I'm using the package biblatex with [backend=bibtex] and the command \cite{} which works perfectly with my bib file linked to Mendeley. Accidentally I copy-pasted a link in the ambient \cite{} and now I get this error 'undefined on input' Citation 591\IeC {\textendash}616. + the link I accidentally copy pasted '. Now, even deleting it from the code I get this reference as a full link on my main text when compiling.

Any help would be more than appreciated.

    Delete the .aux, .bbl and .bcf file and compile again. Citation requests can persevere in the temporary files even if they are removed from the .tex file. Usually the should be gone after a full cycle of LaTeX, Biber/BibTeX, LaTeX, LaTeX, but if that does not help, deleting the temporary files should help. – moewe Jul 22 '18 at 16:25

    I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because it was solved be deleting the temporary files and compiling from scratch. – moewe Jul 23 '18 at 21:14
