Support » Plugin: WP GDPR Compliance » Checkbox Error Message Redirect

    Hi, We are testing the module to use solely for the comment checkbox functionality, and we are wondering why the decision was made by the developers to redirect the user to a new error message page if the opt-in checkbox isn’t checked. This experience seems unintuitive and doesn’t really match web standards for form validation error messages. What is the reason for not displaying a required error message under the checkbox if the user doesn’t select it? Thanks!

    Hi @davel35,

    This wasn’t our decision but it is the standard WordPress Comments behaviour to show any message in a separate screen. To not mess with functionality too much we left it as is although we agree this isn’t a good user experience. Hopefully Core decides to change this at some point!

    Ok. Thanks for the feedback.
