# Configuring a biblatex bibliography style

I just switched from natbib to biber + biblatex, and the closest bibliography style to my preferred style is "ieee" (by Joseph Wright). I am using it with the citation style "authoryear". This makes the numbers in the bibliography useless; how do I remove them?

Did you consider the ieee-alphabetic style? –  Joseph Wright Jun 27 '12 at 8:12
@JosephWright: I just tried that, but it adds [AuthYear] marks in the bibliography. Since I'm using the citation style author-year, I probably don't need those. Essentially, I want "ieeetrann" from natbib. Is there an easy way to get that? –  Neil G Jun 27 '12 at 8:16

I can't test it right now, but it should be possible to load biblatex with the options citestyle=authoryear,bibstyle=ieee and then to add authoryear's bibenvironment definition to the preamble:

\usepackage[citestyle=authoryear,bibstyle=ieee]{biblatex}

\defbibenvironment{bibliography}
{\list
{}
{\setlength{\leftmargin}{\bibhang}%
\setlength{\itemindent}{-\leftmargin}%
\setlength{\itemsep}{\bibitemsep}%
\setlength{\parsep}{\bibparsep}}}
{\endlist}
{\item}

Beautiful! It worked. –  Neil G Jun 27 '12 at 8:29
