Bibtex entries require different fields to be filled out. For more obscure references, this can get in the way. If I know what I want the citation entry to say, is there some way I can ddirectly enter that into a single field so that latex will accept the entry and not add question marks to my entry? For example, this citation

  @misc{naluwind,
    author = "{Nalu-Wind Documentation}",
    title = {{ \url{https://nalu-wind.readthedocs.io/en/latest/index.html} retrieved on 12/7/2018}},
}

Yields undesirable question marks. How do I make them go away? Is there some way I can just put my entire citation in the title field?

    There is no guaranteed way that will let you do that. The point of BibTeX is that you input the data in semantically useful bites (author, title, year, ...) and the style decides the output. For manual control over entries a manual thebibliography is probably easier. What you can do will strongly depend on the style you use. Some styles will print ???? or something else if required fields are missing others are going to be much more lenient. For biblatex there is tex.stackexchange.com/q/438759/35864, tex.stackexchange.com/q/455765/35864 might also be of interest. – moewe Dec 8 '18 at 15:29

A more common strategy is to just fill in all fields and selectively suppress those that you don't need. You can also do this on a per-type basis (which is really what you need, in my opinion). You can find some good answers here and here. This should really have been a comment, but I'm new on this forum and I don't have enough reputation "points" in order to do just that. Sorry.

This worked for me:

@online{naluwind,
  title={},
  author={{Nalu--Wind Documentation}},
  year = {{\url{https://nalu-wind.readthedocs.io/en/latest/index.html} retrieved on 12/7/2018, version: \url{https://github.com/Exawind/nalu-wind/commit/700c93e075c0e7c43330e77630b6c2a5789e0b0a}}},
  url={},
  }
