In diesem Abschnitt wird beschrieben, wie du das Plugin installieren kannst und wie es arbeitet.

  1. Lade das eu-cookie-law-Verzeichnis nach /wp-content/plugins/ hoch
  2. Aktiviere das Plugin in WordPress über das Menü ‚Plugins‘
  3. Gehe zur EU Cookie Einstellungsseite
  4. Gehe durch die einzelnen Schritte und wähle aktualisieren!


Shortcodes verfügbar

You can block code in posts, pages and widget by wrapping it with these shortcode:
[cookie] … [/cookie]
[cookie height=“100px“ width=“100%“ text=“Hi WordPress“] //My code [/cookie]

To display the button to revoke consent (if cookies accepted) or accept cookies:

You can also revoke consent by adding ?nocookie=1 parameter to your url.
Ex. or

To display a list of active cookies on user client:

PHP Funktionen verfügbar

You can check the consent with:
if ( function_exists(‚cookie_accepted‘) && cookie_accepted() ) {
// Your code

If you want to display the cookie-block message:
generate_cookie_notice($height, $width);
generate_cookie_notice_text($height, $width, $text);

if ( function_exists('cookie_accepted') && cookie_accepted() ) {
    // Your code
} else {
    generate_cookie_notice($height, $width);

Please note that cookie_accepted returns true if you disable it in the settings panel, if you excluded the current page or if you are a search engine 🙂

If you think that we should enhance something let us know in the forum.

Auto block

The plugin offers an exclusive function that allows you to block iframes, embeds, objects and scripts in posts, pages and widgets. This can be activated in the plugin options panel because is disabled by default.

To exclude a page from the filter set a custom post field eucookielaw_exclude to 1. Just enable „Custom Fields“ in „Screen Options“ and in the „Custom Fields“ box type the name, the value, and hit „Add Custom Field“.

If you want to exclude a script, you can type between <script> and </script> the string eucookielaw_exclude.
Ex. add class=“eucookielaw_exclude“ or a comment.


We are working to improve cache compatibility. As for now, conflicts may occur.

WP Super Cache (sperimental*): open the file wp-content/advanced-cache.php and add the following immediately after <?php opening:
if ( !isset( $_COOKIE[‚euCookie‘] ) ){ return; }

So that you have:
if ( !isset( $_COOKIE[‚euCookie‘] ) ){ return; }

function wpcache_broken_message() {

This plugin is officially certified for WPML. You can translate every string with WPML’s String Translation module.

WPML’s String Translation module is part of the Multilingual CMS package. To enable it, you first need to download and install it from your account > Downloads section.

Then, go to WPML->String Translation and use the display filter, at the top of the String Translation page, to determine which strings to display.

Click on the translations link to open the translation editor and adjust the strings as you want. Be sure to click on „translation is complete““ after you translate. Incomplete translations will not appear in the site.


does not work at all

it looks really nice, but might require an update. does not work at all on wp 4.9. every browser is acting differently with this plugin, neither cookie-acceptance nor revoke have any effect at all, banner still shows on new loaded page. either plugin is outdated or lacks documentation on how to set up properly. support seems to be weak too when looking into all the unanswered requests. good looks unfortunately don’t help with poor functionality.

Excellent extension with great initial settings

This extension is perfect for implementing the cookie law. Its design is sober and fine as is. The extension is fully translated for french and no additional setup is necessary. It can be finely tuned according to the site needs. Thank you very much for your work.

Smart & Cool

Kleines aber feines Cookie-Tool nach EU-Richtlinien, um auf der sicheren Seite zu sein.


Estoy todavía construyendo la web. Pero este plugin por ahora va bien.
