    Hi,
    Thank You for your answer.
    I’ve done it as you said, however, after insert the shortcode only appears the message (Manage your consent) and its not clickable (there is no link inside it).

    Please help me.
    Thank you in advance,
    Jadiel.

    Hi,
    Thank You for such a wonderful plugin!

    I would like to add the Privacy & Cookies Policy tab on my footer (like a link), however, when I add the shortcode [user_consent_state] it appears the text “Your current state: Consent Accepted. Manage your consent.”

    It should appear something (a link) like “Update Privacy & Cookies Policy”
    How can I do that?

    Please help me.
    Thank ypu in advance,
    Jadiel.

      Hi Jadiel,

      Please add below code snippet to your active theme’s function.php
      function wt_cli_cookie_manage_custom( $atts )
      {
      $atts = shortcode_atts( array(
      'title' => 'Manage consent',
      'style' => ''
      ), $atts );
      return "" . __( esc_html( $atts['title'], 'cookie-law-info') ) . "";
      }
      add_shortcode( 'wt_cli_manage_consent', 'wt_cli_cookie_manage_custom' );

      Then you can use below short code.
      [wt_cli_manage_consent title=”Manage your consent”]

        Hi Guys,
        Do you have any solution for that?
        I’ve also tried this short-code, however, it did not work either.

        Thanks, Ana.
