Had to stop using it once my site got more busy since PHP based age gate isn't compatible with cache plugins. But if you're not planning to cache, this works fine

Like my review on another similar plugin, because this plugin uses PHP to check cookies, it doesn't work with cached pages...such as with the W3 Total Cache plugin or WP Engine.

My customers see it on every visit to the page even if within the time frame the plugin is set for. Support board is never answered by anyone even though there are active topics. Plugin looks to be abandoned as it hasn't been checked for latest compatibility.

Works very well. Had issues in Internet Explorer, but figured them out. Does have some weird dashes it adds to the separation of the drop downs... and it kicks out an odd query field for a home page landing URL... which might not be good with SEO or Google. Doing research.

The only thing that's missing for me is a couple of templates to make the form look better.

I am so happy to have found this plug-in. It works on my hosted WordPress site and does everything I need it to do. I found that it reflects our page's style and works on mobile.
