# Beamer: How to add "Year" information to footcite?

I have the following citation in Bib.bib

@article{abramov_gordon_feldman_chavarga,
title={Sex \& vision I: Spatio-temporal resolution},
volume={3},
DOI={10.1186/2042-6410-3-20},
number={1},
journal={Biology of Sex Differences},
author={Abramov, Israel and Gordon, James and Feldman, Olga and Chavarga, Alla},
year={2012},
pages={20}
}


And my slide is as follows:

However, the footcite is not displaying the year of the paper, which is 2012

I have consulted several other posts, but they are not about footcite but about creating custom citation, and the methods are usually complicated.

Is there a simple modification to the code below that allows me to generate the year information in the footnote using footcite?

\documentclass{beamer}
\usepackage[style=authortitle,backend=bibtex]{biblatex}
\usepackage{bibentry}
\usepackage[english]{babel}
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
\usepackage{transparent}
%Information to be included in the title page:
\title{Sample title}
\author{Anonymous}
\institute{ShareLaTeX}
\date{2017}

• \footnote{\Citeauthor{}, \citetitle{}, \citeyar{}}? Or you need to use a style which includes the citation format you want. You're using authortitle. Obviously, that cites by author and title. Remember, it is only a citation - a direction to an entry in a bibliography with the relevant details. Do people need author, title and year to distinguish this entry uniquely?

• @cfr \footnote{\Citeauthor{abramov_gordon_feldman_chavarga}, \citetitle{abramov_gordon_feldman_chavarga}, \citeyear{abramov_gordon_feldman_chavarga}} doesn't seem to work :( and it says style = authortitleyear not found. Sep 4 '17 at 3:21

You can patch the cite macro to add the date:

\usepackage{xpatch}
\xpatchbibmacro{cite}
{\usebibmacro{cite:title}}
{\usebibmacro{cite:title}%
\usebibmacro{date}}
{}
{}
