Supress title where no author

After a bit of a search I've not come up with

I have a few references where there is no author and I'd like to suppress the title as I already use the title in text.

Eg. "the Vienna Convention on the Law of Treaties (1969)".

In this instance using 'suppress author' doesn't appear to work.

I'm using the Uni South Australia 2013 style though I've also tested a bunch of others: UniSA 2017, Chicago author-date, Elsevier Harvard, etc.

The only thing I've been able to find on this is the below, which suggests it may once have been a bug. Is this the case, or do I need to format these citations manually?

  • This should just work. “Vienna Convention” is in the title field, correct? Can you export this item to Zotero RDF, paste to hastebin.com, and link here?

    Yep, Vienna Convention is in the title.

    It's a pretty simple record: title, publisher, date, url.

    Zotero RDF for it below:

    Here's another example, this one has a few more fields, including contributor, but the result is the same. Title used in in-text reference and not suppressed when suppress author is selected.

    Zerobin links expires and Hastebin seems to be up again so I've updated the links in my previous post.

    Anyone have and more ideas on this?
  • One more try, anyone have any input into this? @bwiernik
  • Sorry I’ve been swamped with work the last few weeks. I’ll try to look at this soon.
