    As I understand GDPR, a user has the right to change their choices/privacy settings. How do I provide a link to the opt out message so that users can change their previous choice.

    I have to go out now but see this thread https://wordpress.org/support/topic/cookies-with-opt-out-link-not-showing-up/#post-10341728

    I posted here by mistake this is obviously WP statistics.

    Have look here at privacy settings http://www.altontowersbedbreakfast.co.uk/
    the are on the left of every page.

    I will try and tell you what I know when I return

    Oh, on the other thread, no need to install earlier versions, it is not the fix that I thought it was but I did suggest it.

    This is what I did,

    I needed to add domain names, however, if I created a parent category, such as other cookies, then added the domains as children, only the parent category (Tab) would work, the child domains carried the text “opt out” and opened in a blank page. I will be revisiting this now that I have more time.
    Anyway as a quick fix, I created new Tabs for Adobe, LinkedIn cookies, Twitter etc and added the domain eg http://www.adobe.com to the new tabs. Just to reiterate, I did not add them as a child domain to a parent category. I deleted the the old child domains that carried the text “opt out”. All the new ones worked.I need something quick but as mentioned earlier, I will have more time to play soon. It is a really good plugin.
    I guess that you have the shortcode [gdpr_preferences text=”Privacy Preferences”] and [gdpr_request_form type=”export-data”] . Just in case, there are more here https://gdpr-wp.com/knowledge-base/functions-shortcodes/

    Once you get this sorted, you wont need anything else it deals with the cookies and the requests for data.

    Regards

    How do i get the I Agree, Deny buttons to work?

    I never noticed that they didn’t until I checked again. A screen refresh cleared the box from the screen.
    It works instantly on my laptop test site with minimal plugins installed.

    I have W3 Total Cache on the live site and I suspect it could be this causing the problem

    Not suitable really, if I can’t fix it I’ll disable and find another statistics plugin.
