Filters operate on all the text content in Moodle (such as resources, forum posts, user profiles, glossary entries and so on).  They can process the text to change formatting, change words, add links, embed media and so on.

Join the discussions about filters in the General add-ons forum, or for Mathematics filters, the Mathematics tools forum.

Filters: COinS
The point of the filter is to automatically link from citations to the full-text of articles online, using the OpenURL mechanism. One of the easiest ways to get COinS data into a Moodle page is to drag and drop a citation from the Zotero citation management software into the Moodle html editor. As long as Zotero is configured to 'Copy as HTML' in the 'Quick Copy' setting, this will include a COinS and formatted reference when you drag and drop into an HTML editor.
