How can I drive citation tracking to include \citetitle command using biblatex?

I 'm using verbose-trad1 style. I have this result using \cite{x} command.

As you can see, cite tracking works fine, but if I use \citetitle{x} cite tracking does not work. (That's ok and, of course, it is mentioned at biblatex doc.) What I want is to avoid citing the author, even in the first cite. But, of course, if I use \citetitle command, I lose cite tracking. Is there a way to modifiy \citetitle command to include cite tracking?

There are a couple ways to do this. Enabling trackers in the definition of \citetitle won't give you ibidem and shorthand abbreviations without some extra work. Just omitting labelname from \cite can make a (semantic) mess of some abbreviations - namely opcit, loccit and idem.

The code below (hopefully) takes care of these limitations by defining a hook to suppress labelname, author, or editor and fix problematic abbreviations. This hook can be used in the document body or within a definition of a command.

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
\usepackage[american]{babel}
\usepackage{csquotes}

\newbibmacro*{cite:full:noname}{%
\usebibmacro{cite:full:citepages}%
\printtext[bibhypertarget]{%
\usedriver
{\clearname{author}%
\clearname{editor}}
{\thefield{entrytype}}}%
\usebibmacro{shorthandintro}}

\newrobustcmd*{\citetitlehook}{%
\AtNextCite{%
\renewbibmacro*{cite:full}{\usebibmacro{cite:full:noname}}%
\renewbibmacro*{cite:name}{}%
\renewbibmacro*{cite:idem}{}%
\renewbibmacro*{cite:loccit}{\usebibmacro{cite:title}}%
\renewbibmacro*{cite:opcit}{\usebibmacro{cite:title}}}}

\renewrobustcmd*{\citetitle}{\citetitlehook\cite}
\newrobustcmd*{\citetitles}{\citetitlehook\cites}
\newrobustcmd*{\parencitetitle}{\citetitlehook\parencite}
\newrobustcmd*{\parencitetitles}{\citetitlehook\parencites}
\newrobustcmd*{\autocitetitle}{\citetitlehook\autocite}
\newrobustcmd*{\autocitetitles}{\citetitlehook\autocites}
\newrobustcmd*{\footcitetitle}{\citetitlehook\footcite}
\newrobustcmd*{\footcitetitles}{\citetitlehook\footcites}

\begin{document}
\null\vfill\noindent
Citetitle: \citetitle{kant:kpv}.
Parencitetitle: \parencite{kant:kpv}.
Autocitetitle.\autocitetitle[10]{companion}
Footcite with recurrent entry.\footcite[10]{companion}
Footcites with recurrent entry+page.\footcites{knuth:ct,knuth:ct:a}[10]{companion}
Footcite with recurrent author.\footcite{knuth:ct,knuth:ct:a}

\end{document}

@AudreyGreat! Thank you so much. The new command \footcitetitle works fine, but \citetitlehook does not work if I want to cite inline. So I created another commmand called \citeonlytitle and... it worked! My question is: should \citetitlehook have worked or is it a kind of "private command"? –  Gastón Oct 20 '11 at 11:27
@Mario No problem. \citetitlehook should work in the document body. I'll revise the post to better demonstrate its range of use. –  Audrey Oct 20 '11 at 14:03
\citetitlehook doesn't work in my document body. But \renewrobustcmd*{\citetitle}{\citetitlehook\cite} (or \newrobustcmd*{\citeonlytitle}{\citetitlehook\cite}) solves my problem. Thanks. –  Gastón Oct 20 '11 at 15:10
@Mario Strange. Doesn't work in the example I posted, or in your actual document? –  Audrey Oct 20 '11 at 15:16
I've tested your example and I've realized that I didn't understand the way I must use \citetitlehook: it doesn't work alone, but like a tool to switch the biblatex commands like \footcite. Sorry for the misunderstanding. New commands work fine with your example and my actual document. –  Gastón Oct 20 '11 at 20:01
