Add-On Type(s)



This extension allows you to show a message to your users periodically on login (every session, every week, every year, etc.).

What Roadblock does is look every time someone logs in to see if they have been shown a message yet, and how long ago. If they have not yet seen the roadblock, or if it was over a specified length of time ago, the roadblock will be displayed (or, optionally, they will be sent to a url of your choosing). Although I built it for displaying the term of use, it would also be useful for displaying reminders or instructions. It can be used this on a site to display the terms of use to members upon their first login. It also has the capability to track users either by User ID or by individual computer (using cookies), so if several people use the same login credentials they will each see the message.

Please note: There is no checking to ensure that the user “agrees” to the message. If you need their access to the site to be conditional on accepting an agreement, you will have to look elsewhere.
