A number of clients have incorporated custom disclaimer pages before allowing their users access into Dekho. The Dekho site over at the Western Australian Planning Commission is a good example of this. If end-users agree to the terms, they get into Dekho. If they don’t, they get redirected onto another link.
I spent some time today creating a simpler disclaimer for new visitors to Dekho.
- If they accept, they get access to Dekho (which loads up in the background)
- If they refuse, they get re-directed to another URL.
- If they click ‘Do not ask again’, they won’t be prompted again, assuming that they chose accept.
We have provided the tool on the downloads gallery, along with some notes on how to set it up.
Perhaps if you don’t need a disclaimer, it might still be a good idea to let new users know a little more about your Dekho implementation with the help of an alert bar and a custom help page/video.
