    Scroll through Terms and Conditions

    Hi All,

    I am looking at modifying our Terms and Conditions acceptance method so that the user has to scroll through the content before being able to tick and confirm acceptance. I know, I know...very annoying for the user but our legal team are pretty adamant that it is the way to go. (we currently use a simple tick and link combination).

    Only problem now is that I don't know how to implement this? Can anyone point me in the right direction?

    Many thanks

    The simple option would be to include the T&C in an iframe or scrolling div, and have the confirmation check box at the bottom of the iframe/div, with a note under the iframe alerting users to the fact the check box is at the bottom of the T&C.

    If you're looking to do this dynamically, so a script detects whether the user has scrolled to the bottom of not, you are probably going to have to use some Javascript, which unfortunately, I can't help with.
    Regards,

    That Code Punk code is antiquated and does not follow best practices.

    I would like to point out that someone could scroll down without actually reading the terms and conditions.

    Keep in mind that some Internet users use a browser that doesn't have JavaScript enabled.

    I suggest you read these:
