We wanted to make it as easy as possible for WordPress websites to join the movement against SOPA so we have created a plugin that allows you to easily direct your visitors to a splash page or even replace your entire site with an anti-SOPA splash page. This is a search engine friendly plugin as well so you don’t have to worry about damage to your site. Everything is done with temporary redirects.
If you have any questions please leave a comment!
Here is a list of the current blackout dates:
Of course with the options the WordPress plugin gives you you can set a lot more dates, adjust how often the message is shown, and adjust who sees the message. To download the WordPress plugin click here and view the different plugin options here.
Instead of the normal glorious, user-curated chaos of reddit, we will be displaying a simple message about how the PIPA/SOPA legislation would shut down sites like reddit, link to resources to learn more, and suggest ways to take action. We will showcase the live video stream of the House hearing where Internet entrepreneurs and technical experts (including reddit co-founder Alexis “kn0thing” Ohanian) will be testifying. We will also spotlight community initiatives like meetups to visit Congressional offices, campaigns to contact companies supporting PIPA/SOPA, and other tactics.
January 23rd – This is the day before the bill goes to the floor for discussion and this is another date we highly recommend showing the anti-SOPA splash page.
