CiteKite automatically validates quotations you make of other websites and lets the world know you care.
It's all about credibility – both yours, and the websites you're visiting. By making an effort to get independent verification, you're enhancing your own standing as an author. You're helping visitors to your site, too, with extra information and context that saves them time and effort.
Yes. You can use CSS to change the label's colours, but under our terms you must not hide the label, add text to it, or render it unusable. The basic structure of the HTML code used to display the label, and its contents, is as follows:
<span class="ckt_box"> <span class="ckt_lgo">CiteKite verified</span> <span class="ckt_info"> ... </span> </span>
You may need to use the CSS !important declaration to make sure that your styles override those assigned by CiteKite. Find out more about using CSS at http://www.w3schools.com/css/.
Add the following code between the <head>...</head> tags on your page:
<script>cks.hideErrors = true;</script>
A genuine label, when clicked, will always show a link to the CiteKite.com website with more information about the quotation to which it relates. Other webites don't have control over the information on CiteKite.com, so if it's here, it's verified, by us. Unauthorised use of the CiteKite verified label constitutes a breach of copyright. See our Terms and Conditions of Use for more information.
If your quotation won't validate, then it's probably not the same as the online source material. Check the online source, then change the contents of your blockquote to match the text on the source site precisely - cut and paste it straight from your browser. Failing that, we may not have access to the page you're quoting. We can't validate quotations taken from pages that are behind pay walls or that require that you log in before accessing them.
No. CiteKite doesn't make any calls to your web server - everything happens at the web browser and on our servers. It may slightly increase the time it takes for the page to fully load, depending on the number of quotations on the page, but our systems should react within milliseconds so that your site's visitors won't see any difference.
