│       ├── bigfoot.js
│       └── bigfoot.min.js

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

  background-color: #3377b3;

  • <link rel="stylesheet" href="../../../../theme/css/bigfoot-default.css" /> (within the <head> tag)

<script type="text/javascript" src="../../../../theme/js/bigfoot.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript">
