Viewing 8 replies - 1 through 8 (of 8 total)

    On 18th January your site will display a customisable page.

    I am guessing that it will change automatically tomorrow.

    Yes, I get that, but there is an option to turn it on right now, to test it. Turning that option on didn’t work.

    If you are looking for more options:

    You can tweak if you want to totally black your site out, if you want it to show a continue link that leads them to the page they were heading too, set which days you want it to show, and a lot more!

    Hope that helps!
    Thanks, Ben

    I feel like I’m speaking into a void. Never mind.

    I’d be happy to help you with the plugin below, the other one I don’t know the author. I do have two of my sites using:

    And it works great!


    “By default, logged in users will see your site’s full content. If you would like logged in users to get the Stop SOPA Blackout page instead, click here”

    …are ‘ya loggin out and then checking it?

    ‘Cause mine is working like a million bucks in test mode.

    [edit] I’m sorry. I should have said: are you SURE you are logging out!
    My bad.

    @dazzlindonna – sorry for late response. It was night-time here in the UK and also the authors of plugins don’t get notified of new messages here, which I still find strange.

    Anyway, onto the problem

    1. If you have WP Super Cache plugin enabled, it does work, but webkit browsers cache a copy for a very long time, so open up a different browser

    What theme are you using?

    Any caching plugins?

    What URL are you testing?

    If you would like to try and remedy it yourself, you could try finding line 314 of sopablackout.php and change the ‘template_rediect’ bit of the line as seen below:

    add_action(‘template_redirect’, ‘sopablackout_content’);

    … to one of the following:


    I would start at the bottom and work upwards (please ignore the asterixes when copying and pasting.)

    @sage – finger’s crossed (although to be on the safe side, it’s good to test it)
