Los Angeles, CA (June 28, 2010) – As Internet Safely Month comes to a close, the Association of Sites Advocating Child Protection (ASACP) is concluding the month by announcing the launch of the Restricted To Adults – RTA™ Website Label Plugin for WordPress.

WordPress is an open source content management system. It has many features including a plugin architecture and a templating system. Used by over 300 of the 10,000 biggest websites, WordPress is the most popular blogging software in use today. As of September 2009, it was being used by 202 million websites worldwide.

RTA was developed by ASACP out of a need for a free, easy to use, and internationally recognized label that designates content for adults only. The RTA label is a unique string of “meta data” which can be inserted into the computer code of any website. Parental filtering software recognizes the tag and prevents children from viewing adult content. Installing the RTA tag on a WordPress install can be somewhat complicated, so the Restricted to Adults plugin makes it one click -- activate the plugin and your site is restricted to adults.

The RTA Plugin was developed by Saguaro Digital, a web and application development firm. Saguaro Digital developed the RTA Plugin pro-bono to make it easier for webmasters to correctly label their content using just "one click"/.

“No one wants a mandatory, complicated, and potentially expensive website labeling system. This is why ASACP created the Restricted To Adults – RTA Website Label. Whether for a traditional website, mobile content, or now WordPress; ASACP is dedicated to helping anyone who wants to quickly and simply label with RTA in order to prevent children from unknowingly reviewing age-restricted content,” stated ASACP CEO Joan Irvine. “We are so grateful to Saguaro Digital for volunteering to make the RTA WordPress plugin possible.”

The RTA WordPress Plugin is available at: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/restricted-to-adults/. Complete information about the RTA label is available at www.RTAlabel.org.
