Instead of adding Terms and Conditions to the signup page, this plugin presents all users except admins with your terms and conditions the first time they login. The Admin menu is hidden until they accept your terms if the option to require agreement on ‘All Admin pages’ is selected. Existing users and those added in the admin will also need to agree to the Terms and Conditions on their next log in. After the terms are accepted, users are presented with a fully customizable welcome message to help them get started using WordPress.
