A number of high-profile websites, including Wikipedia, Reddit and BoingBoing, are going to black out on Wednesday, January 18 to protest against the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) bill that is currently in the US House of Representatives (and its Senate version). If you want to join in the protest, here’s a code that will allow you to easily black out your WordPress.com-blog. Simply add a Text-widget anywhere in the blog and paste the code below as its body text. This will place a black bar on top of the blog content with a link to americancensorship.org. You can adjust the size and the position of the bar to cover the area you want covered. If you want to black out your whole blog, put “100%” as the width and the height.
