When clicking on the link in the footnote that should jump to the first appearances of a source, it is jumped to the first page of the document instead.

What I have so far:


  author = {Highfield, R. },
  title = {God Controls by Liberating},
  pages = {141--164},
  year = 2011,
  crossref = "fourviewsdivineprovidence"

  author = {Craig, William Lane},
  title = {Response to Ron Highfield},
  pages = {165--175},
  year = 2011,
  crossref = "fourviewsdivineprovidence"

  booktitle={Four Views on Divine Providence},
  author={Craig, W.L. and Highfield, R. and Boyd, G.A. and Helseth, P.K. and Jowers, D. and Gundry, S.N.}, 
  series={Counterpoints: Bible and Theology}, 

in the text then:

blabla \autocite[143]{HighfieldPosition_FourViews}.
\end{quotation} blabla \autocite[175]{CraigPosition_FourViews}

The warning when compiling

pdfTeX warning (dest): name{cite.0:fourviewsdivineprovidence} has been referenc ed but does not exist, replaced by a fixed one

Output looks good but wrong link. The blue "cit" jumps to page "i" : enter image description here

What can I do to get the right page in the blue link?


Here a complete example

\documentclass[a4paper, 11pt, oneside]{article} 


% http://tex.stackexchange.com/a/58040/25029
        {\iffirstonpage% NEW
           {\usebibmacro{cite:name}% NEW
            \usebibmacro{cite:title}}% NEW
%       \usebibmacro{cite:save}}% DELETED
        \usebibmacro{cite:save}}}% NEW

\addbibresource{Bibliography.bib}% Syntax for version >= 1.2  

% http://tex.stackexchange.com/a/16269/25029
\hypersetup{urlcolor=blue, colorlinks=true}  % Colours hyperlinks in blue, but this can be distracting if there are many links.

  • Please add a minimal working example (MWE) that illustrates your problem. It will be much easier for us to reproduce your situation and find out what the issue is when we see compilable code, starting with \documentclass{...} and ending with \end{document}.

  • The redefinition from the answer in the link does seem to be quite specific to verbose-trad2. verbose-trad2 does have quite a lot of hyperlink stuff definition in the .cbx file, so there might be quite a lot of work involved to make it work with philosophy-verbose.

  • so no solution for philosophy-verbose so far? no workaround either?

  • I do not think it will be easy, simply beacuse you want the citation to link to a different citation of a different source. Plus, the output as you have in your screenshot is not helpful at all since the reader has no way of knowing what the "cit." refers to. How is (s)he to know that the "cit." refers to the last work something was cited in?

    I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because the problem cannot be reproduced with a recent version of biblatex and biblatex-philosophy.
