I am new to the thanks command. I was trying to add the funding for two authors and I used something like

\newcommand*\samethanks[1][\value{footnote}]{\footnotemark[#1]}

\author{First Author\thanks{Supported by some funding}}
\author{Second Author\samethanks}

and it seems there is a very ugly hyperlink box and after some search I couldn't find a way to get rid of it. Also I am not sure if the way I used to add thanks to both authors is correct. Thank you in advance for any suggestion and advice.

    Use \footnotemark and \footnotetext instead of the first \thanks. See page 48 of hyperref manual. Nov 26 '20 at 17:27

    What document class are you using. The definition of \thanks varies. Nov 26 '20 at 17:37

    You must be loading some package to allow you to create more than one author. I tried to reproduce a MWE and got only the second \author. Nov 27 '20 at 0:15

I just figured out a way myself. May not be a very clean way, but at least it works.

The idea is to just add two asterisks manually to the two authors, and then add a footnote without any label and link through the method described in this post: Footnote without reference
