I’d like to cite a website including its name, maintainer and URL, but not the access date, in a footnote.

Using the \fullcite command, the whole entry appears in the footnote as well as in the bibliography. Is there a way to keep the access date in the bib file, so that it appears in the bibliography, but to omit it in the citation?

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage[english]{babel}
\usepackage[backend=biber]{biblatex}
\usepackage{csquotes}
\usepackage{filecontents}
\begin{filecontents}{test.bib}
@online{doe2015,
        title = {My Website},
        url = {https://website.org},
        author = {Doe, John},
        urldate = {2015-09-17},
}
\end{filecontents}
\addbibresource{test.bib}
\begin{document}
The fullcite command in a footnote:\footnote{For reference see \fullcite{doe2015}.}
\printbibliography
\end{document}

    Are you really using \ref? Because you should use \cite. Can you add a bit more about what style you are using etc. A MWE is a good way to tell us that. – moewe Sep 17 '15 at 15:24
  • @moewe I wrote this question in a hurry. Sorry for any inconvenience I might have caused. I’ll correct it and write an MWE later today. – Philipp Sep 18 '15 at 6:30
  • @moewe I have specified the question and inserted an MWE. It should be much clearer now. – Philipp Sep 18 '15 at 7:29
  • So you are using the default numeric style? And you only want to suppress the urldate in a \fullcite? In that case try \AtEveryCitekey{\clearfield{urlyear}}. – moewe Sep 18 '15 at 7:39
