Age-verification popup in Webnode

Would you like your website to have beautiful popup 18+ years old (erotic websites, sales of tobacco products, etc.) for adults only?

If you have created a website and u are looking for the “pop up 18 years old” function, I will not please you, but there is currently no such function in the Webnode CMS editor.

Webnode, however, allows you to add the HTML code of the pop-up, which you can easily generate with an external service, but the pop-up window will be displayed directly on your website.

Let’s start creating a pop-up together!

Free popup vs premium version

This ageverification widget that I will show you in this tutorial is using freemium model. The external service Elfsight works by offering a certain number of views in the free version (LITE) (currently it is 200 views / month), so it is quite enough for a smaller e-shop/website.

With more traffic, it is necessary to purchase one of the Premium plans offered by Elfsight service after reaching the limits. The price of Premium plans starts at 5 USD/month.

  • pop-up erotic content (e.g. tantra massage pop-up)
  • pop-up for sale of weapons
  • pop up for sale of THC, CBD products

A few words at the end

In this tutorial, I have shown the external service Elfsight, which allows users to create a simple pop-up window and verify the age of visitors. I hope my tutorial was helpful and help u to install a pop-up window on your website.

In conclusion, I could say that adding an age verification widget is not only a responsible step in accordance with the law, but also a show of care for your visitors, especially if the content or products are intended for adults. In today’s modern times, the protection of minors is very very important.

On behalf of the editorial staff of Wpromotions, we wish you much success in the online world and, above all, a lot of fun with the WEBNODE editor.

Nobody knows – we don’t know the answer to this question.
