12021 – How to enable the cookie policy banner

If you want to let your site users know about your cookie policy you can enable the cookie info box. To do this, follow these steps:

    • Go to Settings in the left-sidebar menu and then select Global Settings.

 

    • In the Global Settings dashboard, click on the Cookies Info Box.
    • The Cookies Info Box settings will appear.
      • Activate Cookies Info Box: To enable the feature, simply turn the toggle on.
        Doing so will now display a banner at the bottom of all your pages (Except in the members portal) that will tell your users your site uses cookies and their use of the website indicates they agree with your cookie policy
      • Text: Insert the content you want displayed in the banner
      • Background Color: You can use the color picker to change the background color of the banner
      • Text Color: You can use the color picker to change the background color of the Info Box Text
      • Accept Button Text: this is the content that appears on the Accept button. When they click on the button, the banner will close and will no longer be shown to them unless they clear their cookies. If you inserted a third party script in the Third party script box then the scripts will run once the user click on the accept button.
      • Accept Button Background Color: You can use the color picker to change the background color of the Button
      • Accept Button Text Color: You can use the color picker to change the color of the button text.
      • Decline Button Text: This is the content that appears on the decline button. When they click on the button, the banner will close and any third party script you entered in the third party script box will NOT run
      • Decline Button Background Color: You can use the color picker to change the color of the button background.
      • Decline Button Text Color: You can use the color picker to change the color of the button text.
      • Third party scripts: If you insert any script here (for example google analytics or Facebook etc) the decline button will appear on the banner. These scripts will only run when the user clicks on the Accept button. If they click on the decline button they will not run and therefore any cookies they might use will not be installed
      • Show only for EU countries: Enabling this option means that the cookie banner will only be displayed to EU visitors.

That’s it, enabling this feature will help you ensure your visitors are aware of your site cookie policy.
