  • I know this was done with the best intentions and seems like a good idea, but it’s not

    Please, stop filling WordPress websites with junk and let health professionals and authorities do their job.

    Anyone who wants to share WHO recommendations on their website can do it without a cookie banner plugin.

    Just remove this, now please.

    Can someone explain how to remove the banner? I have a 404 error message on my home page and it is the only thing that has changed.


    it seems to be the case (certainly here) that common adblockers browser add-ons stop the cookie notice from loading it’s js and css in the WP admin (i wonder why ….)

    Damn! I was sure you nailed it, but it’s not working for me :\

    I’m using AdBlock Plus on Chrome; if I disable it for the site, or even completely on chrome the disfunction remains:
    don’t get loaded;

    on them my browser Network tab reports a status of (blocked:other)
    with a
    Referrer Policy: strict-origin-when-cross-origin

    My browser is Chrome Version 81.0.4044.122 (Official Build) (64-bit)

    Please dFactory, can you fix that? (and teach us how btw)

    This plugin was bloated even before the unwanted Coronavirus notice was added. Works on latest Firefox but not on Chrome or Edge.

    @unixunderground : thanks also for the suggestion. Time to move to an alternative plugin.

    I made the mistake of clicking “Yes” (Just to see what the Covid banner did) and now I cannot remove the Covid footer. It appears every time teh site is first displayed.

    This should be a simple, switch it off again. I have even uninstalled Cookie Notice and reinstalled it, but it still returned!

    I am not happy editing database tables to fix this: that is not how wordpress is supposed to work.

    This is very frustrating. My client does not want this on his site.

    PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE Provide a way to remove teh covid banner once it has been activated.

    I wrote a must-use plugin to auto-answer no to the corona bar (which to some does not work – meaning that the question stays up forever):

     * Plugin Name: InnerspaceZeta Customizations patchCookieNotice
     * Plugin URI:
     * Description:
     * Author: InnerspaceZeta + VS49 + UnDinosauro
    register_activation_hook(WP_PLUGIN_DIR.'/cookie-notice/cookie-notice.php', function(){
    	update_option('cookie_notice_options', wp_parse_args(['update_notice' => false ], get_option('cookie_notice_options')));

    It fires upon plugin activation and modifies a flag in the plugin options.
    Must be put into wp-content/mu-plugins/
