Citation generator


I’m looking for a script that generates a full citation (Chicago,
Harvard etc.) for the webpage the script is on. The script could be PHP
(or JavaScript), it could be a WordPress plugin etc. - very flexible at
the moment. Does anyone know of one?

Note: I know there are WordPress plugins that generate citations of [cite] tags on a page. That’s not what I’m looking for.



Well then, can you be a bit more specific about what you would expect a script to do?
Do you want it to ‘read’ all the text, determine what is a citation, then find the reference and provide the proper [cite] tag?

No, it’s not determining what the webpage has cited but that the webpage is a citation for others. Something like uses this - there is a Cite this Source button. Effectively the same as that.

That passes $_GET variables
I’m assuming what is returned depends on what they have in a database and not a “search the web now”

Unless I’m missing something, it looks like not everything has “Cite This Source” which suggests the link is only added when there is something in the database

That is, the citation is not generated, but is retrieved from an existing database
