Code to change direct quotations from "p. 123" format to colons

My questions is kind of mentioned in the title.

Currently, when I use direct quotation with my current style, it appears as, for example (Author, 2012, p. 123). Is there anyway I can change the csl syntax so I would get colons instead, for example, (Author, 2012: 123)?

Many thanks in advance

  • For quick fixes like this, if you're not familiar with CSL styles, I find the Visual CSL Editor very handy: - you just upload the style, use the examples to identify where the code is, fix it and save the updated style (and then load the updated style back to Zotero).
