# How to cite only quoted page number to put after a quotion using biblatex

According to APA-style rules, a quoting page number should always appear after the quote itself.

using in text citations, this would look like:

Palladino and Wade’s (2010) results indicate that “a flexible mind is a healthy mind” (p. 147).

Im having trouble to reproduce this using biblatex and \textcite. Using \autocite still gives me the year and page, not only the page.

MWE

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage[style=authoryear-comp]{biblatex}
\usepackage{filecontents}
\usepackage{csquotes}

\begin{filecontents}{\jobname.bib}
@book{key,
author = {Author, A.},
year = {2001},
title = {Title},
publisher = {Publisher},
}
\end{filecontents}

\begin{document}

\textcite[11]{key} mentioned this as "\textelp{} foo bar.".\\
\textcite{key} mentioned this as "\textelp{} foo bar."\autocite*[11]{key}.

\printbibliography

\end{document}


\pnotecite should help you here. Like \notecite it only prints the optional pre- and postnote arguments and no real citation. But as the name suggests, it also adds parentheses around the output.

\documentclass[british]{article}
\usepackage{babel}
\usepackage{csquotes}
\usepackage[style=authoryear-comp]{biblatex}

If you want full APA style, you may want to consider using biblatex-apa's style=apa instead of style=authoryear-comp.
