In researching techniques for adding footnotes to posts in WordPress for “Creating Footnotes in WordPress,” I looked into several WordPress Plugins for footnotes. One caught my attention.
AcademicPress WordPress Plugin is ideal for a serious genealogy and family history site as it is designed for academic publishing.
This WordPress Plugin supports APA, Chicago, Harvard, MLA, and other citation styles for proper citation and formatting of reference material. It features a dynamic and customizable footnote feature making it easy to generate footnotes at the bottom of each published post.
WordPress Shortcodes are used for easy usage of citations, footnotes, bibliographies, and other formats.
A great feature is the ability to work with various data sets, allowing import and export of data to and from collections to other formats.
I’ve just started experimenting with this powerful free WordPress Plugin on my genealogy site, as you can see from the footnotes in this article. Give it a try and let me know how it works for you.
