Content warning for Koken 16 July 2016 00:43

Content Warning for Koken is a lightweight JavaScript plugin for alerting users about explicit content on you site..

It's pretty much the same plugin as the Cookie consent for Koken.

Content Warning 1.0.1

A Koken Plugin to allow site owners to display an acceptance dialog to their users and have that follow them throughout the site.

Latest version can be downloaded from the Koken Community Support forum.

Will Content Warning make me compliant with the law?

If you install Content Warning, you will be informing your users that your website got some explicit content. This is the same approach that many other sites have taken towards compliance.

Whilst I can’t guarantee that my plugin will constitute total compliance for everyone in the EU/US, this approach does appear to have satisfied regulators for the time being.

Do You need to do anything else?

Simply telling users that your site has some explicit content is the absolute bare minimum. Content Warning allows you to link to a content warning or privacy policy, if you have one. To comply with the law, I strongly recommend that you prepare a brief policy and link to it. Here’s my sample content warning , as an example.

Settings

You have a fine grained control over almost every part of the plugin

Cookie Path

The path for the consent cookie that Content Warning uses, to remember that users have consented to cookies. Use to limit consent to a specific path within your website.
Default: ‘/’

Cookie domain

The domain for the consent cookie that Content Warning uses, to remember that users have consented to visit your site. Useful if your website uses multiple subdomains, e.g. if your script is hosted at www.example.com you might override this to example.com, thereby allowing the same consent cookie to be read by subdomains like foo.example.com.
Default: The current domain

Expiry Days

The number of days Content Warning should store the user’s consent information for.
Default: 365 days

Link Target

The target of the link to your content warning policy. Use to open a link in a new window, or specific frame, if you wish.
Default: In the same window

Themes

Included with the plugin is 10 different themes, 5 light and 5 dark, to make it as transparent to your site as possible.

They are:

Push from top

Light top Dark top

Inline top

Floating "dialog" and Animated floating "dialog"

Future versions might include the ability to create and upload custom themes to further make it "yours".
