How can I add an age verification popup?



I’m creating a website for a local brewery and need to figure out how to add an age verification request that pops up when visitors come to the site for the first time. Just needs to be basic and ask “Are you 21?” If “Yes,” let them into the site, if “No,” send somewhere else.

I searched and found a bunch of JavaScript options, but I can’t figure out how to implement it, since Squarespace 6 file modification & storage is limited.

Thanks in advance!

I built a simple age-gate solution for Squarespace. It's available here:


There's a small one-off charge to use it on your site. If you need a more advanced or customised solution, we can build these too.

Perhaps you might want to check out IDology's, ExpectID Age product that will help keep compliance while quickly confirming someones age accurately.

On the other hand the code below will do the most basic aspect if put on the main landing pages.

if ($_REQUEST["over21"] == 1) {
   $_SESSION["over21"] = 1;

   header("Location: " . $_REQUEST["redirect"]);
       <title>Verify Your Age</title>
       <a href="verify.php?over18=1&
redirect=<?=$redirect?>">I am over 21</a> | 
       <a href="http://www.google.com/">I am not over 21</a>

I just faced this problem myself (although I needed a verification page, not a pop-up). I couldn't find a solution that satisfied my requirements. I now this post is more than 6 months old, buy I'm leaving my answer in case anyone else needs it.

You can get my code at https://github.com/cotupha/octli

It has the javascript necessary, as well as other files that serve as example demonstraiting how to use the javascript. It is explained how to do it without activating developer mode (which was a requirement of my client).

"... It is explained how to do it without activating developer mode (which was a requirement of my client)..."

For those confused, it took me a minute of confusion as well, but according to Cotupha's instructions you would still have to set up the age verification code outside of squarespace. The first two steps wouldn't be possible with squarespace hosting as-is (non developer mode).

As it stands – I don't see any solution on the boards for an age verification that isn't just a cover page.
