WordPress: How to display a Cookie banner/notice

This feature is also available for Blogger/Blogspot.

The ePrivacy regulations and new GDPR mean that you may wish to add a Cookie notice/banner to your site. This will make it clear to people that view your blog that your site uses cookies for things like Google Analytics or social media widgets etc.

The good news is that we have a completely free plugin available which will automatically display a banner on your site. Simply follow the steps below to install it:

1. Go to the Plugins page in your dashboard.

2. Click “Add New” at the top of the screen.

3. Search for “pipdig cookie” using the box on the right side of the screen.

4. Click the “Install” button next to our plugin.

5. Wait for it to install, then click “Activate”.

That's it! The cookie banner will now show on your site for any new visitors.

We've included two excellent videos below which help to explain cookies 🍪
