Big Day Release: Magento Age Verification Page

Magento Age Verification Page is a solution for websites which require from a user to confirm that he agrees to follow certain rules and conditions (like meeting the required age, ageing with the terms of services, etc.). The module adds a special verification popup window either to a specific category/product or for the whole website which any visitor should pass to be able to access the content.

Key features:

  • Age Verification pop-up window;
  • Manage popup content;
  • Apply verification window to a product page, category page or for the whole website.

In certain cases it is necessary to apply some verification process before a user or customer will be able to access the content of the website. That is why we have developed a special module which allows you to create and apply such a verification popup to your store.

The main advantage of this module is that it is very flexible: with this extension you can apply the verification process either to some specific page or directory or for the whole website.

Moreover, the module gives you an option to upload any image and supply it with any text you find necessary. And all this is easy to install and set up.

 

How to Configure

Once the module is installed it is time to set up our first verification popup window.

Log into your admin panel and go to System -> Configuration -> Verification Page.

The available settings include the following options:

  • Enable for frontend – select Enable to switch on the verification popup for your website;
  • Global verification – if you select Enable, the verification popup will be applied for all pages;
  • Single check – single check allows to apply verification only one time. Once the verification is passed, the user will not be asked again when visiting other pages of the website;
  • Verification age – specify the age which a user should meet when passing the verification;
