I recently started using biblatex and I'm looking for some custom cite commands. The \footfullcite takes up too much space so I wanted to create some \footcite command myself that would only produce lets say the title, url, and urldate.

The readme tells me where to look for the definitions of the commands so I can change them.

Looking up the \footfullcite macro I get this:


There are not too many lines of code but I don't see how I could change it so it only shows the title, url and urldate. Could anyone give me a small example of how to make/change such a cite command?

I started with the \citetitle command and added the functionality of the url+urldate bibmacro (plus punctuation and spacing).





  author = {Author, A.},
  year = {2001},
  title = {Alpha},
  url = {tex.stackexchange.com},
  urldate = {2011-02-12}



Some text.\footcitetitleurl{A01}
