(author?)

Whoever uses the natbib package, while choosing the numerical citation mode, and gets the freakingly annoying print "(author?)" when attempting to use \citet or \citeauthor for showing author-year information in LaTeX, make sure you:
  • compile several times
  • do not use the standard, numerical only, .bst files, such as plain.bst. Use plainnat.bst instead, re-compile 2-3 times and your text will finally make sense.
  • RTFM before go nuts, see e.g. here (I have a rather dirty set-up at the moment, so I thought something alien might be causing the problem).
After all this, never ever use Safari to write about the tip in blogger.
