Live Examples

  • You can choose to setup our GDPR plugin in any way that you like.
  • We have created the plugin with as much flexibility as possible as organisations interpret the Cookie Law and Cookie Consent Policy differently.
  • A few examples of how you can setup our plugin in various ways are below:

OPTION A
No cookies are stored on users’ computers until the user accepts cookies:
Example 1

OPTION B
The ‘Full-Screen Cookie Wall’ option is used, cookies are accepted by default but the user has the option to turn them off:
Example 2

OPTION C
Cookies are accepted by default but the user has the option to turn them off:
Example 3

OPTION D
Cookie Consent Banner is displayed at the top of the page. Cookies are also accepted automatically just by scrolling down the page:
Example 4

There are many other settings available that you can use to create your own unique Cookie Consent Banner and satisfy the Cookie Compliance Law – our plugin is very flexible.

Custom Layout

  • You can also create your own custom front-end layout.
  • Simply copy the “gdpr-modules” folder from the plugin directory to your theme directory.
  • If you do this, your changes will be retained even if you update the plugin in future.
  • Any customisation should be implemented by experienced developers only.

FAQ

How do I setup your plugin?
  • You can setup the plugin in the WordPress CMS main menu (on the left-hand side) -> GDPR Cookie Compliance.
How can I link to the Cookie Settings Screen?

You can use the following link to display the Cookie Settings Screen window:

[Relative Path – RECOMMENDED]
/#gdpr_cookie_modal

[Absolute Path]
https://www.example.com/#gdpr_cookie_modal
https://www.example.com/your-internal-page/#gdpr_cookie_modal

Pasted code is not visible when view-source page is viewed.
  • Our plugin loads the scripts with Javascript, and that’s why you can’t find it in the view-source page.
  • You can use the developer console in Chrome browser (Inspect Element feature) and you’ll find the scripts there.
Can I use custom code or hooks with your plugin?
  • Yes, we have implemented hooks that allow you to implement custom code snippets.
  • You can also find the list of all pre-defined hooks here: https://wordpress.org/support/topic/conditional-php-script/
Does the plugin support subdomains?
  • Unfortunately not, subdomains are treated as separate domains by browsers and the plugin is unable to alter cookies stored by another domain.
  • If your multisite setup uses subdomain version, each subsite will be recognised as a separate domain by browsers and will create separate cookies for each subdomain.
Once I add scripts to this plugin, should I delete them from the website’s code?

Yes. Once you setup the plugin, you should delete the scripts you uploaded to the plugin from your website’s code to ensure that your scripts are not loaded twice.

Does this plugin block all cookies?

This plugin only restricts cookies for scripts that you have setup in the Settings. If you want to block all cookies, you have to add all scripts that use cookies into the Settings of this plugin.

Does this plugin guarantee that I will comply with data protection laws?

This plugin is just a template and needs to be setup by a developer in order to work properly.
THIS PLUGIN DOES NOT MAKE YOUR WEBSITE COMPLIANT. YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR ENSURING THAT ALL LEGAL REQUIREMENTS ARE MET ON YOUR WEBSITE.
