I'm compiling my document using


The citations work fine but they are completely out of order - 8, 9, 1, 10, 7, 17 - and I don't know what causes it. The only thing before the actual document is a table of contents which does not contain any citations.

All the answers I've found come down to "use \bibliographystyle{unsrt}" which is impossible as the command is incompatible with Biblatex.

    \usepackage[sorting=none,backend=bibtex]{biblatex}? – cfr Jul 16 '15 at 17:39
  • I've edited your question. You can roll back if I'm wrong. But you are using Biblatex with the BibTeX backend, I think. If you have that \usepackage line there, that's what you are doing. – cfr Jul 16 '15 at 17:41
  • I have that line without "sorting=none". Should I add that? – blackbird Jul 16 '15 at 18:09
  • If you want the equivalent of \bibliographystyle{unsrt}, yes. – Bernard Jul 16 '15 at 18:17
