# What is the right way to use hyperref options with Tufte handout class?

EDIT: I must clarify that the example below works with tufte-latex-3.5.0, but doesn't work in older versions. The accepted solution is a good workaround for older versions (<3.0.0) were nohyper option doesn't work.

(EDIT: Older version of) tufte-handout class doesn't seem to play well with hyperref, probably because tufte-handout loads hyperref with its own set of options. How can I set up the document so that hyperref can be loaded normally?

I thought that the option nohyper would solve the problem but it doesn't.

The idea is to be able to have a simple document that compiles correctly whether I change tufte-handout by article in the \documentclass command.

Here is an example code (not working)

\documentclass[nohyper]{tufte-handout}
% but works with \documentclass{article}
\usepackage[hyperfootnotes=false, pdftex, pdfauthor={}, pdftitle={ hyperref.pdf}, pdfsubject={subject}, pdfkeywords={}]{hyperref}
% but works with \usepackage[hyperfootnotes=false,]{hyperref}
\begin{document}
Body text.
\end{document}

What hyperref options do you want to set/change with the tufte-handout class? Can you use the \hypersetup command? –  godbyk Aug 9 '12 at 22:05
Any option in hyperref seems to break the compatibility (for example, the ones in the example in my question). hypersetup (+1) is an option but I just wanted to change the documentclass line, for things that already compiled for article. –  alfC Aug 9 '12 at 22:14

You can use the \@ifpackageloaded command to run other commands depending on whether or not the hyperref package has already been loaded.

\documentclass{tufte-handout}% or article

\makeatletter
% (e.g., if you're using the tufte-handout
% document class)
\hypersetup{
pdfauthor={},
pdftitle={Tufte-LaTeX document},
pdfsubject={subject},
pdfkeywords={}
}%
}{%
% do this if the hyperref package hasn't
\usepackage[
hyperfootnotes=false,
pdftex,
pdfauthor={},
pdftitle={article},
pdfsubject={subject},
pdfkeywords={}]{hyperref}
}
\makeatother

\begin{document}
Body text.
\end{document}

Thank you, I also figured out that nohyper option doesn't work for old versions of tufte-latex. For that your solution is a good workaround. –  alfC Aug 10 '12 at 18:24
@alfC: The nohyper option was added to the code May 19, 2009. So it looks like it should exist in all versions after (but not including) 3.0.0. –  godbyk Aug 10 '12 at 20:02
