# Append text to biblatex footnote citation

Does biblatex allow to append arbitrary comments to footnote citations?

For example, I now have this code:

Lorem ipsum.\autocite[2]{foobar}


And it gives this at the bottom of the page:

Foobar, p. 2.

The result I'm after is:

Foobar, p. 2. What a cute little comment.

Where should I put "What a cute little comment." for it to appear in the footnote?

-
\footnote{\textcite[2]{foobar}. What a cute little comment.}? –  egreg Mar 15 at 18:48
Worked. Thank you, egreg. I had to replace \textcite with \cite though, because the particular citation style I use disliked it. –  Mihai Nagy Mar 15 at 19:00
You could also use \autocite[\pno~2. What a cute little comment.]{foobar} (biblatex drops the page prefix if it finds that the postnote is not a number, we have to re-insert it manually via´\pno, use \ppno for more than one page.) –  moewe Mar 15 at 19:13

A command such as \footcite (which your bibliographic style translates \autocite to) is meant for just a citation.
\footnote{\cite[2]{foobar}. A nice comment follows.}

One might object that \autocite` allows for simply changing the style from footnote citations to in-text ones, but in this case a comment wouldn't find its place naturally in the text flow.
