Making EndNote correctly cite a website?
December 6, 2005 5:37 PM   Subscribe

Is there any way to get EndNote -- yes, yes, I know, a steaming pile of rancid bits of a software app -- to correctly cite a website?

Setting reference type to "online multimedia" does not seem to work; setting the URL to the URL of the site doesn't work, either. Maybe it's cause I'm just on deadline but I can't find nothin'. Help?

What version are you using?

9 for OS X. I've tried setting it to 'electronic source' but that doesn't really work, either...

I have 8, unfortunately. Sorry. :(

Freaky. You posted this while I was busy composing my own Endnote question.

Ach, no probs; thanks for checking. Look like I'll have to live with the imperfect cite...

Whoa. Yeah, that's.... weird.

You can make custom categories (the catgories being book, chapter from edited book, etc.). Create a custom category called "web page" and set up the citation the way you like it.

It would probably be called "Edit styles" or something like that.

I agree with duck, that's about the only way to make it work.

I third the custom styles suggestion.

Thanks, all. It's not my preferred solution -- one would think that EndNote would provide an automatic cite for websites, no? -- but it works, so thanks.
