FIRE’s Spotlight Widgets

By August 31, 2009

In addition to FIRE’s Red Alert widget and Speech Code of the Month widget, FIRE also has a widget for each of the schools we rate in our Spotlight database. The speech code widget features FIRE’s iconic traffic light graphic indicating a Spotlight rating of red, yellow, or green. The colored lights represent the extent to which the school’s policies protect freedom of speech. (For more information on FIRE’s rating system, click here; for more information on FIRE’s widgets, click here.)

To add the widget for your school to your website, here’s all you need to do:

  • Visit www.thefire-dev.wp.eresources.ws/spotlight and select your school by state, region, or just by typing it into the search box.
  • When your school’s page comes up, look on the right sidebar to see the widget for that particular school. Below it is a box with some text in it-select it all and copy it to the clipboard.
  • Go to your blog or website, and paste in the text wherever you want the widget to appear (it’s made for a sidebar, but should work anywhere).
  • Send us a link to your site with the widget posted on it, your mailing address and your t-shirt size.

Then we’ll send you a free FIRE t-shirt!
