There is a Conifer Archive of this site from October 6, 2020. It is available both on the Conifer site and the Internet Archive. The .warc file is not part of this repo because it exceeds GitHub's 100MB file size limit.

The footnotes use bigfootjs to display properly. If you would like to add a footnote, you will need to insert a new marker and update the text. These steps are necessary because bigfoot uses the footnote numbers to match markers to text. We try to keep the footnote text in the order it appears in the main text, which results in the reference numbers appearing out of sequence. This can be strange when described in the abstract, so hopefully these steps will make it more clear. We cannot guarantee that increased clarity will make it less strange.

  1. Look at the bottom of the appropriate page. If there is not a note (see below), use the next sequential number for your footnote and add an HTML comment with the next number.

  2. If there is a note, like:

<!-- Next fn is 64 -->

use that number as your new footnote number and increase the number in the note by one

  1. Go to the place in the next you would like to add your footnote and add [^64], where '64' is the number you decided to use based on steps 1 and 2.

  2. In the footnote section, place your footnote in the appropriate order as reflected by the main text. For example, if the paragraph before your new footnote has footnote #60 and the paragraph after your new footnote has footnote #61, place your footnote text between them in the footnote section.

  3. Match your footnote format to the other footnotes.

  4. bigfootjs can have problems rendering the text of really long URLs on mobile. The best solution we have to address this is to add spaces in the text portion of the reference. For example:

[ stories/advice-understanding- our-licence-requirement](

Note that there are spaces in the [] version of the URL. A space every 30 characters or so usually does the trick. Adding the spaces after slashes or dashes makes it less obvious (and annoying) to readers.

That's it. So simple!
