Nice plugin which is exceedingly useful (I’m using the latest version)
However, it does seem a bit unreliable. I get it set up and pull down a list of references. I come back the next day and nothing! In the meantime nothing has changed as far as I know.
As to fixing this, nothing seems to to work consistently. Clearing every cache in sight, deleting/renewing/refreshing tokens etc. All these things work to revive the connection to the database but different actions at different times. I am using a basic shortcode with no CSL, just the folder id and a sort order.
I wonder if there is any advice you have that might help me improve the reliability of the connection with Mendeley?
I got so frustrated with this that I tried Zotero. There is a similar WP plugin for that and it works like a dream. However, I have come back to Mendeley because Zotero is not so good with its desktop application. But I remain frustrated by the flakey connection (though I realise that this could be Mendeley rather than this plugin).
Thanks in advance for any advice.
