Project Description

We need a wordpress plugin that will put scientific citations (references) into a database and then display them in posts and pages as footnotes.

The plugin will work exactly as can be seen on this page [url removed, login to view] Go to the bottom of the page and you will see some references, which then go back and forth with the super-scripts further up the page. This was done in codeigniter. We want exactly the same functionality for wordpress.

In detail, this is what the plugin will do:

In Admin - most of this will be done by Ajax:

Under each post / page edit, there will be a section (the Add a Citation box) that includes custom textareas to enter the following information:

author - the authors of the cited work
title - the title of the paper
citation - the correct citation of the paper
link - URL of the reference online
desc - free text description

On clicking the "Add Reference" Button, that reference will be put in a database with fields of the same name. The Database entry will return a unique id for that reference. The plugin will then append a shortcode into the edited post/page that refers to that reference. eg. [ref:26]

The added reference will be displayed below the (now empty) Add a Citation box, with the option to edit the reference, and to reinsert that shortcode wherever the editing cursor is at the time.

We also need a simple search script that can search the DB using the LIKE %% format on any of the above fields. Any matches found are then displayed with the Insert Reference button so as to add the shortcode for the selected citation into the post.

When viewing a Post / Page:

The plugin will work exactly as can be seen on this page [url removed, login to view] Go to the bottom of the page and you will see some references, which then go back and forth with the super-scripts further up the page. This was done in codeigniter. We want exactly the same functionality for wordpress.

The plugin will find each shortcode, and replace it with a super-script number that is also a hyperlink to the full reference at the bottom of the post. Note that the number here is NOT the same as the unique id in the database. instead the the number starts at 1 for the first reference on the page, and increments for each new reference, or is reused for reused references.

All the references used for this post are then collected at the bottom, just as on that tastyvite page. As on that page, we need the hide/show link, and the links back and forth to the text.

The plugin should also include a css file that matches the styling for the references as shown on [url removed, login to view]

Demo:

When you think you have completed the project, post it on a demo site so that I can try it out before putting it on my own site. Please don't do that until it is ACTUALLY working just like on the tastyvite site.

Please make sure you include the word TastyVite in your bid, so that I know you have actually read this. If you don't I won't select your bid.
