# Biblatex problem with authoryear-comp style

I'm having an unexpected problem with the authoryear-comp style in Biblatex. See this MWE:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage[style=authoryear-comp,firstinits=true]{biblatex}
\usepackage[autostyle=false, style=british]{csquotes}

\begin{filecontents}{\jobname.bib}
@article{JoeDoe2012,
Author = {Joe Doe},
Title = {My article's title},
Journal = {My journal's title},
Editor = {Ben Editor},
URL = {http://webpage.com},
}
\end{filecontents}

\begin{document}
\cite{JoeDoe2012}
\printbibliography
\end{document}


When I compile, instead of getting Doe 2012 when citing, I get the article's title.

Is there something (obvious) I'm forgetting here?

• I don't get any errors. If I remove firstinits=true, I don't get the warning you mention, but still get the citation wrong. I'm using Biber. Oct 31 '12 at 0:38

• That's right! As Biblatex's documentation explains, authoryear-comp requires both the author and the year field; otherwise it default citing the title. Thanks for noticing. Oct 31 '12 at 1:33
