I'm using Biblatex and having trouble getting an @ONLINE to cite correctly in the bibliography. Here's the preamble:


I have an entry in my bibliography that looks like this:

    author = {Alex Franz and Thosten Brants},
    organization = {Google Machine Translation Team},
    url = {http://googleresearch.blogspot.com/2006/08/all-our-n-gram-are-belong-to-you.html},
    title = {All Our N-Gram are Belong to You},
    month = aug,
    year = {2006},

After \printbibliography, the citation gets printed without any url in the bibliography, like this: "Alex Franz and Thosten Brants. Google Machine Translation Team." How do I get it to print the date and URL?

Very strange, I've tested what you are doing, and I'm getting printed the url in the reference section.

By the way, I'm using pdflatex and compile the bib file with bibtex.

The minimal test I did is this:


\title{Minimal test}


Perhaps you could see in detail the logfile you get when compiling your latex file.

    Yours works for me as well. Time for some investigation... – Nate Glenn May 17 '11 at 23:33
  • You could show your preamble, so we can see it and perhaps someone knows what is happening... – Nicolás Ozimica May 18 '11 at 5:02
  • The problem went away when I restarted my IDE (TexMaker). Not sure if I should delete this post or post this as my answer... – Nate Glenn May 21 '11 at 2:35

This problem resolved itself when I restarted my IDE (TexMaker).
