Support » Plugin: EU DSGVO Helper » Error with YT embeds

  • Resolved kpc211



    First of all I would like to thank you for this plugin. There is really a lot of GDPR-related plugins for WordPress available but all of them do things I don’t need (such as displaying cookies notifications – while I am not using cookies on my web page) and don’t do things that I need.

    While local caching of Google Fonts and emojis is what I have done already long ago manually (since it makes the website load faster – as opposed to what some people claim, and I anyway had to change the fonts because by default the template I use had ones that didn’t include Polish diacritics and this is necessary since the website is in Polish). But replacing YT embeds with previews will be definitely useful for me.

    Or it would be… if it worked. Because after I installed it, the only I can see when I try to embed a YT video is:

    in the place of the embedded video.

    It looks like the plugin should create a directory dsgvo-embed, in it a directory of the name corresponding to the YT video ID and create probably a HTML page with a downloaded preview image of the video which gets placed in the IFRAME in the post – but it doesn’t work. It doesn’t create anything in the dsgvo directory. I tried creating in it manually a directory named dsgvo-ytembed and even giving it 777 permissions – but unfortunately it doesn’t help in any way. Nothing appears in this directory created by myself and the embed, obviously, returns a Not Found error.

    Do you have an idea what might be the cause?

    And one more question. What I actually really need is a feature which would allow me replacing the Facebook widgets until the user expresses a consent for that – it could be e.g. a button displayed instead of the widget or – probably better – a pop-up message, like it is usually done for cookies, but anyway the Facebook widget must load only after the user clicks that he agrees and never load if he clicks that he doesn’t agree. Is it likely that such a feature could be introduced in the near future in your plugin?

    Vielen Dank im Voraus,

    Hi Kacper,

    last question first: I plan to integrate this when I have time.

    Please delete the folder – this is virtual and not really existant.
    The problem is with your permalink-structure including “index.php”
    But don’t change that – I will try to create a work-around for you.

    Yes, it works. Thank you very much and danke schön.

    I will delete the demo post from my website because it might be misleading for those who visit it.

    Looking forward to the Facebook feature 🙂
