Internal links in footnotes

Solved! Go to Solution.

I'm using Github Pages service to generate a static website from a collection of markdown files.

Links in footnotes are not working as expected. They are rendered as links to markdown files, instead of links to html files.


[test2](             # <a href="/test2.html">test2</a>

[^1]: [test2](       # <a href="">test2</a>



Probably it is a bug in Jekyll, but I'm not sure.

Thanks for reply! I submitted a bug report to kramdown issue tracker.

Tried jekyll-footnotes plugin, but it doesn't seem to be working.
