How do I set age restriction filters on my journal or entry?

On the "Display" Tab of the My Account Settings page, there's an "Adult Content" option, which gives you three choices: "Is Suitable For Everyone", "Should Be Viewed With Discretion", "Is suitable for ages18+". Whichever of these you choose will be the default setting for all of your journal entries.

Below the "Adult Content" menu is an optional box marked "Adult Content Reason", where you can write whatever you like. This text will be displayed wherever your Age Filtered Notice appears. For example, if you wrote "Nudity and Obscene Language" in your "Adult Content Reason" box, the Age Filtered notices would appear as follows:

(Adult Content)


Age Filtered Notice:
You're about to view content that username marked as inappropriate for anyone under the age of 18. To continue, you must confirm that you're at least 18 years of age. username provided the following reason for this journal being marked inappropriate for anyone under the age of 18: Nudity and Obscene Language

If the person is less than 18 years old they won't be able to access this page.

(Viewer Discretion Advised)


Age Filtered Notice:
You're about to view content that username has advised should be viewed with discretion. To continue, you must confirm you want to view this content. username provided the following reason why this journal should be viewed with discretion: Nudity and Obscene Language

This notice won't keep people 18 years of age or less from viewing your journal's content.

You can also set Age Restriction Filters on your individual journal entries. At the bottom of your "Post an Entry" page, there are boxes and pulldown menus allowing you to customize each entry. For "Age Restriction" you can choose from:

  • Journal Default
  • No Age Restriction
  • Viewer Discretion Advised
  • Age 18 and Over


You can also write a "Reason for Age Restriction" in the text box provided.
