Before following these steps, please be sure that you have:
Added your website's URL (either during the signup process or in the settings page)
Check step 1 - 4 in the Get Started with Legal Monster guide to create all of the above.
To install your widget, you'll need your cookie widget code snippet.
To find your code snippet, go to the Legal Monster dashboard and select "Widgets" in the side menu. Click on the cookie widget you previously created and copy the code.
It will look like this:
To insert the code snippet on your page, you need to use a plugin called "Scripts n Styles", which you can install through Wordspress' Plugin library.
Once installed, you can access the plugin through the Wordpress Dashboard under the "Tools"-menu:
Once you're in the "Script n Styles" interface, make sure that you have selected "Global" from the tab menu bar at the top:
Now scroll down to the textarea called "HTML (end of the
body tag)", and insert your widget code snippet here.
The final step you need to take to make sure your cookies are compliant is to block the scripts that set them on your website, so the widget can enable them only when a visitor gives consent.
This step is a bit more technical, however, this guide shows you how to categorise the scripts that set cookies on your website to enable blocking. You might need a developer to help you.
Congratulations on completing your first step towards collecting compliant cookie consent. Pad your self on the back and know that our monster Sven is proud of you.
