PMC validationEdit

(copied from Help talk:CS1 errors)

As a recent PMCID can now exceed 5000000, the current validation check in Module:Citation/CS1 can erroneously flag genuine ids.

Example: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5095368/

To fix this, it is necessary to change line 1011 which currently reads:

local test_limit = 5000000

to some number which is larger than the largest PMCID that may be anticipated in the near future. --RexxS (talk) 17:24, 24 April 2018 (UTC)

Hmmm, where did you read this? the test limit is already set to 30 millions, not 5 millions ! verdy_p (talk) 21:03, 24 April 2018 (UTC)
Sorry I confused PMID (limit to 30 millions) and PMC (limit set to 5 millions, increased now to 6 millions).... you're correct, but this is documented ! verdy_p (talk) 21:05, 24 April 2018 (UTC)
