Sidenotes (i.e. margin notes, or footnotes on the side) possible?

Recommended Posts

I would like to know whether it is possible to display sidenotes in the content area of PlatformPro. An example of sidenotes is available at http://www.grantland.com/story/_/id/6635763/welcome-grantland. I have searched this forum and other sources for info on how sidenotes could be generated in what we might call a 'side column' to the right of the main text -- but no luck so far. Since I have minimal CSS experience, I figured that before delving into how I might use the source code from the link above to work on WordPress/PlatformPro, I would first check in with this forum to see if anyone knows if such sidenotes are possible. If so, how did you write them in? FYI, the CSS from the example is at http://a.espncdn.com/combiner/c?css=grantland/grantland.print.r1.css. Thanks for your help. GJ

GJ, first, may I apologize that your topic seems to have slipped through the cracks. It's incredibly unusual as we're pretty proficient about answering people in fast time so I must profusely apologize. There are plugins that can do that, such as http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/sidenotes/ or, you can simply use a text widget combined with Widget Logic. Let me explain Widget Logic briefly. It is also a plugin and places code into the widget that allows you to specify which page or post the widget appears on. So if you have notes you want to add to post ID 231, you tell Widget Logic in a text widget to only show that widget in the sidebar on post ID 231. It will never appear on other posts. http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/widget-logic/ Widgets are a WordPress function and are found at Dashboard > Appearance > Widgets. Your sidebars are configured in Dashboard > PlatformPro > Template Setup.
