How to Add Age Verification to Your SIte in WordPress

Do you need to add an age verification
form to your WordPress site? Well keep watching in this video I’ll walk you
through how you can add age verification in WordPress To get this on our site we’ll be installing a plugin so let’s head over from our WordPress dashboard.
Fo over to our plugins area. We want to add new and in the search plugins area
we want to search for “Age Gate”. That is the name of the plugin we’ll be installing.
This is the one we want so let’s click install now. Once you click install
you’ll also want to make sure that you click activate as well. Once we install
it you’ll have an area over here that we can go to so we’ll go to Age Gate and we
want to go to restrictions so we can set that up. From here you can choose what
the default age needs to be and how you want to restrict the content and if you
have different age restrictions you can click on this and it’ll allow you to
restrict each post or page depending on the age level for that. Scrolling down, there are three ways that they can validate their age they can
either input the field, do a drop-down box, or simply click yes or no. I’ll click
yes or no and you can also allow them to enable remember me checkbox so it
doesn’t ask them again. If you have that enabled then you can auto check it so
that they don’t have to check it it’ll check it for them. Okay we’re done with
configuring this so I’ll just click Save Changes and we can open it up to see it
in action. So I’m going to right click and open up a new tab so I can go to the
site and this is what it looks like with just those few configurations done so
let’s see what we can do to adjust that a little bit. I’m gonna close this out, go
back to the Age Gate restriction settings and we can click on the messaging area.
From here we can give it its own headline and we can also give it a sub
headline. Okay, once we’re done with that we can, we’re gonna save changes from
that tab and then now we want to go over to the appearance area
and we can change this up a little bit as well. From here you can change the
background color if you want, you can add a background image if you want, as well
as a few other settings. So you can make this changes to make it look a little
bit more in line with your website. Once you’re done let’s click Save Changes and
then finally since we set it up to where you can change the each post or page
I’ll show you what that looks like. So I’m going to go into a post and from
here you can restrict or not restrict the content. You can even change it here
to make it younger if you want. So that’s how you make those changes and then just
quickly show you what this looks like once we made the couple of changes and
again you can make this as advanced or as simple as you want and that’s a real
quick and easy way to add age verification to your WordPress website.

  1. After i migrate from one server to another, i can only set the permalink to plain setting. Whenever i try to change to other custom setting, it doesn’t work.

    I always see the “ERROR 404 – PAGE NOT FOUND” message.

    I am using Dokan plug-ins for multi vendor for that Product permalinks need to be set to custom base.

    Please help to figure out permalink to other settings. Thank you.

  2. Thank you very much – I thought that doing this would be really stressful, took me 2 minutes. Thank you!

  3. Thank you I'm also interested in WordPress and if it dose phone verification and credit card age verification as well, these would also be very effective against minors and other types of risk's

    Would be greatly appreciated as my business requires absolutely no one under 30 years of age

    And if possible email verification and to prevent duplicate profiles

  4. After chosing white as my fornt color, I can no longer see the "Yes" and "No" text since the backgroung of the boxes are white, Can i change the color of the text in the "Yes" and "No" boxes to be black while the rest of the text is white?
