I would like to insert a url in a footnote but that isn't working.

I use the following code :

\usepackage[left=3cm, right=2.5cm, top=2.65cm, bottom=2.65cm]{geometry}

and the problem is in this "sentence" :

\,\footnote{La vidéo réalisée à l'effet du projet Arqana Racing Club est visible sur le lien suivant : \url{http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=5o0t29uwTQc#!}}

Could you help me please ?

    You should load the hyperref package the last. And, could you please get rid of unnecessary packages so that, you get to a MWE: note that a MWE is a complete example beginning with \documentclass ending with \end{document}

  • But, you have loaded this package before a couple of other packages. Make that the last loaded one, by moving it to the end. Further, hyperref package loads url, so I don't think you don't have to load it.

  • Escape & and # in the argument of \url. In other words, substitute \& for & and \# for #; that should solve the problem.

The @Jubobs' comment is right.

I forgot substitute & and # by \& and #.

That is working like that. Thanks.

  • A tip: You can use backticks ` to mark your inline code.

  • You do not have to escape the & character.
