# ytick=\empty not working with semilogyaxis

see what's below. I can't compile it. It works with xtick=\empty though.

\documentclass[12pt]{book}
\usepackage{tikz,pgfplots}
\begin{document}
\begin{tikzpicture}
\begin{semilogyaxis}[ytick=\empty]
coordinates{(1, 1)(2, 5)(3, 20)};
\end{semilogyaxis}
\end{tikzpicture}
\end{document}

where can i get this bugfix? i have the same problem ... –  user9670 Nov 29 '11 at 12:16
@Joseph unfortunately, it was the first bugfix AFTER the stable release. I hope to make the next bugfix release before christmas (or after christmas). –  Christian Feuersänger Nov 29 '11 at 22:01
@Alex you can get the bugfix at pgfplots.sourceforge.net -- download the "unstable" version and install it into some local directory. The pgfplots manual contains instructions how to adapt your TeX installation to use the local directory. –  Christian Feuersänger Nov 29 '11 at 22:02
@ChristianFeuersänger That's why for siunitx I have two branches :-) Thanks for the update. –  Joseph Wright Nov 29 '11 at 22:12
@Joseph I can "best" that: currently, I have 7 for pgfplots :) (stable, master, unstable, and some very special feature branches which are more-or-less in experimental state). But nevertheless, the release cycles are still longer than I would like. Releasing always takes at least two days of careful work to avoid stupid compatibility mistakes :( –  Christian Feuersänger Nov 29 '11 at 22:40

Using ytick={} should do the trick.

Alternatively adapting the solution from tick removal with pfgplots

\documentclass[12pt]{book}
\usepackage{tikz,pgfplots}
\begin{document}
\begin{tikzpicture}
\begin{semilogyaxis}[ytick style={draw=none}]
coordinates{(1, 1)(2, 5)(3, 20)};
\end{semilogyaxis}
\end{tikzpicture}
\end{document}

not for me, unfortunately. It looks like it is a bug since it is wroking well with axis. –  pluton Aug 1 '11 at 20:54
See updated solution. –  Peter Grill Aug 1 '11 at 20:59
thanks but it's still a problem since the exact same code with xtick works fine. –  pluton Aug 1 '11 at 23:08
Submit this as a pgfplots possible bug report here by clicking on the Add new link. –  Werner Aug 2 '11 at 17:51
@Werner thanks for the report, I read it here. I confirm that this is a bug - sorry about that. I have a preliminary bugfix ready at hand. –  Christian Feuersänger Aug 2 '11 at 19:46
