I'm using the authoryear-comp style with biblatex. But when using citing commands, instead of p/pp. I would rather have a colon. I have tried these:

\DeclareFieldFormat{postnote}{: #1}
\DeclareFieldFormat{multipostnote}{: #1}

but get , : instead.

How can I remove the comma in citations?

You also need to redefine \postnotedelim:






  author = {Author, A.},
  year = {2001},
  title = {Alpha},



Some text \autocite[99]{A01}.
