In this tutorial I am going to show you how to easily add a cookie notification popup to a WordPress website without installing any additional plugins.
Don’t get me wrong – I like plugins and I use a few of them on my websites. They are one of the main reasons that made WordPress so popular in the first place. With a simple click you can extend your website’s functionalities and give an easy answer to a complex technical problem. A few plugins might be a good thing for your website, however, they also come with a cost. The biggest problem with plugins is that they usually have many options that you are probably never going to use. Unnecessary code may increase the server load time and slow down your website, making it less appealing to your visitors. On top of that, sometimes plugin incompatibilities may appear that can even break your entire website. That is why, whenever possible, I always prefer the custom solution. Luckily, you do not need to install a plugin to add a cookie notification popup to your website. So, here is what I did to add cookie consent popup message to my WordPress website without installing any additional WordPress plugins.
