How to fully set up Clym for a WordPress site

In this guide you’ll learn how to fully configure Clym for your WordPress website. This way, you’ll be able to collect and manage cookie consent for every third-party service you use. We’ll also explain how to embed content such as YouTube videos so that it is loaded only after collecting the user’s consent, as required by the GDPR.

The steps below follow the YouTube video embedded above.

1. Adding and verifying a domain (00:00 - 01:24)

Domains must be verified to prove ownership or access to the website’s code.

The easiest way for WordPress users is via our GDPR Cookie Consent plugin.
Just paste the meta tag in the WordPress plugin, then click verify in the Clym admin.
Select any services you are using on your website. They can also be added later on.
We'll add Google Analytics as an example and Youtube for embedded content.
Copy the widget code and paste it in the WordPress plugin.

That's it! The Clym Privacy Widget now loads on your site.

2. Adding embedded content (01:25 - 02:05)

We’ll use YouTube as an example for adding embedded content.

Embedded content uses cookies, so it must be loaded with user’s consent via Clym.
Convert your YouTube iframe into a Clym iframe, so it will not be loaded before obtaining consent.
Paste the Clym iframe in your post and see the results.
Videos are now loaded only when YouTube cookies are accepted.

3. Adding a third party service

Adding custom services is very easy. We integrated over 150 third-party service providers.
Just have your custom parameters ready. In our example, we’ll add Drift Support.

If you can’t find the service in our integrations list, follow our guide on adding custom third-party tags and cookies.
That's it! Drift Support now loads after the use has accepted cookies.

4. Customizing the look and feel

There are many options that can be customized to make the widget your own.

That’s it.
