How to Add GDPR Cookie Consent to Your WordPress Site
We will be using GDPR Cookie Consent created by WebToffee
The reason we will be using this is for its ease of use. Many other plugins require API keys or linking through other sites or signing up to other sites. With this plugin all you have to do it is install it, log in with Google, activate it and its ready to go.
How to Install
From your main WordPress dashboard, head to Plugins on the left hand site and then to Add New.
In the search bar on the right hand site of the page type in and search for GDPR. You will see a plugin called:
CookieYes | GDPR Cookie Consent & Compliance Notice (CCPA Ready)
Once Installed, click activate and then head back to your dashboard. You will see there is now a GDPR Cookie Consent button on the left hand side of your dashboard, from here you can check settings, privacy overviews and anything else associated with the plugin.
GDPR Cookie Consent Finishing Up
Now all you have to do is log into your site and check that you are getting a pop up asking about cookie consent. Great, thats it now and your done.
To remove this plugin if you rather use another, simply head to your plugin page. Deactivate the plugin and then move it to trash.
