And I got it all the time in the past few days that "HTTP error:

One or more of the web resources required to create this citation are not accessible at this moment." --It's gonna be awesome (talk) 08:24, 28 June 2019 (UTC)

It seems that is not accessible from Toolforge:
$ hostname

$ nslookup
;; Got SERVFAIL reply from, trying next server

** server can't find SERVFAIL
The same command works fine on my PC. My guess is that the issue resides in the Toolforge's DNS or is a configuration problem on In either case I don't think there is much that I can do to resolve it.
P.S: Also tried Citoid. It fails with "We couldn't make a citation for you" error.

@Dalba: I tried Citoid and it did fail with "We couldn't make a citation for you" error. --It's gonna be awesome (talk) 14:12, 30 June 2019 (UTC)

More citer bugsEdit

Mostly citer has been pretty reliable. However, I thought I'd let you know of a few more DOIs that citer returns only an error. The same DOIs work on DOI Wikipedia Reference Generator, so I think we can conclude that these are citer bugs and not crossref problems.

Maybe these are not too difficult to troubleshoot? Sorry I don't have the programming knowledge to be more specific here. Forbes72 (talk) 03:08, 17 August 2019 (UTC)

@Forbes72:, I just fixed and updated citer. Thanks for reporting the issue. Dalba 05:58, 17 August 2019 (UTC)

dead-url -> url statusEdit

Hi, thanks for the great tool, I love how it expands URLs (any chance for; I just wanted to alert you that 'dead-url=yes' parameter has changed to 'url-status=dead'. Quuux (talk) 07:19, 19 September 2019 (UTC)

Hi Quuux, I've update the parameter name. Thanks for bringing my attention to it. Regarding, it should be possible, but I'm busy these days and I don't know when I'll be able to take a close look. Dalba 13:30, 19 September 2019 (UTC)
