Support » Plugin: WP Comment Policy Checkbox » Link to Privacy Page doesn’t work?

  • Checkbox shows up, which is good, but I have pointed the Privacy Policy link in your settings area (Settings > Privacy) to my /privacy-policy/ page and that link fails. In fact, it just reloads the same page in a new tab. Is this a bug? Help!

    I just tested it and there are no problems in that sense. Can It be the cache?

    I’m a bit confused how you can say that? I look at the source to the page and see this:

    [input id=”policy” name=”policy” value=”policy-key” class=”comment-form-policy__input” type=”checkbox” style=”width:auto” aria-required=”true”]
    I have read and accept the
    [a href=”” target=”_blanck” class=”comment-form-policy__see-more-link”]
    Privacy Policy[/a]

    (I changed the angle brackets to square brackets so you can see the code)

    First, the link points right back to the current page and second the target has a typo too: It should be “_blank” without the extra ‘c’. While you’re tweaking, add a space after the checkbox and before the “I have read”, please? Thanks!

    Same error here.

    Is the problem still?
    Do you have the possibility to disable the other plugins to see if it is an incompatibility between plugins?

    About the ‘blanck’ error, it will be fix in the next release.

    I have the same problem. “Privacy Policy” links to same page instead of the privacy policy page.

    As I’ve seen on GitLab the solution is in issue #13:

    I do not know if I understand it well.

    1. The plugin is active.
    2. In ‘Settings/Comments’, you set one WordPress page as ‘privacy policy page’.
    3. But, in the frontend the link is not to the selected page. It is to the same page.

    That’s correct?

    Right now the plugin don’t use the Privacy Policy link put in your settings area (Settings > Privacy). It use the Privacy Policy link in your Discussion Settings or the external link.

    In the next version I will try to fix this:
