  • (2021-03-18) Imad Eddine Ibrahim BEKKOUCH: Amazing work, thanks a lot, I really needed it. It would be nice to provide a feature that brings both sides to the same text. so that I dont have to scroll from the other side again.
  • (2020-12-27) Scott H. Hawley: Does not grab author or date published, sets class to misc regardless. Just sets title and url. Meh.
  • (2020-08-25) Olivier Hokke: Wanted to like it, but still need to do lots of information filling myself, like the Author(s) and publishing date. Nowadays most news and blog sites should have correct tags ready for this plugin to read, but it doesn't seem to do that. Take this URL: https://www.pcgamer.com/why-are-game-install-sizes-getting-so-big/ The `type="application/ld+json"` script contains ALL information, but is not used?

  • (2013-10-10) Michael Nagel: does what it promises. please add a way to contact the developer/give feedback. also, please include a `urldate = "10.10.2013"` field to the generated citation.

  • (2018-03-24, v:1.3.2) Fredrik Kartevoll: Accessed on - local language
    Is there an option to change "accessed on" to a custom text? (equivalent to "accessed on" in your local language).
  • (2018-02-13, v:1.3.2) yxliang1: Support for extracting information from metadata
    In many articles, there are many useful metadata. E.g. Author name, publication date, etc... Would be great if this extension can support extracting information from the metadata.
  • (2017-06-24, v:1.3.2) Chriztoffer Hansen: Public Git Repo
    Fat chance one can help by contributing code to this chrome plugin by creating pull request(s) to a public git repository ?
  • (2016-05-16, v:1.2.9) Thomas Juberg: Support for @online and "stripping"
    Hi. Love the plugin as it saves me a fair bit of time. I have two feature requests. The first is an option to generate @online entries instead of @misc. ie @online{WinNT, author = {MultiMedia LLC}, title = {{MS Windows NT} Kernel Description}, year = 1999, url = {http://web.archive.org/web/20080207010024/http://www.808multimedia.com/winnt/kernel.htm}, urldate = {2010-09-30} } The second is an option to strip empty strings from the result. i.e if author is empty, exclude it from the output altogether to prevent Sharelatex etc. from throwing warnings about empty entries.
  • (2016-02-05, v:1.2.8) Jan Wirth: Hashtags not escaped
    Links with hashtag are are not escaped correctly. BTW is there a github repository open for pull requests?
  • (2014-10-22, v:1.2.4) Nicholas Latham: Spaces in Citation Label
    The extension outputs a citation label which contains a space which (i think) isn't allow.
  • (2014-10-22, v:1.2.4) Nicholas Latham: Escaping underscores
    Hi, Great extension! Just a problem when the title or url has a underscore, it needs to escape the underscore otherwise you get a compile error. Again thanks for a great extension.
  • (2014-05-23, v:1.2.3) Laurence Cartwright: Date format
    No options for url date format, would to display in dd/mm/yyyy or yyyy/mm/dd for international use.
