HONcode Status usage instructions

After installing the HONcode Status plugin, a new button will appear at the top right corner of the browser. This button has three states as represented in the table below:

State Description
Default state
  • This is the default state of the button when no Web page is opened ('about:blank' page).
  • Clicking on the button will open the page containing the HON Code of Conduct: (http://www.hon.ch/HONcode/Conduct.html).
Non-accredited Web site
  • The greyed HONcode seal indicates that the currently visited Web site is not HONcode accredited.
  • Clicking on the button will open the page containing the HON Code of Conduct: (http://www.hon.ch/HONcode/Conduct.html).
Accredited Web site
  • The HONcode seal indicates that the currently visited Web site is HONcode accredited.
  • Clicking on the button will open the HONcode verification page for the Web site (http://www.hon.ch/HONcode/Conduct.html?HONConduct<HONcode number>) allowing users to double-check that the Web site is accredited.
  • The tooltip displayed on the button shows the HONcode number of the Web site.

The plugin adds an item in the browser's preferences allowing users to disable the plugin (without uninstalling it).

To disable the plugin on Mozilla or Netscape, you have to:

  1. Open the preferences panel by going to 'Edit > Preferences...'
  2. Go to 'Advanced > HONcode Status' in the preferences panel
  3. Uncheck 'Display the HONcode status icon'
Disabling HONcode Status in Mozilla

To disable the plugin on Mozilla Firebird, you have to:

  1. Open the options panel by going to 'Tools > Options...'
  2. Select 'Extensions' in the options panel and select the 'HONcode Status Extension v1.0' in the list of installed extensions
  3. Click on the 'Disable Extension' button
Disabling HONcode Status in Mozilla Firebird

Starting with version 0.8 of the plugin, a button is displayed in the preferences (for Mozilla / Netscape) or settings (for Mozilla Firebird) to automatically check for updates.

Starting with version 1.0 of the plugin, a button is displayed in the preferences (for Mozilla / Netscape) or settings (for Mozilla Firebird) to uninstall the extension.

HONlookup usage instructions

After installing the HONlookup plugin, select some text (e.g. "eating disorders"), right-click on it to open the context menu, and select the item 'Lookup at HONcodeHunt' as shown in the screenshot below:

Lookup at HONcodeHunt

This will make a search for the selected text on HONcodeHunt as shown in the screenshot below. In the screenshot, you can also see that search results are displayed in the search tab of the sidebar (because the HONcodeHunt Sherlock plugin was installed as well).

Search results

Preferences / Options for HONlookup are accessible the same way as with HONcode Status.

Starting with version 1.0 of the plugin, a button is displayed in the preferences (for Mozilla / Netscape) or settings (for Mozilla Firebird) to automatically check for updates.

Starting with version 1.0 of the plugin, a button is displayed in the preferences (for Mozilla / Netscape) or settings (for Mozilla Firebird) to uninstall the extension.
