# Edit footnote citation in beamer [duplicate]

Based on Footnote Citation in Beamer I was able to produce a citation that is Authors, Journal Year. By I was hoping to fix two things in the example below to match the \footcite case:

1) I would like the color to be black

2) I would like the year to be in parenthesis

\documentclass[10pt,english,compress]{beamer}

%Beamer Settings
\usetheme{Warsaw}
\setbeamercovered{dynamic}

%BIB File
\usepackage{filecontents}
\begin{filecontents}{MWE.bib}
@article{ref1,
author = "Appleton, W. and Anderson, Z. and Almeirim, P.",
title = "This is the title of this article, which as you can see, is very long and takes up too much space in the footnote.",
journal = "Journal of Interesting Things",
year = 2013}
@book{ref2,
author = "Burger, J.",
title = "The title of the Book is this",
publisher = "Public Publishing Publishers",
year = 2014
}
\end{filecontents}

\newrobustcmd*{\footlessfullcite}{\AtNextCite{\renewbibmacro{title}{}\renewbibmacro{in:}{}}\footfullcite}

\begin{document}

\begin{frame}{Example in Beamer}
\begin{itemize}
\item This is an example of text.\pause{}
\item Here is the second text that contains a reference\footlessfullcite{ref1} in the middle of the sentence.\pause{}
\item Here is another reference at the end of the sentence\footcite{ref2}.
\end{itemize}
\end{frame}

\end{document}

• For the colours, try \setbeamercolor{bibliography entry author}{fg=black} \setbeamercolor{bibliography entry title}{fg=black} \setbeamercolor{bibliography entry note}{fg=black} Apr 18, 2016 at 16:55

Based on the comment by @samcarter and the answer in Trying to understand the renewbibmacro and DeclareFieldFormat construct I got the effect I desired by adding the following lines after \newrobustcmd:
\setbeamercolor{bibliography entry author}{fg=black}
