Set color theme to

Bigfoot footnotes

Add bigfoot.js footnotes by adding the following items to the theme/ directory:

├── static
│   ├── css
│   │   └── bigfoot-default.css
│   └── js
│       ├── bigfoot.js
│       └── bigfoot.min.js

Note: to get the width to work, I added a *7 to line 447 in bigfoot.js:

maxWidth = Math.min(maxWidth, $this.find(".bigfoot-footnote__content").outerWidth() + 1)*7;

For fun I changed the color of the footnote when activated (line 41 in bigfoot-default.css):

  background-color: #3377b3;

Add the following to theme/templates/base.html:

  • <link rel="stylesheet" href="../../../../theme/css/bigfoot-default.css" /> (within the <head> tag)
  • just before the close of the </body> tag:
<script type="text/javascript" src="../../../../theme/js/bigfoot.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript">
    $.bigfoot (
