Footnotes/endnotes/page jumps no longer work

    I have successfully copy/pasted open office documents into wordpress for over two years including footnotes/endnotes. It just stopped working within the last week or so. Worse, I can’t even edit the HTML to make it work. The HTML keeps removing the ability of footnotes to be links. The “page jump” code isn’t working.

    I found out that there’s a DIV and SUP code of some sort added by open office that seems to cause the problem, but it’s a bit annoying that I have to spend time to edit the html all of a sudden when it was never necessary before.

    The blog I need help with is


    Review this support document: .

    Can you give us a link to a place this has happened so we can take a look?

    Also, have you changed themes or anything lately?



    An example is here:

    The area: Woman are often seen as affectionate, appreciative, emotional, friendly, sympathetic, sensitive, and sentimental; but men are seen as dominant, achievement-oriented, active, ambitious, self-confident and rational.1

    There is a “sup” code around the 1 here.

    The endnote is at the bottom. The div code is around the 1 there: 1 These specific findings are attributed to David Schneider’s The Psychology of Stereotyping (New York: Guilford Press, 2005).



    Things have gotten even worse now and the endnote code refuses to link properly. The endnote code refuses to surround the numbers used for endnotes. New post:

    The first endnote is at the very end of this area:” Suppose that a friend when in his right mind has deposited arms with me and he asks for them when he is not in his right mind, ought I to give them back to him? No one would say that I ought or that I should be right in doing so, any more than they would say that I ought always to speak the truth to one who is in his condition.1″

    The code ends before the number “1” shows up: /a>1

    I tried to fix this issue by hand, but wordpress editor keeps ruining everything.
