Hover-iffic footnotes

Update

I’ve come across an issue/bug with the hover function, so I’ll be reverting back to the old non-hover-iffic footnote system for the time being. I’ve notified the original developer of the issue, so hopefully he’ll respond with a fix. Unfortunately, It might be an issue with the way I have my homepage set up, so the developer might not see it as an issue to be fixed globally. Here’s hoping though…

This is a public service announcement

From this day forth1, you’ll be able to hover over footnote reference numbers and see the footnote inline. Try it: hover your cursor over this number2.

This is possible by way of this wordpress plugin, which is fantastic, but, as a designer I needed to muck with it so it suited my personal taste. Because of my newbness, I make have broken something :( It seems to work on the Mac browsers I’ve tested it in (Safari, Firefox, Chrome)3.

Please let me know if you encounter any problems.

  1. Well, it’s really from this post forth, ‘cos I can’t be bothered changing all previous footnotes from the old model this the new fandagled hover-iffic version.
  2. Cool, no? If you’re reading this it means I haven’t screwed it up! Apologies for you touch interface user, there is no hover. Luckily, i’m still leaving the footnotes at the end of the post.
  3. Haven’t tried Opera, sorry if it doesn’t work there :( **Update** works in Opera 11.01 according to a commenter)
