Do you need to add a cookie consent popup in WordPress? Well keep watching, in this video I'll walk you through how you can install a cookie consent popup on your WordPress website. the European Union's cookie law requires websites to get user consent to set any cookies on their computer as a website owner you'll need to get that done but it can be quite easy if you use a plugin so if you're ready let's get started. first thing we want to do is head on over to our WordPress dashboard and you want to go over to our plugins area,



 we'll click add new, from the search area let's look for cookie consent. Scrolling down this is the one we're looking for so let's go ahead and click install now.



 Once it's installed you also want to make sure that you click activate. Now that it's activated let's go to our Settings, Cookie Consent area to configure it.


 Under the general tab we want to go ahead and keep the default settings for most of these. For the popup closed area you can choose between on click, on scroll, or timed. For this we're going to keep the on click area and now we just need to scroll the way down and click Save Changes for that.


 Under the content tab you can completely change the way that the popup looks, changing the heading text, the notification text, and you'll also want to make sure that you set the more info page to the privacy policy page on your website and once again we'll scroll all the way down to click Save Changes.

 Finally under the Styles area we can choose where to position the popup. You want to choose from the top, bottom, and a few other areas for this one we're going to put it at the bottom and you can also change the way that it looks from here. We'll keep the default settings like we see here and once again we'll scroll all the way down to click Save Changes. Now that we saved all the changes you can see right here what the cookie popup will look like on my website and that's a real quick and easy way to add the cookie consent popup on your WordPress website.
