Internet Document In-Text Citation

Hello everybody.


My Grad. School uses a modified version of APA and I'm modifying APA 7 to match with it.

I successfully modified most areas but I have a problem regarding in-text citations of internet documents.


According to my Grad. School:

When an internet document text is cited in text it needs to be cited as (http-1) (http-2)... and so on.

But when an internet image is cited in text it needs to be shown as (source:[website],access date:[the date])

I couldn't find how to put the increasing numbers for texts and how to have a different condition for images

Could you please help me find a solution

Thank you very much

So, I've come to a solution by exploring the components. I thought i should share it here.


In the "style editor" under "internet document" section I modified the default in-text rule to http - (text component) and (number) component which i manually assigned to each internet reference


and modified the condition "has option 1" according to image citation requirements. So that in word when i select insert advanced-> format option -> 1 that condition works.


Kind of silly writing back to myself but I couldn't find this in the forums or user's manuel easily.
