Cookie Bar

Description

A simple, lightweight WordPress plugin for displaying a discreet notification bar that is dismissable and the dismissal is saved by cookie. Perfect for implementing the EU cookie law (GDPR)!

The Cookie Bar plugin creates a small bar at the bottom of the website with a short customizable message about cookies and an accept button. Once a visitor has accepted the Cookie Bar, it then disappears.

Feel free to try out the plugin through our installation of Cookie Bar.

Troubleshooting: If you or your visitors are using an adblocker that can block cookie bars, the bar may not show up. Whitelist your website in your adblocker’s browser add-on/extension.

Activate the plugin and go to Settings > Cookie Bar.
Configure it as you would like.
Save.
That’s all!

This is by far, the best simple & discrete cookie compliance plugin. Love the color & text customization options. I only wish that either the disclaimer text had adjustible padding options so that compliance accessibility icons don’t obscure the text, or even better, if it had an accessibility button built in to stay on screen even after cookies are acknowledged.

It’s a really good plugin! It doesn’t use lots of resources or third-party sites and I like that it’s open source. There are a couple of things I’d like to see: I would like to be able to set the bar to the middle of the screen. Change size of both the bar (wide & height). Change font size.

I needed simple GDPR cookie bar and this plugin is the best + lightweight. U can write any message to your visitors in any language with hyperlinks. U can set button colour, but im very satisfied with default colors 🙂

Thank you so much for this minimalistic plugin. There are so many plugins out there, providing senseless features which no internet user wants to have. I think all this Cookie consent should be implemented in a browser not in every single site in the internet. But since we have to do it, the simpliest solution it the best.

Dear Nimonogi, We really like your plugin: – it is simple & discreet, – lightweight / fast loading, and – it works reliably! Thank you for offering an excellent plugin to the Wordpress Community. Kind regards, Pairfum London
