UK Cookie Consent
[resolved] Cookie bar not showing (11 posts)

    Hello

    I've just installed the UK Cookie consent plugin at http://www.dulwichchildcare.com, but the bar isn't showing. Unfortunately I don't have administrator access to the site (I'm doing it for a friend, and her site designer has gone awol without providing the admin password!). I don't have ftp access either. I logged in with my friend's user name and installed the plugin logged in as her. Could this be the reason the plugin isn't working?

    Other aspects of the plugin work ok, the cookies policy page has been created, and the settings page all looks fine.

    Thanks very much in advance for your help!

    Hi

    My guess is that wp_footer() isn't present in the theme footer.

    But if I've chosen cookie position as 'top', shouldn't it then work? Or am I missing something?

    Not if your theme doesn't contain wp_footer() as that is where the plugin hooks into the theme.

    Oh I see! Thanks. So just to clarify, the plugin won't work at all for any themes without wp-footer?

    That's correct.

    I have the same problem. The plug-in worked good, and then stopped. I got the wp_footer in the theme. I have turned off all other widgets to check if there are any conflicts between js, but still it doesn't work

    I also have a theme that I'm using that doesn't seem to have wp_footer()

    At least the bar is not showing so I am assuming this is the case...

    I have found this as a solution somewhere and wondered whether it would work?

    "The answer to this is to go into the plugin and change the calls of wp_footer to wp_head, this should work. Unless there is some requirement for the plugins functions to load after the page has loaded, also in this case a footer <div> could be added and a call to the wp_footer could be achieved, this call could be added to the base division that is located in his/your theme. "

    The site I'm working with is this one: http://iainbakerweddingdj.co.uk

    Thanks
