Who needs to add a term of services agreement in WordPress?
You need to know that WordPress can be used to create almost any type of website. In order to comply with legal requirements, some site owners may need users to agree to the site owner’s terms and agreements.
These terms and conditions can protect site owners from future legal problems. Website content that handles personal information, forum, and eCommerce, or publishing sites that contain sites intended for adult visitors can benefit from using this feature.
One of the ways to fulfill this legal requirement you just need to add a service page and add a link in the footer of your website. However, in most cases, you may need users to approve before they can continue.
Let’s see how you can easily add terms of service agreement in WordPress.

The first thing you need to do is install and activate the Agreeable plugin. After you activate the plugin, please enter the menu Settings »Agreeable to do plugin settings.
The first time, please provide an error message if the user forgets or does not check the consent box. After that, you need to select the Term of Services Agreement page from the drop down menu.
Next, you need to enter a message for the user to let the user see the service agreement. You also need to tick the box to remember the user agreement for 30 days. This is so that users don’t have to tick every time they visit your site.
If you want to use a popup lightbox to display the contents of the term of services agreement, check the Active? below the options lightbox. You can also select the text and background color to use in the popup lightbox.
