Adding footnotes to a post is simple. Just type them inline in your post in square brackets like this:

Footnote Example 1

Each footnote must have a number followed by a period and a space and then the actual footnote. They don’t have to be unique but it is recommended. It doesn’t matter what the numbers are since the footnotes will be automatically renumbered when the post is displayed.

For example, this:

Footnote Example 2a

…produces this:
