Sites on the OpenLab

OpenLab Attributions

OpenLab Attributions Plugin

The OpenLab Attributions plugin allows anyone to add attributions for Creative Commons licensed content they’re using on an OpenLab site. Each attribution will add a superscript number that links to a reference list at the bottom of a page or post.

The plugin is network activated, which means you don’t need to activate it yourself.

Adding an Attribution

1. You can add attributions for text or images. For text, place your cursor in the place where you would like to add the attribution, and click the attribution icon. For an image, click on the image caption and then click the attribution icon.
