# biblatex-chicago not properly formatting citations after latest texlive

I have the following in my preamble:

\usepackage[notes,natbib,backend=biber,idemtracker=context,ibidtracker=context]{biblatex-chicago}


This should, in the first instance of a citation (in this case, an article), output something like:

Joshua I. Weinstein, “The Market in Plato’s Republic,” Classical Philology 104 (2009): 440.

(that's taken from the Chicago Manual's own website)

Instead, what I see in the document output by xelatex is something like this:

Weinstein ("The Market in Plato's Republic")

This is definitively wrong, and I can't figure out what format that's supposed to be (natbib?). This started happening after the texlive update last October (2014), and has persisted ever since.

I am using lyx. Any advice?

Thanks,

EE

EDIT: MWE follows. Notice, the citation in the footnote is formatted incorrectly: It should appear exactly as it does in the bibliography.

Biber does not throw any errors. No, I cannot compile any documents with biblatex files such that they properly follow Chicago style.

Here is how that entry looks in my .bib file (the one named bookbib.bib):

@Article{adams1993effects,
Author         = {Adams, B.J. and Fields, L. and Verhave, T.},
Title          = {Effects of test order on intersubject variability
during equivalence class formation.},
Journal        = {The Psychological Record},
publisher      = {Kenyon Coll Psychology Dept},
year           = 1993
}


I'm using Lyx, which adds in its own modules and then applies modules listed in the preamble; this is likely the reason for the doubled module entries. I'll reply to the citation commands in the answer thread below, as I can't see them while editing =/

• Without a complete MWE there is really not a lot we can do from here. Did you make sure that Biber ran successfully? What do the logs say - especially the .blg file? Can you compile other biblatex documents to your satisfaction? – moewe Feb 5 '15 at 2:27
• MWE added above – user242047 Feb 7 '15 at 8:00
• Could you also add an example BibTeX database entry? – Joseph Wright Feb 7 '15 at 8:19
• Note that you note certain packages multiple times. You MWE does not compile on my machine. If you however use \footcite[See][]{wilde} instead of \footnote{See \citet{wilde}.}, you will see something quite close to your taste. If you insist on this construction, try \footnote{See \cite{wilde}.} (Note that this is \cite not \citet!) – moewe Feb 7 '15 at 8:23
• this MWE will not compile without the .bib file that it includes. Editing the example above to add that entry from the .bib file. – user242047 Feb 7 '15 at 14:58

Here is a working MWE that demonstrates correct usage of biblatex-chicago. See if you can adapt this to your own setup and if it still works for you.

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{filecontents} % for example
\begin{filecontents}{usermwe.bib}
@Article{Weinstein:MarketPlato,
author=       {Weinstein, Joshua I.},
title=        {The Market in Plato's Republic},
journaltitle= {Classical Philology},
volume=       104,
year=         2009,
pages=        440,
}
\end{filecontents}
% But note that the pages should be the complete page range.
