How to get rid of the full stop in the reference
Zotero, Style Chicago Manual Full Note or SBL Full note automatically puts a period at the end of each reference. However, often, in a footnote, I do not want a period but go on with my sentence. For example, I get: Alan Appelbaum, The Rabbis' King Parables, 24., has said.... Obviously I do not want a period after 24. How can I change the style so that I avoid this double punctuation?
If you do want to edit the style, you'd remove suffix="." from
<layout suffix="." delimiter="; ">.
See here for general instructions: https://www.zotero.org/support/dev/citation_styles/style_editing_step-by-step
If you want to add specific page numbers to a citation see https://www.zotero.org/support/word_processor_plugin_usage#customizing_cites and that will handle comma and period correctly.
For your case, if you put something like ", says a lot more stuff to explain the citation." into the suffix field, you'll get
Teugels, Title, says a lot more stuff to explain the citation.
i.e. the period at the end of the sentence where it belongs, not after the reference.
You can also add a parenthetical citation to the beginning or middle of a sentence if you combine this solution with adamsmith's first solution from 10/3/16 above.
E.g. if there is layout suffix="." delimiter="; " between < and > , the code does not show.
