# How to cite URL in paper (bottom of page in following way)?

I am stuck with problem of citing a URL. Others question don't answer my question so please read. I want to cite url in way shown in picture. I have no idea how to do that and I am very new to latex. I am not using seperate .blb fille just a one latex file.

This picture shows links exactly at the bottom of page on which paragraph is written on. Help appreciated.

As simple as it can be:

With \url (from hyperref):

\documentclass{article}

\begin{document}
Some random text taken from Wikipedia\footnote{\url{https://www.wikipedia.org/}}
\end{document}


Without \url:

\documentclass{article}

\begin{document}
Some random text taken from Wikipedia\footnote{https://www.wikipedia.org/}
\end{document}

• You may also omit the \url if you want the link to be typeset with the same font as the rest of the document. – Phelype Oleinik Jan 25 '18 at 13:38
• I now see citation but dont see that horizontal seperation line! How do i bring that? – minigeek Jan 25 '18 at 13:54
• The line is there by default with the article class. If you don't have it then you are using some package or document class that removes the line. There's no way to tell without seeing your code. Post a question with a compilable minimal working example (MWE) that shows the footnote without the line so we can find out how to fix it for you. – Phelype Oleinik Jan 25 '18 at 14:05
• Right, I just told myself while reading the question "that's not a citation, that's just a footnote. – thymaro Jan 25 '18 at 19:01
