# Fix for biblatex-MLA in TeX Live 2011

I'm trying to fix an error I get when trying to use biblatex-mla 0.9.5 with Biblatex 1.7

Unfortunately, I get

``````! Undefined control sequence.
<argument> \biburldatelong
``````

Which I believe was a supported command in earlier Biblatex versions. Failing this, is there any other way I can get MLA-style citations using Biblatex and Biber?

Are you using long dates? If not, what happens if you use `\providecommand\biburldatelong{}` after loading `biblatex`? (Sorry, I'd need to download `biblatex-mla` to test a more robust solution.) – jon Jul 12 '12 at 20:09
@jon nope, and that seems to have fixed it. Can you add your comment as an answer? – urschrei Jul 12 '12 at 20:31
Sure. I added a brief answer. But someone may still come along with a real one. – jon Jul 13 '12 at 0:13

``````\providecommand{\biburldatelong}{}
after `biblatex` is loaded. But this is not a robust solution, especially (I imagine) if one is using long form dates.
