OSCOLA Footnotes without supra note ref

Dear all,

I am using OSCOLA citation style (no ibid). This style in Zotero references to a previous footnote which is the same with "author" (n "#fn").

Is it possible to exclude these references to previous footnotes, and insert the full citation in every footnote instead? I tried editing the code myself, but failed every time...

Any help would be highly appreciated!
  • Start with this version: https://raw.githubusercontent.com/citation-style-language/styles/master/oscola-no-ibid.csl

    Then, in the “citation” “layout” section at the bottom of the style, keep only the part in the “else” block (where it says “generate whole citation”). Delete everything else in the “citation” “layout” section.
  • Thank you, it worked!

    Never mind - found it.
  • Hello! I wish to do exactly the same with pdemonnink. I have installed the Oscola no ibid style, but unfortunately, I cannot find the option to generate the whole citation. Could you please elaborate on the steps? Thank you in advance
  • You copy the code you find on above link to a code/text editor.
    Then you go to the part that starts and ends with "citation" (bottom third), delete it and replace it with the following.

    <citation et-al-min="4" et-al-use-first="1">
    <layout suffix="." delimiter="; ">
    <!--general whole citation -->
    <group delimiter=" ">
    <group delimiter=", ">
    <group delimiter=" ">
    <group delimiter=", ">
    <text macro="author-note"/>
    <text macro="title"/>
    <text macro="book-container"/>
    <text macro="broadcast-container"/>
    <text macro="volume-book"/>
    <text macro="looseleaf-note"/>
    <group delimiter=" ">
    <text macro="date-parenthesis"/>
    <text macro="bill-number"/>
    <text macro="article-case-info"/>
    <text macro="publisher"/>
    <text macro="treaty-catchall"/>
    <group delimiter=", ">
    <group delimiter=" ">
    <text macro="page-first"/>
    <text macro="court"/>
    <text macro="locator-space"/>
    <text macro="locator-comma"/>
    <text macro="URL"/>
