Adds inline annotations to WordPress using the Open Knowledge

  • Offers the option to configure the annotable content area from the WordPress settings page.
  • Provides blog administrators with the option to decide whether to display only authenticated users’ annotations or also annotations made by anonymous users.
  • Provides a rudimentary regular expressions’ based mechanism for configuring in what pages/blog sections the Annotator widget should be included.


  1. Upload the ‘okfn-annotator’ folder and place it into into /wp-content/plugins/.
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress.
  3. Finally, sign up at AnnotateIt and
