I use the template from IEEE, to be precise, I use IEEEtran.cls 2015/08/26 version V1.8b It should the same as you can download here: https://www.ieee.org/conferences/publishing/templates.html Direct link: https://www.ieee.org/content/dam/ieee-org/ieee/web/org/pubs/conference-latex-template_10-17-19.zip

I want to add an reference to a site, but I can't find out how to do this. This is the format I use now:

@online{NameRef,
author = {Name},
title = {Title},
year = 2019,
url = {https://www.website.com},
}

However, when I use it like this, it will only show:

[2] Name. Title, 2019. How can I fix it that it will show the url too?

  • Welcome to TeX.SE. Please tell us which bibliography style you employ at present. And, does your document load the url package?

  • I'm fairly new to latex, so I don't know for sure this is the answer you are looking for. I load my bibliography with \bibliographystyle{unsrt} \bibliography{bibfile} The rest of the file is kept original like in the zip file linked above

  • With the IEEEtran class it makes sense to use the accompanying bib style \bibliographystyle{IEEEtran} instead of the standard unsrt. IEEEtran.bst supports the url field.

  • ( @moewe I want to choose your solution as answer but I can't do that (yet)? I tried to do what they say here: stackoverflow.com/help/someone-answers But I don't see the answer option )

With the IEEEtran class it makes sense to use the accompanying bibliography style

\bibliographystyle{IEEEtran}

instead of the standard unsrt. IEEEtran.bst supports the url field out of the box, so the example in the question should work there. (Though IEEEtran only knows @misc not @online.)
