Footnote Setting



Purpose

The footnote setting lets you display a custom footnote on every slide within your presentation.

Sample Syntax


footnote : "© 2018 One Tap Ltd."

Details

Slideshow settings are activated using a PITCHME.yaml properties file.

Footnotes are visible on-screen whether your slideshow presentation is being viewed in normal mode or fullscreen mode.

HTML Footnotes

The footnote setting also supports the use of arbitrary HTML fragments alongside plain text. This feature supports:

Interactive Footnotes

Links can be embedded inside foonotes to help direct your audience to specific content within your presentation or to some external location for further reading, or product, service, or conference promotion.

For example, here is a footnote acting as quick link to a special offer on slide 10 within the presentation itself:


footnote : "<a href='#/10'>ACME Dynamite Free Trial!</a>"

Here is another example, this time linking to an external webpage:


footnote : "GitPitch Pro - <a href='https://gitpitch.com/pro-features'>Learn More</a>"

Custom Footnote Styling

If you inject custom HTML into your footnote you are then responsible for styling it.

For example, assuming you are using one of the dark themes, you might want to consider making the link color white within your footnote to help it stand out:


footnote : "<a style='text-decoration: none; color: white;' href='#/12'>Learn More</a>"

In this example text-decoration style on the link has been disabled. This is recommended, but optional.

An alternative to adding styling rules directly within the footnote is to define a CSS class for your footnote using custom CSS. Then simply apply the custom style when defining your footnote.
