### Page numbers in footnotes, but not in bibliography

Hello Everyone.

I would like to create a document, where when i do \autocite{}, I will get a footnote citing the author, title, year and page numbers, and then in the bibliography, it will have the same, but page number is replaced by publisher. Is there any way to do this?

Right now i am using BibLaTeX-chicago with biber backend.

The footbib package should be able to handle this; use a different bibliography style in the bibliography than you do in the footnotes.

If you want your command to work as I think you intend it, try this:
1. \documentclass{article}
2. \usepackage{footbib}
3. \newcommand*{\autocite}[1]{\nocite{#1}\footcite{#1}}
4. \footbibliographystyle{unsrt}
5. \footbibliography{my_database}
6. \begin{document}
7. This is my work\autocite{a_paper,b_paper}
8. \bibliographystyle{plain}
9. \bibliography{my_database}
10. \end{document}

The \autocite command I wrote here is not as robust as the originals; in particular, it won't handle an optional argument the way the original commands do.
