# hyperlinking author names in biblatex when using \citeauthor

Using biblatex, the \citeauthor no longer is hyperlinked by default (as done in natbib). I am currently desperately looking for a way to make it a hyperlink ... any suggestion welcome

Just apply the bibhyperref format in the citation command:

\DeclareCiteCommand{\citeauthor}
{\boolfalse{citetracker}%
\boolfalse{pagetracker}%
\usebibmacro{prenote}}
{\ifciteindex
{\indexnames{labelname}}
{}%
\printtext[bibhyperref]{\printnames{labelname}}}
{\multicitedelim}
{\usebibmacro{postnote}}


Definitions for bibhyperref and \citeauthor can be found in biblatex.def.

• Why does this not work at \citet{xy} (I have natbib=true as option). I saw tex.stackexchange.com/a/27107/9075 as possible solution, but seems to be very complicated. – koppor Jan 7 '17 at 7:58
