Cookie notification bar

Last week, I wrote about why I now have a cookie notification bar in the top of the blog. What I didn’t tell you was how I did it.
 
One of the things I really like about WordPress, is the fact that there are a myriad of plugins to do just about anything. So, too with this. In fact, a search at WordPress.org/plugins for “Cookie” returns over four hundred results. Out of all of these, I chose one called UK Cookie Consent. The reason I chose that one, is that I found it unobtrusive and user friendly, while remaining compliant with the current legislation.
 
When it is installed, the plugin automatically creates a page called Cookie Policy on your WordPress blog. If you, like me, don’t want it displayed in the top bar, you can make it a child page of just about any other page you want. The plugin updates the link to point correctly. You can of course also edit the page, and add information, like the information I have added about external cookies.
