    Hi guys,

    I’ve been using the Modern Footnotes plugin to create clickable, inline citations through out the body copy. I was wondering if anyone has some CSS that will change the size all the text with the [mfn][/mfn] tags. I could enclose them with <sup></sup> tags but they are still a bit big.

    Any ideas?


    Hey Joe,

    Thank you for using Enfold.

    Where can we see an example of the text enclosed in the “mfn” shortcode? We didn’t find one in the home page. Please provide a direct link to the page or section containing this shortcode. A screenshot will help as well.

    Best regards,


    Hi Ismael,

    Sorry about that. I’ll point you in the right direction.



    Thanks for that. Please try the following in Quick CSS under Enfold->General Styling:

    sup.modern-footnotes-footnote a {
      font-size: 12px;

    Best regards,


    Hey Rikard!

    Works perfectly. That was embarrassingly simple!

    Thanks again – this thread can be closed.



    It has also reduced the size of the main and secondary menus.


    And all the H styles :-(


    And the the page width too.

    I have to remove the footnotes CSS for now as I’m presenting to the client this morning.



    Thank you for the update.

    There were a few syntax errors in the Quick CSS field, which we corrected. We also added the css modification back to adjust the font size of the footnote links. It should work properly now.

    Best regards,


    Hi Ismeal,

    Thanks for attending to this! There are a couple of things that have reverted back to their original stylings:

      Wider main menu drop downs so they fit on one line
      Thicker “fat” yellow lines (6px)
      Larger secondary menu font

    Did you remove a couple of snippets to allow the superscript code to work? I need to get those styles back in.


    I’ve managed to solve all the issues :-)

    This thread can be closed. Cheers guys :-)



    Great, I’m glad that you got things working and thanks for the update. I’ll close this thread for now then, please open a new thread if you should have any further questions or problems.

    Best regards,
