62: Gimme Them Cookies
In this episode, we gobble up all the cookies. Well not really, but we discuss GDPR, privacy and how to handle people’s information responsibly. We cover the very simple GDPR Cookie Consent plugin that can be found on the wordpress repository.
We are getting close to the end of Season 4. We only have one more episode to go! In episode 6 we discuss Smart Slider 3 and how it can elevate your sliders and how easy it is to use.
Hey there and welcome to episode number five of season four of the Divi addicts Podcast, where today we’re talking about cookies and people’s information.
So today, we’re talking about GDPR, we’re talking about cookies. Specifically, we’re talking about the plugin GDPR cookie consent by web toffee. And this can be found inside of the WordPress repo. So if you’re in your WordPress installation, it’s easy to find, go to plugins, add new, and then search for GDPR cookie consent. We’ll put the link to the repo in the show notes. So it’ll be very easy for you to find, but the things you’re going to get from this, and especially with you know, 2018 conversations of GDPR compliance, it’s become an extremely hot topic. And it’s one of those where you want to make sure that you’re handling your setup correctly, and allowing people the ability to feel like they’re controlling and to truly control their data. So this GDPR setup, it gives you a cookie notification, a link to privacy policies. But it also, it’s going to give people the ability to change those settings as they see fit. So you can link up a Settings option. And you can control the look and feel of the plug in itself and the notification to match your site.
So it’s an easy thing to do. It’s a super easy plugin to set up. And it doesn’t take a whole lot of customization. And this will absolutely be a short episode because there’s not a lot to this plug in. But it’s got over 500,000 active installs. That’s insane. It’s got a four and a half star rating with 216, five star ratings over on the WordPress repo. So this is a truly great, well reviewed, highly installed and well supported simple plugin to help you definitely secure and give off a very confident vibe to the people who visit your website.
Check out Web Toffee, go to their site and check out everything that they’re doing, because they do have some premium premium extensions for WordPress. But on top of that, this plugin is one of those that have become a staple on every website that I do. Because people’s info is just important. We really don’t have a whole lot to talk about on this plugin outside of that. We just really wanted to make sure that we talk through people’s privacy and the fact that we are taking it very seriously at Keegan Lanier media. And it’s one of those things that we just put on every single site, regardless. So we hope you’ve enjoyed this. We hope you stick around. Listen to more episodes of the podcast go back to previous seasons, there’s tons of info, we’re probably definitely over 60 total episodes of the podcast now between all the different seasons. There’s a lot of content, we love your feedback, and we just hope that you’ll smash the subscribe button. Stay around and connect with us and let us know your thoughts on each and every episode.
So Have an awesome day. And we will be back. Well the next episode, I guess you can go to that now. In the final episode of season four will be episode number six, all about smart slider 3.0, which is a phenomenal slider plugin. It gives you massive control and allows you to do some very, very cool things that elevate a Divi website or just a WordPress website in general to a very next level. So we’ll be back, check out episode number six. And we’ll see you in the next episode.
So again, we’re going to talk about this on this episode as well is the sponsorship segment of this podcast. we’d really love to know your feedback. I’m very in tune to the community and want to listen to you guys and what you prefer. As far as the flow of the podcast. Do you like a sponsorship segment in the beginning, the middle or the end? Do you like them not being here at all? Personally, I’m not a fan. But we’ve mentioned it in previous episodes that there are some some time commitments to doing these podcasts. There’s also some expense for equipment and different things like that. Really just trying to get the vibe of you and let us know exactly how you feel about the sponsorship segments. Could they be better? Could they be shorter? Could they be removed completely in would you support The website, website. Wow, I got websites on my mind, would you support the podcast in a different way if another option was available that allows you to get just the content in every episode.
So we appreciate you. We’re going to end this episode with a sponsorship read. And we thank you again for being here for listening to episode number five, where we’re talking about GDPR cookie consent. And we’ll be right back in Episode Six, the final episode of this season, where we’re going to discuss smart slider 3.0. So thank you. And here’s a word from one of our sponsors.
