I'm using biblatex with verbose-ibid style. For one of the @article entries, I have the following:

  title = {IBM wants Minneapolis to become a 'smarter city'},
  author = {Alexander, Steve},
  journal = {Minneapolis Star Tribune},
  url = {http://www.startribune.com/business/123289493.html},
  year = "2011",
  month = "6"

which renders as: enter image description here

How can I customize year (and month and day) so that it's not enclosed by parentheses?

  Alexander, Steve, "IBM wants Minneapolis to become a 'smarter city.'"
  Minneapolis Star Tribune. June 2011. URL: http://www.startribune.com/business/123289493.html.

The solution here fixed it:

  \setunit{\addcomma\space}% NEW
%  \printtext[parens]{% DELETED
%       \usebibmacro{date}}}% DELETED
       \usebibmacro{date}}% NEW
