Evgeny Fadeev 21:35, 10 April 2008 (EDT) Just installed <biblio> on Questions: (1) what happens if isbn limit is reached? (2) will hubmed always work givend pmid is correct? - I'm thinking of removing pubmed link, b.c. two seem redundant. Thanks!!!

Ilya 15:42, 22 August 2007 (EDT): Hi Martin, your Biblio extension has stopped working. See and OpenWetWare is running the latest version of it (0.8.1). Also, I've tested the NCBI web service API with their demo scripts and it seems to be working fine. Any idea what could be wrong and how to fix it? Thanks.

Julius B. Lucks 10:40, 10 July 2007 (EDT): Hi Martin. I am loving your biblio extension, and I am starting to use it a lot on OWW. How easy would it be to extend its functionality to include articles outside of PubMed. In particular, I am referring to content on, which has been used by physicists as a pre-print server for quite some time now. (In fact, Nature just annonced an effort to make an arXiv-like site soon). The arXiv also has a quantitative biology section which is starting to see a lot of bio-related articles relevant to oww interests.

I see that you are using the PubMed SOAP API to get your info. The arXiv currently doesn't have such an API - would it still be possible to make the biblio extension work? I appreciate your time! - Julius

Austin 14:04, 19 June 2006 (EDT): Biblio 0.7.4 on OWW with MediaWiki 1.6.7 appears to have problems with the cite tag. See the Sandbox for an example.

I'll see what I can do. Thanks. --Martin 14:37, 19 June 2006 (EDT)
I discovered that the math formulas don't work on the old pages (the ones which were there before the upgrade like Sandbox), both on my local wiki and here. For example, the current talk page is new, and it works: <math>\sqrt{\pi}</math> gives \sqrt{\pi}. --Martin 15:50, 19 June 2006 (EDT)
It seems to work similarly with the "cite" tags: <cite>blabla</cite> gives [1]. --Martin 15:50, 19 June 2006 (EDT)
On my personal quick upgrade of Mediawiki I did not run any particular upgrade script (and I am pretty sure that I should), and I don't know what you did here. I did not perform any upgrade of MediaWiki other than that before, so I can't really help you now - sorry... --Martin 15:50, 19 June 2006 (EDT)


Biblio & Show / Hide


Hi, I would like to know if it is possible to do the following. I think it's a really useful way of displaying a bibliography:

<showhide>2002-2007 Publications__HIDER__ 

<showhide>2002-2007 Publications__HIDER__ <hide>

  1. - Kelemen, G.H.== Streptomyces @ UEA

    Home        Research        Research Groups        Publications        Resources        Meetings        Links        Contact

    {|cellspacing="5" cellpadding="10" style="background:#000; width: 800px;" |-valign="top" |style="background:#ffffff; width:760px"| {|  !style="width:500px" align="left"|Kelemen, G.H. |}
     2000 - Present
    <biblio> #Streptomyces:PublicationsKelemenList</biblio>
    Edit Kelemen Publication List |}


</hide> </showhide>

I can get the biblio tags to work fine & display the list on Streptomyces:PublicationsKelemen page, just not in a useful show/hide display. I thought this would be good to show publications in 5 year groups that a reader could show/hide rather than one great long list. Could this be an issue with biblio or the show / hide tags? I'd be grateful for any helpful comments.

Thanks, Jim @ Streptomyces 17:37, 15 March 2007 (EDT)

I see the problem. It seems that the showhide extension doesn't process syntax extensions. It may be tricky to do so, I don't know, I will forward this to whomever wrote this showhide thingy. --Martin 18:20, 15 March 2007 (EDT)


Thanks for taking a look Martin :-) Jim @ Streptomyces 06:32, 16 March 2007 (EDT)

Additional Cite Tags?

Hi Martin,

Thanks for your help before, I now have Biblio nicely nested in between some Toggle tags.
I now have another question. Would it be possible to create an additional pair of cite tags, that when used, would display the original text of the key. Currently to create a reference I type <biblio> # Dalton-MolMicro-2007 pmid=17462019 </biblio> . To cite this reference I nest the key in cite tags: <cite> Dalton-MolMicro-2007 </cite> and this displays the inline citation as [1]. I would now like to use different tags e.g. <citeref> </citeref> to display the inline citation as [Dalton-MolMicro-2007].
I know the numbering system has its advantages in that the text is easier to read. However, the naming system would be useful for large blocks of text, or text with lots of citations; so the reader doesn't have to keep clicking on the [1] link and scroll back up the page. I hope this makes sense and is something that will be considered.
I find this a brilliant extension and very useful. Thanks for reading, Jim @ Streptomyces 09:17, 3 May 2007 (EDT)

I guess that could be done easily, by editing the PHP file. However I don't have much time now to do it myself. --Martin 06:24, 7 May 2007 (EDT)
