# 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 '14 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 '14 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 '14 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.
