How to Add cookie Consent Popup in Wordpress?

You can also use the same code in Wordpress to display the cookie consent popup on your website. 

You just need to add the code in the footer Area. For this, you can use a dedicated Code manager plugin or directly add it to the theme editor. 

header footer code manager plugin

For this I recommend you to use the "Header Footer Code Manager" Plugin which will help you put the code in the Footer section without editing the core theme file. 

Or you can paste the code in Appearance > theme editor> Footer.php section. 

Here, remember that if you are using CSS code above </body> tag then wrap the CSS code with Style tag like this. ( <style> CSS code </style> )

You can watch the below video to learn how you add this cookie popup to the Wordpress website without using any plugin.
