superscript not working

  1. I have footnotes in my blog post. I added superscripted numbers following the directions to place <sup> and </sup> in text mode. When I published the post, the numbers are small but they are not raised like they should be. How can I correct this problem?

    The blog I need help with is quotationsfromourancestors.wordpress.com.

  2. Does what Staff says here this help?

    Or maybe this will http://wpbtips.wordpress.com/2009/07/05/formatting-text-pt-4/ scro9ll to "Subscript (smaller size):"

  3. I have followed the directions exactly. The numbers I superscripted are small, but not raised. I went back to the WordPress manual "Styling Individual Posts and Pages" to see if I was missing a step, but my formatting looks identical to their example, except it doesn't seem to be working on my post.

  4. I'll tag this thread for a Staff follow-up. Please subscribe to the thread so you are notified when they respond and please be patient while waiting.

  5. Hi there,

    Can you try this instead of <sup> </sup>:

    <span style="font-size:50%;vertical-align:super;">TEXT HERE</span>

    The sup works differently by theme, and the code above will work with your theme to add a superscript.

    Let me know if you have any questions with this!

  6. Thanks! That worked. I appreciate the explanation and the example.

  7. You're very welcome!

    Cheers!
