How to Reference a Specific Paragraph or Sentence in WordPress Posts
Lucille Stephens

Recently, we showed you a simple way to add footnotes in WordPress posts. After sharing that article, one of our users asked, if there was a way to reference to a specific paragraph or sentence in WordPress posts? This sounds like an amazing feature for journalists using WordPress. Surprisingly enough, we found the answer in an open-source emphasis script by the New York Times. Normally it would take some time for you to implement the script on your own site, but thanks to Ben Balter (@BenBalter), it will be a matter of few clicks. In this article, we will show you how to highlight and reference a specific paragraph or sentence in your WordPress posts.

Thank you for acknowledging that nothing will be lost if WordPress is updated. As for plugins, see screenshot. Really, I feel that half a dozen I now have is more than enough and I don’t want to become complacent or reliant on them everytime I have a so called problem. As you can see, I’m not even using the one plugin that is installed….it for tag manager and is so complicated to understand. The other aspect I don’t like with plugins is that they are always needing to be updated…..then you have to update WP itself….it never ends. As for TinyMCE, I heard to avoid it because it incorporate TABLES and that is a big no-no when you want to get your site indexed properly. Something I had read on another forum somewhere. But I REALLY appreciated your input. Have you noticed TinyMCE messing with your SEO? I hope not……..

How to Cite Multiple Sources in One Paragraph
Stephanie Griffith

When researching a paper, you’ll usually find several sources related to your topic and want to reference all of them in your paper. However, it can be tricky to develop an even distribution of your own original ideas and information from sources found through research. It is tempting to simply regurgitate information back to back. This is not a good idea, however, as it does not present the most professional and well-developed piece of writing.
