How to use the Age Gate widget to create an age verification banner notice on your Elementor site
Welcome to the documentation for the HappyAddons new “Age Gate” widget! This widget ensures that visitors confirm their age before accessing specific content on your website. Whether you’re managing a liquor store, a gaming platform, or any other age-restricted content, the Age Gate widget provides an easy solution for age verification. This widget integrates seamlessly with your Elementor-powered website, allowing you to create a secure and compliant user experience.
For example, let’s consider a pretend scenario. Imagine you have a gaming platform and want to ensure that only visitors over 16 years are allowed to access certain pages. By using the Age Gate widget, visitors will be asked to enter their date of birth or confirm their age before proceeding to the page. This simple but effective age check helps prevent underage access, ensuring both legal compliance and peace of mind for your business.
