Web page category not showing in (+) Add button > more in Spanish translation

Dear Zotero community,

I've recently noticed that the "web page" category is not showing up in (+) Add > More menu, but it does when you create an entry in any other category and you change it in the sidebar menu setting.

This occurs at least in the Spanish translation.

I searched the forum and did not find any reference to this issue, so I decided to post it here.

Best regards.

  • That's by design — you shouldn't be trying to create webpage items manually. See the Note here: https://www.zotero.org/support/adding_items_to_zotero#manually_adding_items
  • Okay, thanks.
  • @dstillman teaching Zotero earlier this week, I wanted to demonstrate this and was very astonished to find ‘Website’ listed under the (+) menu. That was on Zotero 5.0.91 on MacOS. It’s the same on the current beta (5.0.92-beta.3+...) Double-checking on my Windows desktop (5.0.91 as well), shows it’s missing, as expected. Do you have an explanation?

  • (currently seeing Web Page on Windows in 5.0.91)
  • Sorry. Of course it was 'Web Page' in English and 'Webseite' in German.
  • @gduffner: This was a recent-ish bug that only happened with newly created databases. Fixed now in 5.0.92. Thanks for reporting, and sorry for the confusion.
  • While I don't like the didactic approach of educating a user by hiding functionality I really appreciate this fix for the sake of consistency. Thanks for the quick action!
