I'm trying to fix an error I get when trying to use biblatex-mla 0.9.5 with Biblatex 1.7

Unfortunately, I get

! Undefined control sequence.
<argument> \biburldatelong

Which I believe was a supported command in earlier Biblatex versions. Failing this, is there any other way I can get MLA-style citations using Biblatex and Biber?

  • Are you using long dates? If not, what happens if you use \providecommand\biburldatelong{} after loading biblatex? (Sorry, I'd need to download biblatex-mla to test a more robust solution.)

  • @jon nope, and that seems to have fixed it. Can you add your comment as an answer?

  • Sure. I added a brief answer. But someone may still come along with a real one.

Well, one possible workaround would be to add


after biblatex is loaded. But this is not a robust solution, especially (I imagine) if one is using long form dates.
