In the style guide on the Vula tab, it shows an example of an online reference:

but, when using the supplied "dcu(etal).bst" bibliography file, the output is:

Basically, how to I get rid of the "URL" tag, and add in the date accessed? Or can I assume that because I'm using the prescribed style file it's fine?

Turns out I can replicate the correct output by adding: 

"howpublished = {{\url{http://www.edge.org/3rd_culture/taleb08/taleb08_index.html} [27 February 2009]}},"

to the biblatex source. 

Is there a simpler way?

Hi Pandy

As far as I know the Natbib package does not have a default format for referencing online articles. The solution above is the one I also use; I do not know of any other way.

We are looking into adding an option to the Natbib package to make it simpler to add online references.

Hi Njabulo

Okay perfect, thanks! Just wanted to make sure there wasn't something I was missing.

Hi Pandy

As far as I know the Natbib package does not have a default format for referencing online articles. The hack that seems to work most of the time is the solution you used.
