    every release gets a new productivity bug... "great" work... today in 2.3.1: a $ sign in a footnote will break rendering of the site completly ... perfect! I'll make it my own and I predict it would be more stable than your's ;/ That's not the quality I expect from a well known Atlassian partner - even it's free - it's the worst advertising you could make ;(

    It would be great if this was available for Confluence - Cloud.

    Actually it works fine. But for me it lacks a main feature, to put the same footnote to multiple places in one page.
