I am using TeXShop and BibDesk on Mac and even though I add "webpage" entries to BibDesk, they don't show up in TeXShop.added entry


Also, I get these extra citation numbers at the end of my document: why

when I don't have anything after the references.

What is wrong? I have the correct packages, I think:

EDIT: I was able to get rid of the extra reference numbers by adding a \nocite{*} and deleting the references.






and in the PANs.bib file, I have

    Author = {NFC Forum},
    Date-Added = {2014-05-05 12:12:03 +0000},
    Date-Modified = {2014-05-05 13:39:56 +0000},
    Lastchecked = {5 May 2014},
    Title = {What is NFC?},
    Url = {http://nfc-forum.org/what-is-nfc/},
    Urldate = {5 May 2014},
    Year = {2014}}

As can be seen in ftp://ftp.springer.de/pub/tex/latex/llncs/latex2e/splncs.bst, splncs does not provide support for a url key, so it is silently ignored.

You may want to add the URL in a note field (using \url{URL}, remember to load the url package).

  • I tried, but urls still do not show.

  • So what exactly is your problem? I do not get any references in [...], you I'm geussing, you are not telling us the whole truth. BTW: the splncs03.bst, does support the url key.
