How End-Users Can Enable/Disable the Kids Mode

 

 

Introduction

By enabling the parental control feature in the CMS, you can add/edit content (i.e., video/audio) those are only appropriate for the kids. While creating the digital content, you can enable the “Mark Safe for Kids” option in the content form. When the end-users switch to the kids’ mode on your website, they will only view the contents that are added only for the kids.

The kid’s mode can also be selected by the visitors while browsing your website. The content which is not appropriate for the kids will be automatically hidden from the featured content section, the listing page, and search when the kid’s mode is selected. The logged-in end-users need to type their password to switch back to normal mode from the kid’s mode.

Enabling Parental Control

  • To enable the parental control feature, navigate to “Manage Content-->Settings” in the CMS.
  • Scroll down to “Parental Control” and select the option “Enable Parental Control”.
  • Scroll down again and click on “Save”.

 

 

Adding Parental Control to Specific Content

Once the parental control feature is enabled, you can select this option from the “Content Forms” while creating any digital content (video/audio). Either you can create new kids’ safe content, or you can make existing content as kids’ safe. You can add parental control to both video and audio single-part, multi-part (parent, child), and/or live streaming content.

  • To add a new kids’ safe content, navigate to “Manage Content-->Content Library” in the CMS.
  • Click on “Add Content”.
  • Select the “Content Form” to add the type of content (i.e., single-part, multi-part, live streaming, etc.)
  • Add all necessary metadata for the content (i.e., content name, category, genre, story, etc.)
  • Enable the option “Mark Safe for Kids” in the content form.
  • Click on “Save & Continue” to create the content.
  • To enable parental control for any existing content, go to the “Content Library” and click on “Edit” to edit the content, and then enable the option “Mark Safe for Kids” in the content form.
  • Click on “Update Content”.

 

 

How End-Users Can Enable/Disable the Kids Mode

The end-users can enable/disable the “Kids Mode” from your store front-end.

  • When the kid’s mode is enabled, the end-users can only view the content which is only added for the kids.
  • The content which is not appropriate for the kids will not be displayed on the Featured Content Section, the Content Listing Page, and in the Search.
  • The kid’s mode can be enabled by both the visitors and logged-in users.
  • The visitors can enable/disable the kids’ mode without typing a password.
  • However, if the kid’s mode is on and an existing end-user wants to disable it, then the end-user needs to type his/her password.

 

Note: By default, the Kids Mode is disabled on the store front-end.
