Citing Zotero Forums

edited 24 days ago
Greetings,

I was trying to use the Zotero connector to pull into Zotero, the metadata necessary to cite a forum thread/post (from the Zotero forums). Zotero pulls these in as a generic web page. I'm wondering if there is a way to trigger Zotero to use the itemType "forum post"? I looked at the page in the documentation https://www.zotero.org/support/dev/exposing_metadata, but there didn't seem to be anything overt there.
  • No, I don't think there's an easy way to have "forum post" picked up by metadata. Maybe it's in schema.org, then we might get it to work once that's properly picked up, but I'm not sure it's in there (it's not like they're getting cited a ton and the citations are fairly similar to any other web source)
  • _and_ if Zotero picked up schema.org metadata, yes.
