I'm new here, so I don't know whether I should be creating a new question for this, since this is a follow-up to this question.

I'm trying to get both the name and the year in biblatex's citations to work as hyperlinks. The answer given by Audrey in the original post seems to work great, except for one thing: If multiple entry keys are used within a single \cite command, the delimiter between citations does not show up.

I tried adding a \multicitedelim after the year label, and it works, except that I end up with a semicolon after the final citation too. Thoughts?

  • +1 Thanks for catching this. There is indeed a problem with \textcite{key1,key2} - I forgot to reset a parenthesis flag. I'll update my original answer instead of providing a new one for now. I can't produce any problems with the remaining citation commands. If the fix doesn't solve your problem, could you provide some further details? Some code and biblatex version would be great. – Audrey Sep 4 '11 at 6:14
  • Awesome. Thanks. I will give it a try and get back to you if it doesn't work. – apc Sep 5 '11 at 17:58
  • It works as advertised. Thanks! I am assuming that redefining \parencite along the lines of your definition of \textcite should work as well. – apc Sep 5 '11 at 18:06
  • Actually, I don't know how to do that. But by simply adding the definitions of \parencite from authoryear.cbx it now works for \parencite too. – apc Sep 5 '11 at 18:24
  • Have a look at the sample document. The code redefines a macro used by all citation commands (under the authoryear style) except \textcite. So it should affect the output of \parencite without direct edits to this command. To take this post off the unanswered list, I can provide an answer with details on the bug fix. But feel free to request another feature. Maybe the inclusion of postnote in hyperlinks generated by \textcite? – Audrey Sep 5 '11 at 19:06

(Just repeating my comment in an answer to take this question off the unanswered list.)

The question uncovers a bug. For the parenthesis printed in the hyperlink, I didn't reset a flag biblatex uses to track parentheses. In particular


needs to followed up with


I've edited the answer to incorporate this fix.
