I am using biblatex with backend=biber and hyperref package.

In order to control the cite link color, I use


For the biblatex package, I configure style

    style = authoryear,
    citestyle = authoryear-ibidem,
    hyperref = true,

When I now use the \cite command, it renders something like

Albrecht and Lee, 2012

where you must imagine the 2012 in blue and the rest in black. How can I edit the \cite command so that the complete reference (including the author name) is a link and therefore blue?

    Even though your question is clear and, as far as I can see, well defined, it would be easier for the folks to play with your problem, and thus answer it, if you supplied a minimal working example with bibliography (MWEB), which illustrates the issue. – gusbrs Aug 8 '17 at 20:52
  • A solution will definitely depend on the style you use. Do you use style=authoryear or something else? Do you apply any modifications to that style? – moewe Aug 8 '17 at 21:00

  • OK I will try to provide an MWE. Inserted Moewes suggestion. – Ulu83 Aug 8 '17 at 21:05
  • authoryear-ibidem is not a style I know, the standard style is called authoryear-ibid, do you mean that? Note that in that case style = authoryear, citestyle = authoryear-ibid, is equivalent to style = authoryear-ibid,. – moewe Aug 8 '17 at 21:11
