I am using the biblatex package, and I'd like to reproduce an effect similar to the one required in this question.

biblatex's standard \citeauthor{bibid} command puts in the authors name, but without a hyper link, or the year in which the article was written. I tried looking through the documentation for biblatex, but couldn't find a high level command at the level of autocite that would simply reproduce what I am looking for.

What are my options?

  • If you really use biblatex, its authoryear style is the way to go. Of course, you would not cite with \citeauthor{bibid}, but with \cite{bibid}, \parencite{bibid} or \textcite{bibid}. – moewe Apr 6 '14 at 15:27

I think it would be clearer if you stated directly what you want instead of referring to that other question. I may have misunderstood what you want but to cite author and year the normal commands are \textcite and \parencite. To get a link you need the hyperref package.

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage[style=authoryear]{biblatex}
\addbibresource{biblatex-examples.bib}
\usepackage[colorlinks]{hyperref}

\begin{document}
\textcite{westfahl:space}
\printbibliography

\end{document}
