Kiosk Mode

Creating A Kiosk Mode Website

The first step is to create a special kiosk mode website.
This website is different from your auction website and not one you would publish the address of.

Click on Website and then Create Website


Select the Kiosk Template for this website. It is also necessary to give it an address which should be something distinct to the main website address. It may be of use to include Kiosk in the address for easy reference.


Click on Save Website to create it.

To view the website click on Website → All Websites


Click on the kiosk website address to enter the website editor.

The kiosk website can be edited just like other websites in Auctria. You can add your own text and images, for example, to provide instructions to your bidders about how the event will be run.

Entering A Kiosk Mode Website

To use a kiosk mode website on a tablet or laptop first sign into Auctria as you normally would using your email address and password.

Click on Website → All Websites to access the list of websites and click on the menu icon next to the kiosk mode site.


You can choose to enter kiosk mode either in normal mode or unrestricted.

In normal mode, you must provide a password to leave kiosk mode and access the admin side of the site - this is a security feature - since you are leaving the device unattended for bidders to use.

In unrestricted kiosk mode, there is no need to enter a password making it more convenient for testing purposes only as an example.

Leaving A Kiosk Mode Website

To exit a kiosk mode website, scroll to the bottom of the page and click on the Leave kiosk mode link at the far right.


If you were in normal kiosk mode, you would see a box prompting you for a password to Leave kiosk mode as well as options to Return to kiosk mode and Sign out.
