Side Note allows you to create shortcodes to add side notes to pages and posts.
A side note is an aside or parenthetical statement that goes into more detail about something related to the current topic (typically, it's expressed within parentheses). Side Note allows you to put these statements into well-defined sections to improve readability and flow:
If you have set a particular Side Note to 'collapsible,' users will be able to click on the icon on the left to expand or collapse it:
To active Side Note in your CMS site:

To use Side Note in your CMS site:

- Add your side note's text between the opening and closing tags - between '[side-note]' and '[/side-note].'

The side note will now appear on the post or page.
Side Note side notes can have the following attributes:
- collapsible - this attribute allows users to collapse and expand a side note:
- [side-note] Example [/side-note]
- collapsed - this attribute makes side notes collapsed when the page loads:
- [side-note collapsed] Example [/side-note]
- icon - this attribute sets the side note's icon. Its values can be anything listed in the "Available Icons" section:
- [side-note icon='hot'] Example [/side-note]
- title - this attribute sets the side note's title. It can be anything, but longer titles may break the side note's formatting:
- [side-note title="Note Title"] Example [/side-note]
- align - this attribute sets the side note's alignment. Its values can be "left" or "right":
- [side-note align="right"] Example [/side-note]
A side note can have multiple attributes.
