# Edit the link span of a \cite [duplicate]

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

In order to control the cite link color, I use

``````\definecolor{mycolor}{HTML}{065F8F}
citecolor=mycolor,
urlcolor=mycolor}
``````

For the biblatex package, I configure style

``````\usepackage[backend=biber,
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?

• 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
• `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
