Digital Climate Strike WP


Digital Climate Strike

This September, millions of us will walk out of our workplaces and homes to join young climate strikers on the streets and demand an end to the age of fossil fuels.

The Digital Climate Strike’s WordPress plugin will allow anyone with a website to join the digital climate strike in solidarity. Click here to learn more.

How it works & Demo

When you install this plugin and enable the Digital Strike widget via Settings in your WordPress admin, it will show a footer banner (demo) informing visitors that your site is supporting the Global Climate Strike and directs them to also join the strike:

Then at midnight on September 20th for 24 hours, the banner will expand to be full screen (demo), showing an unavoidable message that your site is joining the Global #ClimateStrike for the day, directing them to join the Global Climate Strike movement:

For those who cannot shut down their website for the day, a closable overlay option can also be configured (demo):

The widget is designed to appear once per user, per device, per day, but can be configured to display at a different interval.

Please take a look at widget.js if you want to see exactly what you\’re embedding on your page.

The widget is compatible with Firefox, Chrome (desktop and mobile), Safari (desktop and mobile), Microsoft Edge, and Internet Explorer 11.

There are a number of ways to customize the widget in the WordPress Settings admin section. It provides details on what each option does.


  • Digital Climate Strike Footer Banner
  • Digital Climate Strike Full Page Banner
  • Digital Climate Strike Closeable Overlay


  1. Upload the plugin files to the /wp-content/plugins/digital-climate-strike-wp directory, or install the plugin through the WordPress plugins screen directly.
  2. Activate the plugin through the \’Plugins\’ screen in WordPress
  3. Use the Settings->Digital #ClimateStrike Settings screen to enable the widget and configure its behaviour

Great little plugin, which I was happy to install and plug on social media. So now what? Are there plans for a future digital strike? If I don't hear from you in a few days, I'm going to assume not, and delete it from my sites. For security-related reasons. Thanks.

You can just use this out-of-the box. There are also some really nice options like: language (English, German, Spanish) cookie expiration disable google analytics when the widget starts/ends whether the full page displays a close button I had to wait a little bit before the footer showed up (caching?), but other than that, set up took less than two minutes.

Very simple but with all necessary settings in the backend. You can temporarily enforce showing the widget for testing.
