zbib.org: More informative error message for invalid DOIs

A colleague was just trying to enter this text into zbib.org:
Edwards, J. R., & Bagozzi, R. P. (2000). On the nature and direction of relationships between constructs and measures. Psychological Methods, 5(2). https://doi.org/10.1037/1082-989X.5.2

They got the error message "An error occurred while citing this source." The error is because the DOI is wrong. It should be: 10.1037/1082-989X.5.2.155

Could a more informative error message be given in this case indicating the problem is the incorrect DOI?
  • After I correct the DOI, it still returns an error. The error resolves if I give just the DOI. I recall zbib used to work if I pasted a whole reference like this.
  • The full string works for me with the correct DOI. AWS was having some trouble today that caused some intermittent failures on ZoteroBib.

    Got it. Could the error message for invalid DOIs be updated?
