# Creating custom citation style

I want to built a citation definition identical to this form: [Author, [x], Year], where x is the citation number. Is it possible to do such thing? I am using openbib.

Also is there a way that i can find which commands are valid with openbib, a Google search did not give me much.

I use the cite package.

EDIT: I tried replcacing cite with natbib and used the \citet command, which gives following output: (author?) [15], reference number is valid, and the reference has a author.

Openbib is a search engine and not related to LaTeX. However I recommend to use biblatex. –  Marco Daniel May 26 '12 at 12:11
@MarcoDaniel openbib is an old LaTeX2.09 style, I think –  Joseph Wright May 26 '12 at 12:14
I was recommended openbib due to the requirements for my reference list style. tex.stackexchange.com/questions/56628/… If i change to biblatex, how can i maintain such style? –  JavaCake May 26 '12 at 12:23
I replaced my cite package with: \usepackage[numbers]{natbib} Added the plainnat style: \bibliographystyle{plainnat}
And created following definition: \def\citeAuthNumYr#1{[\citeauthor{#1}, \citep{#1}, \citeyear{#1}]}
