  • Hello everyone! Yes, I'm now back at my desk after having been a few thousand miles away from it, submitting my thesis! Now I've gone and started a PhD but fear not - I'm back on board with Zotdroid! I've been using it already for my own research an…
  • It's because the 'test' function uses 'PROP' webdav request (I believe, but basically not GET or POST) and box doesn't support that, whereas others do. The WebDav works fine aside from that. I've not decided on a better way to test the webdav collec…
  • Hello @siechuong We've had a couple of problems with box.com for some reason. Not quite sure why. The 'TEST' function doesn't work with box as certain commands aren't supported. Rather than test, simply go with sync. I'll be using a different test …
  • That sounds like two things: a) I probably need to write more and better help pages b) I suspect you've filled in the webdav server list incorrectly? I'm having a hard time following what you've said but I'll certainly add these two items to the li…
  • I think that's going to be one of the high priority things to add I reckon. Thanks for the feedback! :)
  • Hello @prufrockjalf Are these full items - entries and not a hanging pdf with no parent? Is this in a shared collection or your own, personal library? Where are you adding the new items to? A subcollection or right at the top? Cheers Ben
  • Hello Marco Interesting! I think the 'nope!' message appears at the top of the list right? For now, scrolling up does nothing, hence the message. As a little test, if you update your library and then sync, try changing the order (by Author or by tit…
  • Hi Richard That's no problem I think. It's simply a case of figuring out the UX which has been a criticism. I think I'll start adding these in the next release anyway, whilst thinking about the new design. Eventually, I'd like a two way sync with …
  • Hello Richard, Thank-you for your feedback! I think there are definitely things we can do here. Adding fields should be no problem, although folks have begun to complain about the UX so I need to consider carefully where these extra fields will go…
  • Hello there, Thanks for getting in touch. Looking at your URL, it appears that there is a '.' where there shouldn't be. Double check the server string in the settings. It should be: https://webdav.cloudme.com/richardm/CloudDrive/zotero/ It's becom…
  • Hello @richard.masters Thanks for getting in touch. I've not used OneDrive - I'm not familiar with it. I seem to recall a few folks have had some sucess. Under the hood, ZotDroid uses simple WebDav to do all it's moving around and so if OneDrive su…
  • Hello there. First thing to try - make sure the URL has "/zotero" at the end of it. It's caused a few problems with Box before now.
  • @smatthie thanks a lot for that! That's really good of you! I'd gotten most of the way there, including requesting permissions. Zotdroid should ask you on first use, but really, it should probably ask when you try and change directories. The real…
  • I'll need to look into this further but one of these is a symlink or similar I believe. /storage/emulated/0 I think maps to the same place as /sdcard, or at least it is on the devices I've tested. I'm attempting to hunt down a real device with an SD…
  • I should add if there are similar grants available, I would totally put a few full time months into Zotdroid, adding all the extra features folks might want. It;s just personally, I don't really know of any.
  • I've read the grant main page and on reflection, I don't think it is appropriate at all for Zotdroid. It's not aimed at solo devs nor at high income countries. I'd be more than happy to take another grant to work fulltime on Zotdroid, releasing it …
  • Hello there It all depends on the terms of the grant really. Zotdroid pays me just enough to keep interest but not work on it anywhere near full-time. I can't anyway due to other commitments. It would have to be a considerable amount to make it wort…
  • Out of curiosity, can you try saving to '/sdcard/ZotDroid' and see what happens? I believe Android might use symlinks or similar that have the correct permissions.
  • Hello there. I've noticed a few folk have trouble saving to "Real" external storage. It's something I can't test because I don't have an android device that takes an SD card. I've tried to replicate this in an emulator and it appears to work. I sus…
  • Annoyingly, there are limits to that particular android widget, so the only way to do it is add a warning dialog if the user does not add /zotero at the end. But that might be good enough.
  • Awesome! Thanks @piom . This is one of these pesky UX issues that can get people caught in knots. I don't like the fact that zotero insists on adding zotero to the end of the webdav, so I left it out of Zotdroid but then again, this is confusing an…
  • Thanks @piom - just a thought. Is this the URL you enter into the normal Zotero program? Does it work there? If so, in zotdroid try the following: https://cloud.uni-halle.de/remote.php/webdav/zotero Cheers Ben
  • Thanks @piom - Can you tell me the URL you are using for the webdav please? just want to verify it's correct. Your device is running Android 7 correct?
  • Thanks @piom - I'm out in the middle of the desert at the moment and away from my workstation. However, can you confirm the following for me - are you using a real SD card, mounted at /storage/emulated/0 Also, can you confirm your webdav settings p…
  • Hello all 1.1.9 is now out on the main android store. I've added abstracts and the ability to download all the attachments. There was a minor bug in the upgrade code (something I never knew I needed to write) which I've fixed. I've also improved t…
  • @henge thanks again. Not sure why your external card would not have permissions granted. It could be a UX thing I've not gotten right yet perhaps? I'm entering a busy time at the moment with a lot of stuff on, both other freelance projects and rese…
  • @henge glad to hear it's all working for you. I'm suprised that cloudme doesn't work. Oh well! It seems that WebDav isn't always implemented in the same way. I'll be going through some more bugs in the beta then moving the changes into the mainline…
  • Hello @henge - thanks for the feedback. Are you using the latest beta or 1.1.8? If it works for Zotero Desktop it should work for Zotdroid. The test function sends an OPTIONS request which perhaps cloudme doesn't respond to, but the download shoul…
  • Hey there everyone. The next BETA version is out: 1.1.9 https://play.google.com/apps/testing/computer.benjamin.zotdr0id This version has support for abstracts in the main listing (I believe a few of you were after that). In addition, there is a m…
  • Thanks! I think I'll add the change in the beta to the mainline, once I've tested out the addition of abstracts and full downloads. cheers Ben
