I often want to cite with pp.78, denoting page 78 and following. Is there a way to do that directly in a way of \autocite[78]{title}?

You know that 'p' is usually for a single page and 'pp' for a range of pages? – Joseph Wright Feb 23 '11 at 10:06
Yes, but I've been taught that it is sufficient to cite the first page and use ff (in Germany) or pp. if the cite refers to the following pages as well. – Owe Jessen Feb 23 '11 at 10:50

Write \autocite[78\psq]{title} or \autocite[78\psqq]{title}. See sections 3.7.8 Miscellaneous Commands and 3.12.3 Page Numbers in Citations of the biblatex manual for details.

EDIT: My answer may be the "usual" way to denote "following" pages, but it's not what you want. Write \autocite[\ppno~78]{title} to force a page range.

Thanks for the quick answer... and sorry for not reading the manual good enough. – Owe Jessen Feb 23 '11 at 10:47
