Finally, a WordPress setting for SOPA blackout! has finally installed and announced an option that gives you a way to blackout your blog tomorrow for The Great American SOPA/PIPA Blackout. It will also put a protest ribbon on each page of your blog until January 24, the day the Senate is scheduled to vote on PIPA.

Just go to Dashboard > Settings > Protest SOPA/PIPA and click your selection.

Cool! Personally, I like my blackout overlay better, but hey, this should draw a lot more participants. If only it had come a little sooner, so there would be more time to get the word out.

Okay people, get busy clicking those settings right now. No more excuses. And spread the word. There’s not much time …

    1. I may use mine to extend my blackout beyond the hours WP has specified. Ending the blackout at 8 pm ET means my blog will light up again at 6 pm here, and that’s earlier than I’d planned.

      1. See you’re thinking like me. They are only blacking out from 8-8 and I’m thinking of doing it starting at midnight and ending at midnight. Actually I’m thinking of using yours possibly until the 24th, just haven’t made that decision yet, that’s a lot of days to post and no one be able to read but hey that’s the point.

        1. Midnight to midnight. That was my plan, too. (Great minds think alike!) I’m assuming, or hoping, that I can put up my overlay at midnight here, then the WordPress screen will black mine out from 8 am to 8 pm, and then mine will show again from 8 to midnight. I’m going to change mine to say “Stop SOPA & PIPA.”

... and that's my two cents
