About Mini WP GDPR

Features include a cookie and tracking-script consent popup, integrations for WooCommerce and Contact Form 7. It logs when users first accept your privacy policy and can also inject your Google Analytics tracking code for you.

Installing this plugin is no guarantee that your site will magically become fully GDPR compliant, but it should make it much easier for you to get there.

Getting Started

Getting started with the Mini WP GDPR WordPress plugin, and the default configuration will work for most sites.

Once it’s installed, go to the front end of your site and you should see the cookie & tracker consent popup. This confirms that it’s installed correctly.

If you’ve already got a Google Analytics tracker set up (with the Google Tag Manager,) then press the “Info” button to see if the consent box was able to auto-detect it. If you see a message that says “We don’t use any tracking scripts…” then you need to configure your Google Analytics script properly.

Analytics Scripts

Configure Mini WP GDPR to to detect and/or inject Google Analytics trackers.

InformationIf you’re using WooCommerce, we recommend using the official WooCommerce Google Analytics Integration plugin.

Technical Info: Mini WP GDPR looks for tracking scripts by scanning for scripts that have been enqueued “properly”, using WordPress’ wp_enqueue_script() function. Before the script tags are rendered, we scan all the enqueued script URLs for known Regular Expressions.

If you’re not using WooCommerce, the easiest thing to do is use Mini WP GDPR to add your Google Analytics tracking script for you. Just go to Settings > Mini GDPR

Add Google Analytics tracker

You can use the older “Universal Analytics” style code OR the newer GA4 type – either will work fine. Enter your tracking code, save the settings and go to the frontend of your site. In the consent popup, click “Info…” and you should see that Google Analytics has been correctly detected.
