  3. The best answers are voted up and rise to the top

This is what I have at the top:


This is the bibligraphic entry:

      author = {Dana Lynn Driscoll and Allen Brizee},
      title = {On Paragraphs},
      note = "[Web. 17 April. 2010.]",
      year = {2010},
      uhowpublished = "\url{http://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/resource/606/01/}"

The entry does not show up in the document after compiling it. If I remove [style=mla,guessmedium=false], then the entry appears.

I must have the bibliography in MLA format.

  1. Use the entry online instead of misc
  2. biblatex supports the field url
  3. use the field urldate

The entry should look like this:

author = {Dana Lynn Driscoll and Allen Brizee},
title = {On Paragraphs},
urldate = "2011-04-17",
year = {2010},
url = "http://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/resource/606/01/"

This too did not work. I am using Latext 2009 from Ubuntu repositories. – nixnotwin Dec 8 '11 at 1:02
@nixnotwin: You should install TeX Live manual. Or do you have some problems with that? – Marco Daniel Dec 8 '11 at 1:11
I have to submit my report in few hours. So for the time being I will delete that web citation. By the weekend I will try to install the new version of Latex. – nixnotwin Dec 8 '11 at 1:28
@nixnotwin: In this case you can wrote everything in the note key. – Marco Daniel Dec 8 '11 at 10:17
