Issue #972 duplicate

Footnote back-reference not working for citations

Anonymous created an issue

With this minimal example (and possibly text added between the citation and the footnote) for citations taken from , the back-reference linking back from the footnote to the original citation is not working right. For footnote, it works, but for citations, the id which the back-reference links to is never created in the html document. In other words, add lots of lines of text between the citation and footnote, click on the first citation and you get taken to the bottom of the page. Click on the back-link, and nothing happens, whereas one should get taken back up.

Thanks so much for sphinx, it is really awesome!! Thanks for all your work!
