Adding SOPA blackout to a Drupal Gardens

If you want to blackout your site in protest of SOPA/PIPA, here's what you gotta do:

(hat tip to for the blackout page).

Important: Keep the url handy. 

Once you follow these instructions, your site will go dark (if it is January 18th 2012).  If you want to get it back, you will need to delete the block later.

  1. Navigate to Structure -> Blocks
  2. Click on "Add Block"
  3. In the "Body" use the dropdown to change from "Safe HTML" to "Full HTML" (the buttons will go away)
  4. Make the block show by setting a region.
  5. Copy the following and paste it into the body:




<script type="text/javascript">
    var a = new Date;
    if (18 == a.getDate() && 0 == a.getMonth() && 2012 == a.getFullYear()) {
        window.onload = function () {
            var cover = document.createElement('div');
   = 'fixed';
   = 9999999;
   = window.innerWidth + 'px';
   = window.innerHeight + 'px';
   = 0;
   = '#000';
            cover.innerHTML = '<iframe


Comment moderation fixed on Drupal Gardens / D7

Yay!  While I was off basking in the newborness of my daughter (code name poopiepants) the Gardens team was busy banging out a bunch of new features and making bug fixes in Drupal 7.

One of the small ones which was a huge thorn in my side since migrating my blog from my old blog was a few bugs in Drupal 7 comment moderation. Mollom support in Gardens is just around the corner, but in the mean time, I got a bad case of the spammies.

A brief summary:

  • Previously, the nice approve and delete buttons on each unmodderated comment did nothing.  Now they work
  • Previously, when you multi-selected comments to approve, only the first one actually got approved, now they all will.

Sweet!  Keep on Gardening!
