Repeat the same reference in footnote on different pages

I use biblatex package to render references as footnotes to facilitate accession to them. I noticed that when I'm trying to cite some reference many times in the same page, it places a new footnote for each citation. I want to place just one full citation footnote for replicated citations, so the output will be:

  • One full citation footnote for replicated citations per page.
  • A new full citation footnote for a citation (if it was cited for first time in this page) even it was cited in another page. (to clarify citations in printed versions).

Note: I use \footfullcite{} to cite references.

Could you clarify whether @lockstep's solution works for you, or if you want only one footnote for each reference (which implies footnotes numbered consecutively through the whole document). –  Joseph Wright Feb 20 '11 at 13:45

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

\footfullcite will always give the full citation in a footnote. I suggest that you use the style verbose-note and the \footcite command (or even better \autocite, which is mapped to \footcite in verbose-note). verbose-note will print "a full citation [...] when an entry is cited for the first time", and "a pointer to the footnote with the full citation" afterwards (biblatex manual, p. 63).

\documentclass{article}

\usepackage[style=verbose-note]{biblatex}

\usepackage{filecontents}

\begin{filecontents}{test.bib}
@misc{A01,
  author = {Author, A.},
  year = {2001},
  title = {Alpha},
}
\end{filecontents}

\addbibresource{test.bib}

\begin{document}

Some Text \autocite{A01}.

Some Text \autocite{A01}.

\printbibliography

\end{document}

(The filecontents environment is only used to include some external files directly into the example, so that it compiles. It is not necessary for the solution.)

That still makes one footnote per citation, doesn't it? –  Joseph Wright Feb 20 '11 at 7:45
    
@Joseph: Yes, it does, but it doesn't repeat the whole bibliographic information every time, and I assumed that was the aim of the OP @Deyaa. –  lockstep Feb 20 '11 at 13:33
    
@lockstep: 'I want to place just one footnote for replicated citations ...' to me sounds like a single (numbered) footnote. Now, if I can work out how to do that ... –  Joseph Wright Feb 20 '11 at 13:36
    
@Joseph: Ah ... you mean, some trick with repeated footnote numbers involving \footnotemark? In this case, I have now clue right now (plus, such a solution seems potentially confusing to me). Maybe @Deyaa can comment. –  lockstep Feb 20 '11 at 13:42
    
@lockstep: That's how I see it (similar to a numbered bibliography but in footnotes). –  Joseph Wright Feb 20 '11 at 13:44
