It looks like it was a bug in luatex. This seems to have been fixed in the latest version of luatex, version 0.80.0, as provided in texlive 2015-pretest. Using these versions, the output is as expected:

I can't find any tool which can split a ODT file to standalone pages, so I think easiest way is to make a script which will create a TeX file for each card and call oolatex on these files. We can create one big .bbl file which include all records from a bib file and use this file for each file. The Lua script makecards.lua: local bibfile = arg[1] local ...

Starting from version 2.9 of biblatex (with this commit) data model macros (like \DeclareDatamodelEntrytypes, DeclareDatamodelFields, \DeclareDatamodelEntryfields, ... a full list can be found in §4.5.3 Data Model Specification, pp. 156-161 of the biblatex documentation) are disabled in the preamble and yield only a warning along the lines of Data model ...

I wholeheartedly agree with jon that a bibliography file is something a lot of thoughts and manual labour should go into to make sure the information is as accurate as possible; there are so many subtleties and corner cases that a script or other automation cannot catch. I also agree fully with his advice Invest the time (even if not for this task) to ...

This code should do what you want (with a suggestion of @Moewe): \documentclass{article} \usepackage[american]{babel} \usepackage{csquotes} \usepackage[backend=biber,style=authoryear,maxcitenames=2,maxbibnames=50,firstinits=true,uniquelist=false,uniquename=init,isbn=false,doi=false,useprefix=true]{biblatex} \DeclareNameAlias{sortname}{last-first} ...

You state that this entry has no author. However, functionally speaking, "Charleston Mercury" is the author of the piece. Since it's a "corporate author", the field should be author = {{Charleston Mercury}}, (note the double curly braces) to assure that the entry will not be (mis)interpreted as having been written by a person whose first name was ...

One (at least I find) elegant and quite usable way would be a new command, say \sidecite. It will use the same syntax as all the \cite command, but features an optional offset argument enclosed in <> at the beginning. We will use xparse to implement it. First we copy the definition of \footcite from the relevant .cbx style file (in your case ...

The relevant macro for short subsequent citations in verbose-trad2 is cite:title. We just modify it to include the volume if maintitle and title coincide. \renewbibmacro*{cite:title}{% \printtext[bibhyperlink]{% \printfield[citetitle]{labeltitle}% \iffieldsequal{maintitle}{title} {\setunit{\addcomma\space}% \printfield{volume}} ...

Since your strings are not the standard strings we need to change the standard via \NewBibliographyString{onlinesource} \DefineBibliographyStrings{english}{% urlseen = {accessed on}, urlfrom = {available at}, onlinesource = {online}, } where we also add the new "Online" string. Then what you want can be done via some reformatting of the url and ...

The definitions for the abbreviations of the months are in language.lbx files, in your case in the english.lbx file. To modify the behaviour, you can use the local customisation command (see Section 3.8 of the biblatex manual, textbook biblatex) \DefineBibliographyString{english}{ march = {Mar}, april = {Apr} }

biblatex's standard styles have no trouble (and no scruple) at all to display a url and urldate for @books or any other entry type. This feature can be turned off via url=off, in which case only @online entries retain their URLs (see §3.1.2.2 Style-specific [Preamble Options], p. 55 of the biblatex documentation). Most custom styles available from CTAN ...
