Hello, This is the best and only WP plugin which makes writing research articles practical on WP. It’s urgently needed to have an update that works. I wouldn’t mind paying for a license. So please Derek, do consider an update asap! Thanks!

I have not edited references on my blog since before the block editor. Now I have uninstalled and reinstalled academic toolkit and am trying to use it with the block editor. The user interface shows the bar starting with Add Reference and ending with three dots, but the bar (a-d) for inserting references is not shown. I have not found any way to insert a reference. I have 1296 items in my list of uncited references and I can select the one I want to insert. I just cannot get it to insert into the block where my cursor is located. Thanks in advance for your help!

I did not use this plugin, because I was dissuaded from its use by the author’s comments on this (very good) exchange ( Why am I leaving this review? I want the author to know that for a segment of the population, his design choices leave some of us to find other solutions. I design scientific software for a living, and I would appreciate the comments that I will make here. I can’t imagine having any citation application where the citations are not stored in a database. There is a lot to unpack on that post and I suggest others read it before they download this package. Also, it does contain this ironic gem: “The overall UX of this forum is horrendous.” In short, the author’s rigid design choices cause his userbase to segment (to what degree, I can’t say). I would like to thank him for his forthright description in this referenced post. I would suggest that he make it a sticky or change it into a FAQ. It actually saved me a ton of time, because I almost installed the plugin. Before we finish, yes I gave it two stars. I started at three to be neutral; however, your attitude to your users seems combative (and that warrants the downgrade).

Far better than anything else I’ve tried. Astonishingly rich in features, yet simple UI. Well thought out and very well done. Thank you

the classic editor plugin has 5+ Million Active Installations. There is no other plugin that has more installations. How can you possibly justify disabling support for it? Very bad decision.
