As an example, the first result here contains the JSON { "results": [ { "pagination": "266-278", "links": [ "http://dx.doi.org/10.1017/jsl.2013.12" ], "title": "On $\\omega_1$-strongly compact cardinals", "year": "2014", "source": "J. Symb. Log. 79, No. 1, 266-278 (2014).", "score": 3.316698, ...

It seems to have some trouble with some non-ASCII characters (but not all). For example trying to cite this entry yields: Pascal Lambrechts and Ismar Voli?, Formality of the little $N$-disks operad, Mem. Amer. Math. Soc. 230 (2014), no. 1079, viii+116. Notice how the second author's name is incorrect: it should be "Volić". The character is formatted as {\...

The formatting of the citation output is a bit odd. Joan Bagaria and Menachem Magidor, MR 3226024 On $\omega_1$-strongly compact cardinals, J. Symb. Log. 79 (2014), no. 1, 266--278. The MR reference should be at the end, or at least not between the authors and the title. And while we're at it, we can also add a direct link to this by using http://www.ams....

I just stumbled over this, and have no idea what it does, and how to use it. So far, all I managed to achieve was that it shows me an animation (three "pulsating" dots), and nothing happend. Also, it is not mentioned under "Help" nor under "Advanced help" either. It would be really great if there could be at least some minimal documentation. UPDATE: seems ...

function getCitationHtml(json) { var cite = \$('<cite>').attr('authors', json.authors) .append('_' + json.authors + '_, ') .append('[**' + json.title + '**](' + encodeURI(json.links.length > 0 ? json.links[0] : '') + '), ') .append(json.source + ' [Zbl' + json.zbl_id + '](https://zbmath.org/?q=an:' + json....

Here is a mild (known) issue that can be easily fixed. In some places \ssf is used instead of \mathsf. This should be easily fixable.

It seems the citation helper only covers journal papers, but ignores books, even if MathSciNet has them. Intentional?

Oded installed a new version of Scott Morrison's citation helper that uses an API to Zentralblatt, which solved the problem. This change was already in the works, but I kept dropping the ball. Oded and Scott deserve the credit. For the curious, I have a SEDE query that shows the 218 extant posts which have included citations. You might also be interested to ...

We will also need to modify the fetchCallback function from http://cdn.sstatic.net/js/third-party/citation-helper.js?v=2. This is the current content of that function, which we can "edit in place" to update. // Callback to run when search completes. function fetchCallback(response) { // Here's an example of what the 'response' argument might contain. //...

This appears to be the same "bug" that also affects the Stack Snippet editor on Stack Overflow. Basically, all "external editing tools" are disabled on touch devices, regardless of whether they actually work on such devices or not. That includes the snippet editor on SO, the citation helper here, and basically all other custom editor buttons on any SE ...

The button for the citation helper seems to have changed from the pair of links on a black background to a letter "B" just to the right of the "insert image" button. Presumably not intentional?

Has the citation helper been disabled? When posting an answer just now, I did not see the icon.
