# How can I put a reference at the end of the page using LaTeX?

I know how to use cite and regard to literature etc. but in that case I want to do something else:

I want something like that:

 Page 1:
bla bla bla

bla bla
bla bla

bla
___________________________________________
[1]: According to Russian grading system with 1: "insufficient" and 5 "excellent"
end of page;


Does anyone know how to do that?

• Is \footnote{} what you want? Nov 1, 2016 at 15:56
• I try to use it with the moderncv class and I want to use it inside a \cventry but it tells me: Use of \@xfootnote doesn't match its definition. \@ifnextchar ...eserved@d =#1\def \reserved@a {#2} Nov 1, 2016 at 16:02
• If you want this to work with moderncv then you should say that in the question, ideally with a basic document which includes \documentclass{moderncv}. I think moderncv has some issues with footnotes inside \cventry which may be a separate question to fix. Nov 1, 2016 at 16:38
• @J.Doe Welcome to TeX.SX! You can help us to help you by providing the code for a small document that shows your problem. Just edit your question and add the code. Nov 1, 2016 at 16:39
• Does this issue really related to biblatex and csquotes? The tags seem a bit out of place. Nov 1, 2016 at 17:09

You can use the \footnote-command. As long, as you don't have your footnotes looking like the ones, you quoted ("[1|"), this should be fine to you

\documentclass{article}

\begin{document}

Some normal text, which is typeset by Mr. Drofnats, a happy small
computer.\footnote{See the \TeX-Book for more details about Mr. Drofnats}

\end{document}


Ending in the text and the footnote at the end of the page:

You can use with the help of lastpage.sty like below

\pageref{FirstPage} ............. \pageref{LastPage}

• I don't think that solves the question. I think OP is asking for footnotes, right? Nov 8, 2016 at 10:52
