Enable the Auto-hide cookie bar after the delay option and configure time if you want to assume the user acceptance if he/she lingers on the web page for the specified amount of time.

Apart from this, several other settings are also provided on the cookie bar page as shown below:

  • The cookie bar is currently a field that allows you to enable or disable the cookie bar on your website. The cookie bar will not be shown on the front-end of the website if this option is turned off, and the cookies will be installed without any consent from the user.
  • Show only for EU Countries enables you to show the cookie notice only to the visitors from the European countries.
  • Cookie Bar can be set as a Banner, Pop up, or as a widget.
    • With the banner option, you get to choose if you want to place the banner in the header or footer. Here, I have placed the banner in the footer.
    • If the popup is chosen, then the cookie notification will be shown as a popup instead of a notification bar. You can set an overlay along with the popup, which will block the user from browsing the website unless consent is obtained.

As for the widget, you can position it to the left or right of the website.

On load option allows you to either animate the notification or make it sticky while loading the website.

On hide option allows you to either animate the way the notification disappears or to disappear without any visual effect.
