    We are using footnote for Confluence 5.5.3, and the footnotes are always newline-one, not inline as we specified. It may display inline for the very first time when we inserted it but then in the next edit of the page, all the footnotes will become newline footnotes even without any touch. Not very nice!

    We confirm that having inline footnotes cannot be possible with the version of Confluence you are using - 5.5.3. The Confluence versions that were released prior to Confluence 5.5.6 cannot have the inline feature. This is due to the way Confluence has been designed by Atlassian. Please see below tickets raised with Atlassian regarding this: https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/CONF-24581


    Atlassian has provided a fix for this from Confluence 5.5.6 versions onwards. If you wish to migrate to Confluence 5.5.6 or above, please use a compatible version of Footnotes plugin and you will be able to have inline Footnotes.

    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 ;(

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

    We like this plugin and the support from the vendor, wherein they promptly fixed a bug when reported.
