For a BibTeX @webpage entry, what fields are mandatory, and what fields are optional? I've tried to Google for an absolute reference for this, but can't seem to locate one.

  • @hpesoj626 I don't think it answers my question about mandatory and optional fields, or does it?

The @webpage is defined by the package urlbst. You can also type texdoc urlbst in your terminal to open the manual.

The required fields are title and url. The optional fields are author, editor, note, year, month and lastchecked.

You can find the details in page 3 of the urlbst manual.
