Displaying a clear and compliant cookie consent notice is crucial for any website. Fortunately, Elementor makes it easy to create and customize a professional-looking cookie consent dialog without coding. This tutorial will guide you through the process step-by-step.

Step 1: Choose Your Popup Type

Elementor offers various popup types, each with its own advantages. For cookie consent, consider these options:

  • Bottom Bar: This unobtrusive approach displays a bar at the bottom of the screen, ideal for brief messages.
  • Slide-In: This type slides in from the side, attracting attention without obscuring the entire screen.
  • Fly-In: This eye-catching popup flies into the center of the screen, ideal for highlighting important information.

Step 2: Create Your Popup Content

  1. Open Elementor and go to Templates > Popups.
  2. Choose your preferred popup type and name it something like “Cookie Consent.”
  3. Click “Edit with Elementor.”
  4. In the content area, add a heading like “We use cookies to improve your experience.”
  5. Include a brief explanation of the types of cookies used and their purpose.
  6. Add two buttons:
    • “Accept All Cookies”: This triggers a function to accept all cookies.
    • “Manage Cookies”: This opens a separate page or modal with detailed information and individual cookie selection options.

Step 3: Set Triggers and Visibility

  1. Go to the “Settings” tab.
  2. Under “Triggers,” select “Page Load” to display the popup automatically when the page loads.
  3. In “Conditions,” you can specify which pages to show the popup on.
  4. Under “Display Rules,” set the frequency to “Once per session” to prevent annoyance.

Step 4: Design Your Popup

  1. Customize the popup’s appearance using the Style tab.
  2. Choose colors, fonts, and sizes that match your website’s branding.
  3. Adjust the padding and spacing for readability and clarity.
  4. Consider adding icons or animations for visual appeal.

Step 5: Add Functionality

  1. Go to the “Actions After Close” section.
  2. For the “Accept All Cookies” button, add an action to set a cookie indicating consent.
  3. For the “Manage Cookies” button, link to your dedicated cookie policy page.

Step 6: Test and Publish

  1. Preview your popup on different devices and screen sizes.
  2. Make any necessary adjustments to ensure it looks and behaves consistently.
  3. Once satisfied, publish your popup and check its functionality on your live website.

Additional Tips:

  • Use clear and concise language in your message.
  • Provide a link to your full cookie policy for transparency.
  • Consider offering a “Remember my choice” option for returning visitors.
  • Ensure your cookie consent solution complies with relevant regulations.
