Hi Nathalie Dorémieux here and in this video I am going to show you
how to quickly and easily add a cookie
notification on your wordpress site so
first you are going to go
to your wordpress dashboards and go to plugins and click on add new
and then we are going to search for
cookie consent
and we are going to use this plugins called cookie consent from catapult themes
you are going to click on install now and then activate
once it's activated you go to settings cookie consent
and here you are going to see some of the
setups so you can choose if the
section is going to be close on the click of a button
on scrool or if it's
time so if you choose timed then
you can set the duration here on how many
seconds you want it to show
you can choose to have a display on the first page only
exclude some pages exclude some zones
set the expiration of the cookie
and then save changes the second tab
is the content tab
and that's where you are going to choose the text
that you want to display
so here I am going to say this site uses
cookie by using this site you accept our cookie
policy as described in our privacy
policy
and then you have a button
and then you can choose what
you want the link to be named
so I have found out more it's linking to a cookie policy
page that has the actual policy
or you can choose to link it to an outside
extandal link
open in a new tab and this is
the label of the button to actually close
so we saved changes and then the last
tab is the styling this is where you are going to decide where
it displays the colors of the text
of the background and everything so here I have put it at the bottom
you can put like a CSS
class if you want to style it
but you can choose basically the text color
background color the link color button color
etc and you can even use the X
if you prefere that they close with the X sign
so once you have done that
basically visit the site
and then you can see
these bars show up at the bottom si it's going to stay there
until I close it because I chose
to hide it on click
so I can click here to find out more
and go directly to the
cookie policy file
or I can click on close to just close the window
like this
I hope it's helpful and I will catch you next time
