WP Comment Policy Checkbox

Descrizione

Add a checkbox to the comment forms so that the user can give consent to the web’s privacy policy. And save this consent in the database.

Features

  • Add a required privacy policy checkbox to the default WordPress comment forms, with a link to you privacy policy page, opening in new tab.
  • Optionally, you can display a customized text before the checkbox.
  • Allowed an external link as a page of the privacy policy.
  • Allowed HTML link types attribute in the policy page link, for SEO reasons (nofollow, external…)
  • The consent is stored in the database, in wp_commentmeta table with the metakey wpcpc_private_policy_accepted, and the commentator’s email as value.
  • The consent is exported by WordPress’s Export Personal Data function.
  • The consent is erased by WordPress’s Erase Personal Data function.

Use

You can configure the plugin in the Discussion Settings on your WordPress administration.

Theme compatibility

The plugin only works if the theme uses the native WordPress function for comment forms.
Also, the plugin creates a concrete HTML structure to print the checkbox. Not in all theme will be displayed correctly. In that case, you could use the ‘Additional CSS’ box in the Customize of your theme.

I installed the plugin correctly, put in the text & set the privacy policy page, but the checkbox & text does not appear below the comment box

The plugin only works if the theme uses the native WordPress function for comment forms. Your theme is probably not compatible with this plugin.

Excellent, straightforward, lightweight plugin provides a functionality that really should be part of WordPress core at this point. Until it is, this is a useful solution -- and a more logical approach than some others I've tried because it directly associates acceptance with the actual comment in the database.

Ce plugin fait exactement ce qu'il dit, il ajoute une case à cocher obligatoire avec un lien vers la politique de confidentialité du site. Il reste à finaliser la traduction en Français

Muchas gracias por actualizar el plugin, no veas lo útil que nos está siendo para cumplir la RGPD en los comentarios.

Francamente bueno, objetivo y práctico, hace que no seamos tan vulnerables a la nueva RGPD frente a los comentarios de los blogs! Un imprescindible si WordPress no se pone las pilas.
