Australian Internet Blackout WordPress Plugin

I have been a bit lax recently about posting to my blog, and updating the Conroy’s Christmas present list. But my spare time has been taken up learning to write WordPress plugins.

For my first WordPress plugin I present the Australian Internet Blackout.

This plugin automatically adds the necessary JavaScript to you blog to display the protest message to people visiting your site. With the hope of bringing the government’s censorship plans to a larger audience.

The Easy way to install:

  1. Go to the ‘Plugins’ ‘Add new’ menu in your WordPress blog
  2. Search for ‘Australian Internet Blackout’
  3. Find the plugin in the list returned (it should be the first one) and click ‘Install’
  4. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress

The hard(er) way to install:

If you prefer to install things on you blog yourself you can.

  1. Download the Australian Internet Blackout plugin
  2. Unzip the plugin.
  3. Upload it to your blog’s plugins folder
  4. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
