The citation function, type "automatic" of the "beta" function of the "beta wikitext editor" is to mixing/switching the texts. For example, for the IBM about FIPS 140–2 function adds publisher (IBM Knowledge Center) in the title, and add url ( to work/author...

"<ref>{{Citar web|url=|title=IBM Knowledge Center|}}</ref>". Elilopes (talk) 18:21, 8 November 2018 (UTC)

Thanks for your note. It looks like someone pasted in an invalid URL. It should not end with "concept/omn_con_fipssupport.html%7C".

However, even with the correct URL, the results aren't much different. The HTML in IBM's webpage doesn't specify a name for the website, using any of the standard formats. Therefore, the automatic tool guesses that it's probably "". The alternative is to leave it blank.

Using the correct url "omn_con_fipssupport.html", the name for the website or author name appears in the title (titulo=IBM Knowledge Center), reference used in the ptwiki article FIPS.

Similar to website techtarget whatis title is "... Definition from". ~~~~

IBM has decided to make that page on their website be called "IBM Knowledge Center". This is line 233 in the HTML from the page you are looking at:

<title>IBM Knowledge Center</title>

When the citoid service looks at their HTML, it finds the part that IBM has declared to be the page's <title>, and it copies IBM's choice of title into the |title= field for the citation template.

There is no way for the citoid service to guess that IBM has put the "wrong" thing in their page title tag. The only way to "fix" that is to contact IBM and convince them to change the HTML on their page to suit you.

In the meantime, you can fix the citation by editing the template to display the information that you think is proper.
