote in the text body.
[fn value="5"]This becomes footnote #5.[/fn]
[fn value="5"]This is a reference to the same footnote #5, this text itself is discarded.[/fn]
