# Biblatex citation: two articles same author, year - years printed in full?

I am citing two articles by the same author in the same year, referenced by the keys auth00a and auth00b. With the authoryear-comp style, I can use textcite{auth00a,auth00b} but this gives me "Author (2000a,b)" in the result. I would much rather have "Author (2000a, 2000b)"; that is, the years in full. Is there an easy way to do this? Thanks!

Add the following lines in the preamble (package xpatch is needed):

\usepackage{xpatch}
\xpatchbibmacro{textcite}
{\setunit{\compcitedelim}\usebibmacro{cite:labelyear+extrayear}}
{}
{}


MWE:

\documentclass{article}

\usepackage[backend=biber,style=authoryear-comp]{biblatex}

\usepackage{xpatch}
\xpatchbibmacro{textcite}
{\setunit{\compcitedelim}\usebibmacro{cite:labelyear+extrayear}}
{}
{}

\usepackage{filecontents}
\begin{filecontents*}{\jobname.bib}
@article{auth00a,
author = {Author},
title = {MyBook A},
date = {2000}
}
@article{auth00b,
author = {Author},
title = {MyBook B},
date = {2000}
}
\end{filecontents*}
