Installation instructions for Cookie Banner on WordPress

Updated over a week ago

Why do I need a cookie banner?

To maintain GDPR compliance your website must display a cookie consent banner which allows the user to accept/decline the use of cookies while browsing your site.

The cookie banner needs to be installed in your website’s header in order for it to appear on all pages. There are two main ways of accomplishing this on WordPress, plugins and manually editing the code. The plugin method is generally recommended but you can choose the one to your comfort level. Note that you must have a business level or higher WordPress account to use plugins.


WordPress Plugins:

  1. Navigate to the Plugins > Add New tab on the left navigation bar.

    Plugins -> Add New
  2. In the search bar, search for “insert headers and footers”.

    Insert headers and footers
  3. Find the plugin, and click install.

    Install plugin
  4. Once it is finished installing, click activate.

    Activate plugin
  5. Before adding your Enzuzo Cookie Banner to your site, make sure you configure it correctly in the cookie banner settings from the Enzuzo dashboard through the "Configure" page on the top navigation bar. For more on configuring your cookie banner, see this article.

  6. Once you’ve customized your cookie banner to your liking, click “Add to Website” in the top nav.

  7. On the "Add to Website" page, select "HTML Install"

  8. Click the “Copy Code to Clipboard” button to copy the embed code snippet.

  9. Back on WordPress, on the left navigation bar, navigate to Settings > Insert Headers and Footers.

    Settings -> Insert Headers and Footers
  10. Paste your copied cookie bar script from Enzuzo into the script editor titled “Scripts in Header”.

    Scripts in Header
  11. Scroll down to the bottom of the page and click save.


You are now done! If you navigate back to your store page, you will see the newly installed cookie banner.

Updating Privacy Policy Link Step-by-Step

  1. Enzuzo allows for a custom privacy policy URL on your Cookie Banner. To do so, on the "Configure" tab from the "Cookie Banner" settings, click "Banner Text".

  2. Here in the "Banner Text" settings, you can change different text that appear on your cookie banner, such as banner message, as well as the "Privacy Policy URL". Click "Save" once you've finished editing.

  3. In your store, by hovering over the privacy policy link on your cookie banner, you should be able to see the updated link in the bottom left corner.
