Test Post using footnotes

I am experimenting with footnotes. This is a way to add references to the blog posts.

This is one example where the link from the URL is captured automatically from the address field:

Comparison of glioblastoma (GBM) molecular classification methods – PubMed

Glioblastoma (GBM) is the most aggressive and common form of brain cancer in adults. GBM is characterized by poor survival and remarkably high tumors heterogeneity (both intertumoral and intratumoral), and lack of effective therapies. Recent high-throughput data revealed heterogeneous genetic/genomic/epigenetic features and led to multiple methods aiming to classify tumors according to the key molecular events that drive the most aggressive cellular components so that targeted therapies can be developed for individual subtypes. However, GBM molecular subtypes have not led to improvement of patients outcomes.

It is relatively easier to post ideas with the original link. However, I wish to go beyond; in this case, the footnotes come in handy1.

This is completely experimental as of now, because I am still trying to fine-tune the workflows by adding some automation layer (if feasible). 2 The problem is with the citation tools, since none of them offer a quick turn around way.3 Zotero doesn’t offer any Chrome extension, and the bookmarklet is a terrible idea. A link below:

ZoteroBib: Fast, free bibliography generator – MLA, APA, Chicago, Harvard citations

ZoteroBib helps you build a bibliography instantly from any computer or device, without creating an account or installing any software. It’s brought to you by the team behind Zotero, the powerful open-source research tool recommended by thousands of universities worldwide, so you can trust it to help you seamlessly add sources and produce perfect bibliographies. If you need to reuse sources across multiple projects or build a shared research library, we recommend using Zotero instead.

The idea in Block Generator on WordPress is to create internal links by creating anchor tags. This is still better than mucking with plug-ins (and in effect paying a higher price tier to WordPress), unless I migrate to my own instance. Ideally, it should work like a Word Processor, where it becomes easy to use citations (and then followed by an RTF scan by converting everything linked to references).
