# Show table footnotes at the end of the page

I have a table which contains footnotes. I want these footnotes to appear at the end of the page, but nothing is displaying. However footnote numbers are there in the table. I have tried doing this but it didn't work for me.

This is my table code:

\documentclass{book}

\usepackage{booktabs}

\usepackage{url}
\usepackage{tabularx}
\usepackage{ragged2e}
\usepackage{makecell}

\begin{document}

\begin{table}[hbtp]
\centering
\begin{tabularx}{\textwidth}{ c >{\RaggedRight}X }
\toprule
\textbf{$e_\#$} & \makecell[cc]{\textbf{Description}} \\
\midrule
1 & Cathedral of Notre Dame fire during restorations work\footnote{https://www.nytimes.com/es/2019/04/15/not\
2 & Beginning of Semana Santa' vacances in Madrid\footnote{https://www.abc.es/espana/madrid/abci-semana-san\
3 & World Art Day\footnote{http://www.aimdigital.com.ar/15-de-abril-dia-mundial-del-arte/}. \\ \addlinespace
4 & Max Pradera, an Spanish journalist, posted an unfortunate comment about Almudena Cathedral and Notre Dam\
5 & Premiere of the last season of Game of Thrones\footnote{https://www.elmundo.es/television/2019/04/09/5ca\
c665ffc6c8393168b46eb.html}. \\
\bottomrule
\end{tabularx}
\caption{April 15th 2019 most important events}
\label{tab:april-events}
\end{table}

\end{document}

• What packages and documentclass do you use? Just including tabularx does not let me compile your table. Could you include a minimal working example (MWE)? – Taunch May 24 at 9:11
• @Taunch Sorry, I didn't know what to post so I updated my question with my whole main.tex – Luiscri May 24 at 9:35
• OK, that was a bit too much ;) I've edited your question so that the example remains "minimal", meaning that only things related to your question (= the table) remain. (The code would have also not compiled, since you seem to use a custom ´thesis.sty´) – Taunch May 24 at 9:50
• @Taunch Right, I also added it to the question (I may have provided again too much) – Luiscri May 24 at 9:57
• Ah, you really don't need that now, the new MWE does not rely on it anymore and compiles just fine on its own. – Taunch May 24 at 10:03

So, I've played around a bit and the quick fix seems to be using parnotes and a dirty hack to create new lines. It's not the most elegant solution, but it hopefully does what you want it to do.

\documentclass{book}

\usepackage{booktabs}
\usepackage{tabularx}
\usepackage{ragged2e}
\usepackage{makecell}

\usepackage{parnotes} % for footnotes in tables

\begin{document}

\begin{table}[hbtp]
\centering
\begin{tabularx}{\textwidth}{ c >{\RaggedRight}X }
\toprule
\textbf{$e_\#$} & \makecell[cc]{\textbf{Description}} \\
\midrule
1 & Cathedral of Notre Dame fire during restorations work\parnote{https://www.nytimes.com/es/2019/04/15/notre-\
dame-incendio/\newline % <--- dirty hack for new lines
3 & World Art Day\parnote{http://www.aimdigital.com.ar/15-de-abril-dia-mundial-del-arte/\newline}. \\ \addline\
space
4 & Max Pradera, an Spanish journalist, posted an unfortunate comment about Almudena Cathedral and Notre Dame\\

It would also be possible to create a \newcommand to encompass the \newlines, depending on how often you need this.
