How To Add a Responsive Cookie Consent for Blogger Website

Cookie Consent is an essential part of any website, if your website doesn’t have cookie consent then this article will cover the importance of adding a Cookie Consent Notice on your website and how you can also add this cookie consent for blogger website easily.

By default, the blogger displays a Cookie Notification on top of the Blogger’s website. But if you want a Cookies Consent Widget that has a professional and Responsive design then I suggest you use this widget through which you can obtain consent regarding Cookies from your visitors.

What are Cookies?

Cookies are small pieces of data that are stored on visitors’ computers or mobile devices by websites that they visit and can be used to identify them as unique users, keep track of their behavior, and even monitor their use of the internet.

Cookies are used for all sorts of reasons. They can help us remember things like your sign-in name, what language you prefer, and what country you live in. Cookies also help us understand how people use our services so we can make them better.

Why do I Need to Add a Cookie Consent Notice?

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a European Union law that requires companies to get explicit permission from users before they can store their data online.

The GDPR aims to protect personal information on the internet by giving people more control over what happens with their data. It also gives people more rights over who has access to their data, as well as what kind of information they share with others.

How To Add Cookie Consent Popup in Blogger

You can add this widget to your Blogger website easily. You don’t need to have good knowledge of HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. It is already designed and you just need to implement the codes easily at the right place in your Blogger Theme XML.

Important!Before you start adding codes in XML, I will recommend you take a backup of your current theme. By chance, if any problem occurs, you can restore it later.

Step 1: First of all Login into your Blogger Dashboard.

Step 2: On Blogger Dashboard, click Theme.

Step 3: Click the arrow down icon next to the ‘customize’ button.

Step 4: Click Edit HTML, and you will be redirected to the editing page.

Step 5: Now search the code ]]></b:skin> and paste the following CSS Codes just above to it.

If your template has a dark mode feature and you want it to be a different color in dark mode, you can customize the codes as per your need. Each template can have a different dark mode class, so please adjust it. You can replace the marked class with your template’s dark mode class.

Step 6: We have to disable the default Cookie Notice by Blogger, so add the following JavaScript Codes just above to </head>.

<script>/*<![CDATA[*/ /* Disable default Blogger cookie notice */ cookieChoices = {}; /*]]>*/</script>

Step 7: Now add the following JavaScript Code just above to </body> tag. If you don’t find it, it is probably already parsed which is <!--</body>--></body> or &lt;/body&gt;.

<script>/*<![CDATA[*/ /* Cookies Consent Notice Script by Fineshop */ var ckBox=document.querySelector("#ckBox"),ckAcptBtn=document.querySelector("#ckAcptBtn"),ckErrMes="Cookie can't be set! Please unblock this site from the cookie setting of your browser.";if(null!=ckBox){ckAcptBtn.onclick=()=>{document.cookie="CookieConsentByFineshop=Accepted; max-age=2592000; path=/",document.cookie?ckBox.classList.add("acptd"):alert(ckErrMes)};let e=document.cookie.indexOf("CookieConsentByFineshop=Accepted");-1!=e?ckBox.classList.add("hidden"):ckBox.classList.remove("hidden")} /*]]>*/</script>

Visitors may need to agree on Cookie Consent after every 30 days. Change the marked no. code as per your need (in seconds). For eg. 5184000 = 60 days

Step 8: Save the changes by clicking on this icon

We will add HTML codes in an HTML/Javascript gadget through Layout Menu so we can enable, disable or make changes to the Layout Menu. You can also add the HTML codes in Theme XML, which paste the HTML codes provided below just above to the JavaScript that we have added in Step 7.

Step 9: Then go to Layout Menu.

Step 10: Create a gadget by clicking on Add a Gadget and choosing HTML/Javascript.

Step 11: Paste the following HTML Codes into it.
