There are many WordPress plugins out there which does a lot of fancy things with the cookie consent. We didn’t find one we really liked that was really lightweight and developer friendly and so we created our own.

It isn’t meant for the masses who want tons of configurable options in the admin (although it will work and look fine out of the box). Many use this plugin with the default styling because it is so light-weight and good-looking.

For the developer who wants the functionality and being able to conveniently override the styles in the theme without bloat—here’s a plugin for you. You have filters and actions available to you at every step of the process.

See the installation section for more information on how to install. The FAQ section has important information on how to customize the plugin.


Included in the package are complete translations for the following languages:

  • Lithuanian (Thanks @batiufa)
  • Swedish

A complete .pot file is available in the translations/ directory. If you use and translate this little plugin, please send us the translation so it can be included!

Even better is if you use for your translations. That way, they will be automatically distributed with the WordPress updater.
However, in some locales, the work with the Translate site is not up to speed. We will continue to support included translations for a while.
