Hello … I can’t find this field to reorder the categories … is it a paid plugin option?

Greetings from Webtoffee!
The priority field that you are referring which is used to reorder categories in the front end is a premium version feature.

Hey there, I just installed the GDPR Cookie Consent plugin free version to see how it works. I am having a problem… when I go to the individual “cookie categories” (e.g., advertisement, functional, analytics, necessary, etc) and enable the “category default state”, it still continues to show “disabled” when I click on the the “cookie settings” button. I would like to have all categories enabled when the reader click on the “cookie setting”. How do I troubleshoot it? Thank you! Andréa.
