    To place some notes not inside the text. Only a mark like this [1] is there and the explanation is at the end of the entry text.

    See as sample this blog entry:

    Sorry to bring this discussion up again.

    I've tried all sorts of combinations but still can't work out how to use this plugin. Can anyone give me a clue?

    How do you enter a footnote?

    After much experimentation, because I was thinking that you could somehow enter the note inline (like [1=some note] or some such syntax) and it would magically get moved to the bottom, under the [footnotes] tag.

    It's only when I started playing around with various combinations, like [note]some note[/note] (yes, really!) that I stumbled upon the fact that simply putting "[1]" after a word, then adding something like "[1] Some note" under the [footnotes] tag at the end of the page actually created a link between them.

    I now know that's what you meant, and so did the first reponder to the original poster, but it's not explained clearly enough, because people like me are thinking that this plugin somehow looks through the text, identifies where notes have been inserted, assigns them a sequential number and collects all the notes it finds in a list at the end of the page. What you wrote was how I know it's supposed to look like after it's done that - I didn't realise that you need to keep track of your own numbering sequence and simply add the note to the list.

    Now I know, I feel a bit stupid - but you can understand my confusion, I hope?

    Edit: and I hope that clears it up for anyone else who is stuck in the same way of thinking.
