Including editor as author

edited 19 days ago
I'm still very new to Zotero, and I'm currently trying to edit a template so that it fits the citation requirements for my school. If I retrieve a source from an encyclopedia, Wikipedia for example, I want it to be shown as " (Wikipedia (Hrsg.), 2021)" for footnotes. (Hrsg. meaning editor). I already tried working with conditionals (like enyclopedia entry), but I only got the Hrsg., nothing else.

So this is what it should look like:
(Wikipedia (Hrsg.), 2021)

And this is what it actually looks like:
(Hrsg.)

This is what I have so far, I usually work with the Visual CSL Editor but I downloaded it in order to show it.

</macro>
<citation et-al-min="4" et-al-use-first="1" disambiguate-add-year-suffix="true">
<layout delimiter="; " prefix="(" suffix=")">
<text macro="author-short" strip-periods="false"/>
<text macro="year-date" prefix=", "/>
<text macro="pages"/>
<choose>
<if type="entry-encyclopedia entry-dictionary webpage" match="any">
<text term="editor" form="short"/>
</if>
</choose>
</layout>
</citation>


In the long citation for the bibliography, I want it to be something like this:
Wikipedia (Hrsg.): (title of article)

Right now, its only:
(title of article)

Can somebody please help me? Thanks a lot!

    This is controlled by your citation style. What style are you using?

    In your library, enter this person as an editor, rather than as an author. The Hrsg label will be added automatically when the citation is made in your document.
  • (you'll want to wrap CSL code in <code> and </code> to be visible here)
  • Thank you, I was now able to solve the problem.
