Shady Characters is powered by WordPress. It uses a modified version of Austin Sweeney’s Civil Footnotes plugin to display footnotes and a custom plugin called Bibcite (available on Github) to display references. References are managed by Mendeley and synchronised with Dropbox.
Shady Characters uses Sindre Bremnes’ Satyr and Faunus typefaces for body text and headings respectively. Find out more at monokrom.no, or learn about the new characters Sindre added to Faunus for Shady Characters.
