In biblatex-chicago, I would like a command like \headlesscite except for citing multivolume works (normally done with \volcite), which could be called \headlessvolcite. Does such a cite command exist? I couldn't seem to find what it would be called.

You can make new \volcite commands by calling \volcitecmd or \multivolcitecmd before the \cite command.

e.g.,

\newrobustcmd*{\headlessvolcite}{\volcitecmd\headlesscite}
\newrobustcmd*{\headlessvolcites}{\multivolcitecmd\headlesscites}

MWE

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage[notes,ibidtracker=false]{biblatex-chicago}
\addbibresource{biblatex-examples.bib}
\newrobustcmd*{\headlessvolcite}{\volcitecmd\headlesscite}
\newrobustcmd*{\headlessvolcites}{\multivolcitecmd\headlesscites}
\begin{document}
\headlesscite[50]{knuth:ct}.

\headlessvolcite{1}[50]{knuth:ct}.

\citereset

\headlesscites[50]{knuth:ct}[100]{aristotle:rhetoric}.

\headlessvolcites{1}[50]{knuth:ct}{2}[100]{aristotle:rhetoric}.
\end{document}

    Note: I think there is a bug in the \headlesscites macro. In some situations a spurious comma appears before the title. When I get a moment, I'll see if I can track it down and submit a bug report. Commented Feb 8, 2019 at 0:47

  • @gusbrs, You got the other one ;). It's nice to share :). Commented Feb 8, 2019 at 0:52
  • That must have been because you were distracted here. ;) But I did get to know \volcitecmd, as I had never really looked at how \volcite works.
