  • Also, in another thread, @adamsmith noted that if you add a podcast episode from the Stitcher website (https://www.stitcher.com/discover), Zotero will grab the metadata and will (most of the time) automatically place the date in the Extra field as d…
  • Terrific news, thank you so much, @adamsmith! I really appreciate all of your efforts on this invaluable project. Once the update makes its way to me, I'll test it out on some others like Overcast, Apple Podcasts, and Google Podcasts, too. On behalf…
  • Apologies, @adamsmith! Didn't mean to be a pest, just wanted to add my voice to the requests. Didn't realize it wasn't a small change that could be made in a brief update to Zotero. Thank you for all of the great work on the project. My sincere grat…
  • By style I simply mean the built-in Item Type preferences for Zotero. Currently there is no "Date" field in Zotero when you select "Podcast" as the Item Type. This is what people have been asking for. Consequently, when you examine your references i…
  • Hello, I agree with Michael and just added a renewed request for adding a date field for podcasts in another thread on this forum. I too would really appreciate a date field because otherwise it means I have to manually add it to every Zotero record…
  • Just to chime in on this - Since the last word on this was over 6 months ago, any progress on updating the style for podcasts? I am writing a book on podcasts and relying heavily on Zotero. So, I am ending up citing a *lot* of podcasts in this book.…
  • Oh, right, that's how it looks. I somehow thought that editing the Scannable Cite.js file would eliminate the zu: stuff and only leave the author and date. Maybe I misunderstood your previous post. My bad.
  • Dear Frank and Sebastian, thank you for this great plugin. I am testing it out on Ubuntu Linux, and it seems to work great. Yes, the extra text in the editing window for Scrivener is a little distracting, particularly with longer citations, but the…
  • The feature only works in the Zotero version that is integrated into the Firefox browser, not Zotero Standalone. Try using Zotero in Firefox and you'll see the report features.
  • Thanks for the quick response, Simon. At least I know that it wasn't a specific problem with my Zotero installation. As long as the report feature is available somewhere, I'm a happy camper. I'll look forward to the implementation of reports in S…
  • Um, I think I may have solved my own problem - Hunting around the forums, it appears that navigation, saving, and printing Zotero reports are not yet possible in Zotero Standalone, only in Zotero for Firefox. I was able to create, navigate, and sav…
  • Many thanks for the swift reply, Simon. I'm relieved... Cheers, John
  • Thanks, Adam - I hope you're right. I guess we'll find out when Ubuntu removes the sun-java-6 package and dependencies from all of its repositories and uninstalls it from users' machines! John
  • My question is exactly the same as Paolo's - Will OpenJDK work to connect Zotero to LibreOffice or OpenOffice in Linux? This is a critical issue in the wake of Oracle's announcement and it would be very helpful to have a comment from the Zotero sta…
  • Brilliant, many thanks! This is what I love about the Zotero project - fantastic tool, and very responsive support. Cheers.
  • Simon: Hey, eureka, that did it for me as well. Disabling FlashGot, and then upgrading MacWord Integration to 3.0b6 without it didn't freeze my FF. Afterward, I enabled FlashGot once again, FF restarted, and everything still worked. Thanks for th…
  • Oh, and BTW, I am running Word for Mac 2008 (Version 12.2.7 100910) on Snow Leopard (Mac OS X Version 10.5.6). Sorry for not including this info earlier. FF is version 3.6.12.
  • Dan, Simon: Here is the debug output on the FF freeze that happens after upgrading to MacWord Integration 3.0b6: http://pastebin.com/Rdu79nRB Hopefully I've followed your directions carefully enough to make this work.
  • Yeah, ditto that MM CW Project. I'm not sure that FF can even generate a proper crash report to Mozilla since it's unable to even launch after install the MacWord Integration 3.0b6. Once you launch it in safe mode, you can do "about:crashes", but …
  • Dan: Here's my best shot: http://crash-stats.mozilla.com/report/index/bp-198d2460-a9f4-4511-9fa1-20d152101202
  • Dan: Yes, FF crashes as soon as it relaunches after the upgrade to 3.0.b6. I've confirmed this twice. Each time I launch FF in safe mode, uninstall MacWord Integration, relaunch (which is fine), then downgrade to 3.0.b5, relaunch, then everything …
  • UPDATE: I downgraded to the earlier MacWord plugin by uninstalling 3.0.b6, restarting FF, and then clicking here for the earlier version: http://www.zotero.org/download/integration/Zotero-MacWord-Plugin-3.0b5.xpi Word is now interfacing fine wi…
  • I have the same problem - FF will not launch once MacWord plugin 3.0.b6 is installed (upgraded). I launched in Safe Mode and disabled it so that FF will launch, but now I am, of course, unable to utilize the Zotero toolbar in Word for Mac 2008. Th…
  • I rebooted the computer and the Ooo 3.0 setup screen ran asking me for my information and to register. After that, the Zotero plugin worked just fine with Zotero Sync 1.5 (2.2). So, I guess rebooting was all that it took.
  • Ok, got it working, thanks for the help. Just one thought: The only way I was able to truly eliminate the database from one of the computers (remote, not host) was to create a new Firefox profile, install Zotero, then go to the profiles folder and …
  • Thanks, Dan. Yes, I saved my Zotero folder from one computer and installed it on the second computer. Then, I updated both computers to 1.5 and did the sync, so the server was making a duplicate copy of all of my records into both computers. …
