This plugin hasn’t been tested with the latest 3 major releases of WordPress. It may no longer be maintained or supported and may have compatibility issues when used with more recent versions of WordPress.



This plugin fetches Tor bridges and displays them in three different ways:

  • as links added to random words in a piece of text
  • as normal text
  • as an HTML comment

The idea is that you install the plugin, use Tortellini to display Tor bridges in a less popular page/post in a corner of your site, and then you change robots.txt so well-behaved robots won’t index that page or post.

That way, people that know about it can get Tor bridges from you (preferably over https), if they are blocked from getting them somewhere else.


  • Unzip the plugin archive into the “wp-content/plugins/” directory.
  • Activate the plugin in the “Plugins” menu.
  • Create a page or post in an obscure corner of your site with one of these shortcodes:
  1. [tortellini text=”lots of text”] (This will use random words in your text as links to the bridges. The text may not contain HTML, but you can write “\\n” for a new line.)
  2. [tortellini list=”y”] (This will display the bridges with linebreaks between them.)
  3. [tortellini comment=”y”] (This will put the bridges in an HTML comment.)
  • Put the page or post in robots.txt, so it won’t be indexed by well-behaved robots.
  • Tell net activists and freedom fighters about your page or post.
