FAQ

Support

Visit the WordPress support forum here for free plugin support only. Premium support is provided through our Premium Knowledge Center and by contacting us from the WordPress Dashboard plugin’s settings page.

Will it show ads on my website?

Our plugin is 100% ad free.

Does the design display my website CSS styling?

The display design is independent of the Theme CSS to ensure a consistent, clean and straight-forward user experience. It will use your theme’s font family, if set, to match your website fonts. Users will see a hint of your web page behind an elegant black opaque background. The background color and transparency can be edited with Premium upgrade.

Can I adjust the transparent background?

No not in this free version, but with an upgrade to Premium you can edit the background color and transparency in addition to button colors

Can I add my logo or images?

Not in this free version. The age verify screen is the first thing your visitor will see when going to your website. This is your opportunity to grow brand awareness. Upgrade to Premium to add your logo. You can upload a PNG or JPG. Our technology automatically sizes your image to display maximum 650px wide or tall (centers top of page). Images smaller than 650px display at their native size.

Can I add a headline?

When you upgrade to Premium you unlock two additional text fields. We planned these for marketing copy so they are formatted as a large headline and a block of text below the headline positioned neatly underneath the logo top of page. The age verify window is the first thing your visitor will see when going to your website. Marketing copy can maximize your first impression.

Is it mobile friendly?

Yes, the age verification pop-up is specially designed to be responsive on desktop and various mobile devices. The content will automatically adjust in optimal size and position for the device used for legibility and no scrolling.

What is ADA compliant design?

We’ve designed our age verify pop up to meet standards for ADA compliance so that users with disabilities will have access to the form. This means readable text, colors and contrast meet certain guidelines. Once you change colors, edit or add design elements (Premium features upgrade required) it may impact the ADA standards the default design had originally met. As a Premium member you will have access to email technical support. If you have concerns about your design changes you can send it to us for a quick look and feedback.

Does it work if my website uses caching?

Yes, this plugin is designed to work with caching plugins, and sets the DONOTCACHEPAGE flag so that pages are not cached without the age verify pop-up. You do need to clear the website page/server/CDN cache on plugin activation so the pop-up overlay code is included on every page. Until then, visitors will not see a pop-up.

Does it have an option to enter and verify a birthdate?

There is no birth date validation. Our simple and streamlined design provides yes/no buttons to allow the user to self-validate they are age 18+ for adult sites or “Yes I am of legal age” and “No I am under age” for vape or alcohol sites (combined with an editable legal disclaimer).

What ages will this validate?

Adult verification specifies 18+ with Yes/No buttons paired with an adult content warning. Vape verification asks visitors to self verify they are of legal age in the location they reside. Alcohol verification provides 21+ default text that is editable. The alcohol and vape verification can be edited to work for different ages and locations. The “No” error message for all types displays “Sorry, you must be an adult of legal age to enter this website.” Review our demo sites and screenshots to view default messaging for each verification type. You will be able to read and edit each disclaimer when the plugin is installed and you select your settings.

Once a user has validated age, does the pop-up keep appearing?

No, our free standard version includes a session cookie allowing validated visitors to freely browse your website without hassle. When the session is over, they close the browser window and return, they will be asked to validate again. Our Premium upgrade includes a checkbox for return visitors if you’d like to enhance the customer the experience.

How long is the cookie duration?

The duration of the user’s session. Once they close the browser window and exit your website the session ends. They will experience age verification when they return to the website. A return visitor cookie is available when you upgrade to Premium.

Does it support HTTPS and SSL?

Our plugin is compatible with HTTPS and SSL, and we recommend your entire website runs over https to comply with today’s web standards and to make it search engine friendly.

Can I restrict a specific page or section of my website?

Not currently. Please send us a note if this feature is important to you so that we might plan it in a future release.

Does it work with WooCommerce or other eCommerce shopping carts?

Yes, the age verification pop-up will restrict all pages on the website when installed to the same domain.

Do under age visitors redirect to another URL?

No, for optimal user experience our plugin does not redirect users who have selected the “no” button. Instead they receive a relevant and easy to understand error message.

Is it SEO friendly?

Yes, this plugin works with SEO plugins and is search friendly. It will not impact your search engine optimized website. The age verification pop-up does not block your website from being crawled and indexed by search engines. Bots are allowed to bypass the verification.

Can I use my own copy to replace default text?

In the free version you can edit the age prompt header and the legal disclaimer text. The legal disclaimer text field supports HTML, allowing you to include a link to such things as your Privacy Policy, T&C, or long legal statement. Upgrade to unlock additional text fields, a headline and paragraph text, that appear top of window. The button text and error messages are not editable in any version.

Are multiple languages supported?

There are no translation tools in this plugin. Some text fields are editable, see below.

Do I need a 18 U.S.C. Record-Keeping Requirements Compliance Statement?

We do not guarantee the accuracy of this information, it is not maintained with changing law, and we are not authorized to provide legal advice. With that being said… This plugin provides a pop-up window that is NOT linked from pages of your website. Therefore, we do not claim it is a proper solution for compliance with federal law 18 U.S.C. 2257. According to federal law, producers of a “visual depiction of an actual human being engaged in actual sexually explicit conduct” must display a Record-Keeping Requirements Compliance Statement on every webpage that contains depictions, but can be in a “separate” window that opens upon the viewer’s clicking or mousing-over a hypertext link that states, ’18 U.S.C. 2257 [and/or 2257A, as appropriate] Record-Keeping Requirements Compliance Statement.’” In other-words, a common solution is to display or link the statement globally so it is always available to visitors, or from specific pages.
