!Important Warning

Don't have multiple notes with the exact same content. Then only the first instance will work. However, a labelnote and a normal note can work together even if they have the same content. But multiple labelnotes that are named the exact same with the exact same contents run into the same problem.


Notes are useful to add tangential remarks, without cluttering up the main text. Those who arenít interested can skip it easily. The more curious can find out what is says by clicking on it.

You can freely use {{Pothole}}s and {{Wiki Word}}s in the inside of a note or a labelnote. You cannot use them in the display text for a labelnote though.

The click-to-reveal function may not work when previewing an edit to a page. You just see the "note" next; clicking does nothing.

There is/was an old markup called a hottip. [=[[hottip:*:They look like this.]]=] They are no longer working properly -- sometimes not appearing at all -- and as such are being phased out. If you see a hottip on a wiki page, please either integrate the text into the article, or replace them with the note or labelnote markup, as appropriate.

Notes -- and their fancier cousins, labelnotes -- let you add semi-hidden text. Instead of the note contents, readers see just a superscript "note" (or other label). To reveal the hidden text, simply click on the visible text.

The wiki software seems to insert a space after the "note" text when rendered, so if you care about that kind of thing, don't put a space after the closing tag.


Added DiffLines:

The wiki software inserts a space after the "note" text when rendered. However, it does not insert a space after the expanded text. So if the note is in the middle of a sentence, it will appear to have an extra space until expanded. Fortunately, it's barely noticeable, and even less so if the note is at the end of a sentence.
