The GDPR Cookie Consent plugin will assist you in making your website GDPR compliant. It comes with a host of features some of which are listed below.

Key Features

  • The plugin will enable a notice with Accept and Reject options. The cookies are not rendered by default and only upon user consent. (The cookie value will be set to null by default; it takes a value 'yes' when the user clicks Accept and no upon 'Reject'. Your developer can check this value to set a cookie accordingly.)

  • Admin can configure cookie details and their description from the backend. The list of cookies can be displayed in your cookie policy page by using a shortcode.

  • This plugin adds a subtle cookie banner to your website either in the header or footer so you can show your compliance status regarding the new GDPR law.

  • You can fully customise the cookie notice style so it blends with your existing website: change the colours, fonts, styles, the position on the page and even how it behaves when you click Accept.

  • You can choose to make the cookie notice bar disappear after a few seconds (completely configurable) or to accept on scroll (an option available under Italian law).

  • It also has a Cookie Audit module so you can easily show what cookies your site uses and display them neatly in a table on your Privacy & Cookies Policy page.

The plugin uses the following cookies

  • viewed_cookie_policy Is the primary cookie that records the user consent for the usage of the cookies upon accept and reject. It doesnt track any personal data and is set only upon user action(accept/reject).

  • cookielawinfo-checkbox-necessary/cookielawinfo-checkbox-non-necessary Records the default button state of the corresponding category. It works only in coordination with the primary cookie.

This plugin supports WPML and qTranslate so your translation needs are covered.


  • Fully customisable to look just like your own websites style: customise the colours, styles and fonts
  • Put the cookie bar in either the header or the footer
  • (Optional) accept cookie policy if the user scrolls
  • (Optional) automatically close the cookie notice bar after a delay (delay is configurable)
  • (Optional) cookie banner can be permanently dismissed or accessible through a show again tab
  • (Optional) show again tab is fully customisable including position shown on page and styles
  • Cookie Audit shortcode to construct a nicely-styled Privacy & Cookie Policy
  • WPML compatible
  • qTranslate support
