I entered the below URL into Wikipedia's visual editor -> add citation -> automatic -> generate (Citoid), and it grabbed a strange URL, and missed the title and author of the article. After digging around to find you guys and looking for the right place to make my report and registering a forum account, I hope I'm in the right place.

I guess this is a feature request to add a generator for understandingwar.org?


Thank you
  • The site just doesn't provide good metadata.

    See Translators to better understand how this works. You can hover over the save button in the Zotero Connector to see the translator being used. (Not sure if there's a way to see that in Citoid.) In this case it's Embedded Metadata, which means it's just using the metadata available from the site, which is quite lacking:

    <meta property="og:title" content="Institute for the Study of War" />
    <meta property="og:type" content="website" />
    <meta property="og:url" content="http://dev-isw.bivings.com/"; />
    <meta property="og:image" content="" />
    <meta property="og:site_name" content="Institute for the Study of War" />
    <meta property="fb:admins" content="100003039833570" />
