Support » Plugin: Mendeley Plugin » csl do not show URL

  • Hello! First I’d like to thank you for the awesome plugin that is helping me a lot in listing in a easy way all of my groups papers!

    I’m from Brazil and here we have a specific citation style (we call it ABNT) and i’m usin a specific .csl that brings in the end of the citation

    “Availiable at: [URL].” (in the csl’s context the “Availiable at: ” is a text given, [URL] is the variable “URL” from the paper itself given by Mendeley and the ending “.” is another text given.

    The csl is working in everithing else but in inserting the specific part of the URL. It shows in the page “Availiable at: .”, missing the URL itself. If I use the defaut citation style (without any csl), all the URL appears in the form of a hyperlink named “URL” (so they in fact exists).

    Is there any way I could learn how the default citation style writes the URL so I could copy to my csl? (I have a beginer knowledge in coding, I’m not the creator of my site).

    The page I need help with: [log in to see the link]

    The URL is transferred to the CSL generation code via the variable “URL” – How do you access the url in the CSL?

    I’m attaching some print so you can see for yourself. I don’t know how to explain very well.

    When I ask my chrome to inspect the item, I see this:

    At this point I’m using as the command:

    [mendeley type=”folders” id=”xxx” csl=”” style=link filelink]

    Maybe the problem is there, how the csl writes down the URL in the HTML…

    I had a look at your CSL file – and there the problem is:

    <if variable=”URL”>
    <text value=”Disponível em: <“/>
    <text variable=”URL”/>
    <text value=”>.”/>

    The URL is put in “<” and “>”. Could you try:

    <if variable=”URL”>
    <text value=”Disponível em:
    <text variable=”URL”/>
    <text value=”‘>”/>
    <text variable=”URL”/>
    <text value=”.”/>
