So I'm trying to cite a website using apacite. According to my teacher, the output has to look like:

New child vaccine gets funding boost. (2001). Retrieved March 21, 2001, from http://news.ninemsn.com.au/health/story_13178.asp

After finding out apacite doesn't allow for @online, I added the following to my BiBTeX file

  title = {Elements, Atoms, and Molecules},
  year = {1996},
  urldate = {April 1, 2012},
  url = {http://www.nyu.edu/pages/mathmol/textbook/compounds.html}

but that prints out:

Elements, atoms, and molecules. (1996).

How do I get it to show URL and retrieved date? I only have 2 websites, so I can enter them manually, but I can't even figure out how to do that.

This is a very useful question for many people (whoever uses APA style and wants to cite a website), and it is very careless of you to have closed it, @lockstep – retrography Mar 27 at 1:32
