  • P.S.: also want to mention that I am well aware that you are a small team and you are already doing an AMAZING job! I can never thank you enough for Zotero 6. The integration of the .pdf reader is just SOOO perfect! :-)
  • @damnation Thanks a lot! I have just had a look at "citation" just to see what this is looks like. Am really trying to familiarise myself with coding .csl, with almost ZERO experience of coding beforehand, and I have no idea where I can find resourc…
  • Thank you. So, as far as the article is concerned, I did what I mentioned above, that is start from the "basic" Chicago 17th full note that was there, and just had a few modifications to make. Nonetheless, I also tried your suggestion, just out of…
  • It's OK. I will not waste your time with .csl changes. I think I will just start from Chicago and check out all the notes that have been reduced to author-page number, then replace that note with brackets in the text. This should not take too long…
  • The line beginning with < style does show in the editor. Is it not supposed to? I have: xmlns="http://purl.org/net/xbiblio/csl" class="note" version="1.0" demote-non-dropping-particle="display-and-sort" page-range-format="chicago" Should I repl…
  • Actually, I think you meant after the author/contributors, right? category citation-format="note"/ Here I replace "note" with "intext" and that's all?
  • Thank you both for your answers. @bwiernik I don't understand what you mean by "first line". It reads: Which part is it I must change to "intext"? ... or did you mean the first line AFTER the title? http://www.zotero.org/styles/chicago-fullnot…
  • @dstillman Thank you. I had the same issue. Solved in 3 seconds. Zotero was already an amazing tool, but these recent additions rock it all, particularly the excellent .pdf reader! Congratulations to the whole team! What an amazing job, really! I …
  • Thank you very much for your quick answer. I have just double checked and you are right. Here it says "In the MLA Handbook and examples of student writing on The MLA Style Center, hyphens are used in page ranges since hyphens may be easier for stud…
  • @adamsmith You wrote "Note that hyphens in page ranges are automatically replaced by en-dashes by Zotero, so no need to change those." I am writing in MLA and apparently I NEED Zotero to write a hyphen for page ranges. How can I get Zotero NOT to…
  • @bwiernik From what I understand, this is still an unresolved issue... and I need it too. You mentioned that "periodical" would probably be in Zotero 5.1 Do you have any idea WHEN that new version of Zotero is due to be released? Any plans in the…
  • @damnation Thank you! It works absolutely fine! Have a beautiful day :-)
  • @bwiernik Good morning! I am continuing this thread from 3 years ago. I would like to know where this stands now. Is it possible for me to indicate "medium: ePub book" with MLA now? As I said in my last message, I have been trying to use the Editi…
  • @hughp3 If I understand your initial remark, yes, you are right, I was not trying to cite anything for an article, I was just using the Zotero tool to generate bibliography from an item in order to TEST it. However, when I do that, I do chose MLA, …
  • @bwiernik 1) The title I entered in Zotero is this: “The town I loved so well” The language I put is just “en” “So” is an adverb, so it should be capitalised in English, but Zotero leaves it in lower case. 2) Actually, capitalisation in French is…
  • Hello, I have just spent 2 hours trying to clean up my bibliographical references. Trying to follow the rules, I have used automation to put all my titles in sentence case, have checked the language of all my references (mostly en or fr). Running …
  • Understood. Thank you. Tomorrow, I will look into the CSL and TRY to see which line I must change exactly in order for my songs to be cited between quotation marks...
  • @adamsmith OK. You wrote earlier that "audio-recording isn't a CSL type, so that won't do anything. Zotero's audioRecording is CSL's song." so... if I understand well, the CSL automatically recognise ANY audio recording as a song, right? In that …
  • @dstillman Thank you. So, if I understand well, "Type: song" is kind of subtype of "audio Recording" and should only be used for that type of items, right? I'm not sure what you mean by "I have a fix ready". Does it mean that you are planning to f…
  • OK, so my question was about songs, i.e. items that I have in Zotero as "audio recordings". When I cite them in MLA for my thesis, Zotero yields the song name between quotation marks, and the container in italics. Perfect ! BUT here, I have to cite…
  • @bwiernik It would be interesting to do why it does that. On the other hand, from what I can judge, it seems to me that even if I managed to add "Type: song", it wouldn't solve my problem. I have just tried with another item I have, which is a "Bo…
  • I've just tried "Type: broadcast". It doesn't seem to work either. Zotero deletes it.
  • So, I'm testing a few things. It seems that "Type: song" simply does not exist in Zotero... maybe because, as you said, "Zotero's audioRecording is CSL's song". I've tried it in an extra field for another audio recording that does not have a contai…
  • I type "return" and then type "Type: song". So it reads Container title: Blood on the Tracks Type: song By "refresh", I mean either when I try to sync with Zotero.org (green arrow) OR when I refresh in the Zotero style editor
  • I will be much clearer if I use the paste bin, I guess: https://pastebin.com/i9i33BUy This is the line I'm talking about.
  • I have tried that, but Zotero doesn't accept it. The second line just disappears as soon it is refreshed. I tried adding "audio-recording" to that "if" line, but it doesn't seem to be anything. I thought this would cause Zotero to treat it in the s…
  • OK. I'm not going to mess with the initial Chicago style, but I'm trying to see if I can change my style, at least. In the macro named "substitute-title", I read: if type="article-magazine article-newspaper review review-book" match="any">…
  • @bwiernik Hello, my question is not about scores but about songs (= audio recordings). However, I'm continuing the thread of THIS conversation, because that's where you were telling me that "Chicago doesn’t follow a simple container/no-container r…
  • Sorry, the csl does not appear. I was referring to line 187. I added musical-score https://pastebin.pl/view/65d83dd4
  • Does that mean that, in this case, I should actually avoid using "Type: musical_score" in the EXTRA section so that it defaults to my item type, i.e. "book"? Or better still The csl in my own derived style named "La main de Thot" reads: …
