I'll try to be as clear as possible. I use texshop 2.47 on my Mac with bibdesk. So far I wrote an article for ACS journal with their package. At the moment I'm working on my PhD thesis. I found this nice template which is using:

\documentclass[11pt, a4paper, openright, twoside]{Thesis}
\usepackage[square, numbers, comma, sort&compress]{natbib}

The template is really well done. So I got two main problems: - I can't generate a5 .pdf (if I write a5paper the pdf is still a4 for some reason) - The bibliography is generated correctly but also shows me doi, url and title, which I don't want.

Now I've been reading a bit, most people suggest to switch to BibLaTeX or others. I personally don't want to play too much around with it, but I thought there must be a simple solution. The way I would like to generate the pdf is in a5 format (so I see how it looks when it will be printed) and with the several references with full authors list (not Smith et al.) and all the other information (except title, doi, url).

The authors of this template create a thesis.cls which can be found here (http://www.latextemplates.com/template/masters-doctoral-thesis)

EDIT: \documentclass[11pt, b5paper, openright, twoside]{Thesis} \usepackage[square,numbers,comma,sort&compress]{natbib}


\bibliographystyle{unsrtnat} \bibliography{Bibliography}

Welcome to TeX.SX. Usually, we don't put a greeting or a "thank you" in our posts. While this might seem strange at first, it is not a sign of lack of politeness, but rather part of our trying to keep everything very concise. Accepting and upvoting answers is the preferred way here to say "thank you" to users who helped you. – Claudio Fiandrino Mar 18 '13 at 10:51
Side comment: it is usually a bad idea to have commands before \documentclass, unless you really know what you are doing. – Andrew Swann Mar 18 '13 at 11:10
The class you're using doesn't support different paper sizes. You can look at this answer where I suggested some changes to it, in particular for the page parameters. You can play with the suggested options to the \geometry command, adding also a5paper. – egreg Mar 18 '13 at 11:59
If the problem is the class Thesis, then I should better stay away from it. I did edit as egreg suggest in this post[tex.stackexchange.com/questions/102373/… the thesis.cls! Now give me some error due to this commands which are repeated few times in the main.tex \setstretch{1.3} so i just uncomment all of those. – DavideF. Mar 18 '13 at 12:39
