In the book I'm writing now, I want footnotes. Therefore repurposing existing code was the order of the day.
footnote tag has been useful for writing website content. Now that I'm writing electronic books using AkashaEPUB, I want to use this tag, as well, to reference documents on the web.
footnote tag had been implemented inside the
akashacms-base plugin, but that plugin is completely unsuitable for use with AkashaEPUB. The tags provided by
akashacms-base make too many assumptions that the goal is to generate a website. In other words, it does things which would break an EPUB. But the
footnote tag by itself is pretty benign and wouldn't break an EPUB.
To that end I created a standalone plugin --
akashacms-footnotes and the
footnote tag is no longer supplied by
This means for any websites using the
footnote tag you must register
akashacms-footnotes in your site configuration.
