Hi All,

I am trying to use ZotPress to display a group library.

Page where library should display:

I am trying using zotpress shortcode to embed a zotero group library into the page

shortcode: [zotpressLib userid="4686060"]

Zotero group:

When I try to embed the group library it says: "There are no citations to display" but as you can see from visit the group on the Zotero website, there are 10+ resources that should be displayed in the embedded group library.

I am wondering if it might be a HTML and/or server issue based on these troubleshooting tips form the developers:

Any insight you have would be much appreciated, thank you!

I did a bit of debugging and Zotero is returning the following:

[json] => Invalid key
    [tags] => 
    [headers] => Requests_Utility_CaseInsensitiveDictionary Object
            [data:protected] => Array
                    [date] => Tue, 10 May 2022 20:23:22 GMT
                    [server] => Apache/2.4.53 ()
                    [strict-transport-security] => max-age=31536000; includeSubDomains; preload
                    [content-length] => 11
                    [content-type] => text/html; charset=UTF-8


So I'd suggest that you may have Zotpress incorrectly configured. Make sure you've entered a valid API key into the settings.

Thanks for looking into this Boone, and sorry! You are right, the private API key config was not set up correctly.

Thanks for that lead - looks to be working now.
