CONFIGURE CONTENT ADVISOR RATINGS FOR YOUR WEB SITE
If you've ever browsed through the settings for Internet Explorer,
you might have run across Content Advisor, a feature in IE that lets
you block site content by various rating levels. By default, IE uses
the ratings defined by the Recreational Software Advisory Council
(RSAC), which folded into the Internet Content Rating Association
(ICRA) in 1999.
While RSAC no longer exists, IE's Content Advisor feature does, and
many people use it as one method for blocking objectionable content.
To accommodate site visitors who use Content Advisor, you can configure
your Web site with the appropriate ratings.
To configure content ratings for IIS, follow these steps:
1. Open the IIS console from the Administrative Tools folder, and
open the properties for the site.
2. On the HTTP Headers tab, click Edit Ratings to open the Content
Ratings dialog box.
3. On the Ratings tab, select the Enable Ratings option for this resource.
4. In the Category list, click a category, and use the Rating slide-bar
to choose a value based on the content of your site. Repeat the process
for each category.
5. Enter your e-mail address in the provided field, set an expiration
date for the content ratings, and click OK.
If you want to configure the site to also use the ICRA rating system,
you must do so via the organization's Web site. Note that IE users
must download and install a ratings file for ICRA and configure IE
to use the ratings system.
