Then you download the exhibit json (using the handy little scissor
thing), put the json with the html,
and edit the html with the new data path. Voila, encore:

we haven't gone the extra step of letting you point to the bibtex via a
URL rather than uploading it
to Citeline from your computer. I doubt if that would be hard to add, if
there's a lot of demand for
that, but I also suspect not many people will have bibtex files sitting
around on their websites...

you currently need to edit the exhibit.html file somewhere other
citeline to get that to work,
but at least you can do it.
