How to Add Cookie Banner on Drupal Website

Welcome to CookieYes! This guide will walk you through how you can install a cookie banner on your Drupal website. A cookie banner will help your website stay compliant with privacy laws like the GDPR and ePrivacy Directive.

In case you have already signed up on CookieYes, without taking any action on the initial setup screens, head to the CookieYes Dashboard. 

  • To customize the cookie banner, select the Cookie Banner from the top navigation panel.
  • To get the banner installation code, head to Site Settings and click on the Get installation code button on the right side of the URL. 
  • Now click on Copy code button to get the CookieYes installation code.

Note: You can share the code with a developer or your team by clicking on Send code to Developer link. Enter the email address and then click on Send Instructions. The recipient will get the code and instructions via email.

While pasting the code, remove the commented lines that indicate the start and end of the CookieYes code. Only use the portion of the code shown in the image below. The commented lines are HTML encoded in Drupal and the CookieYes banner will not be displayed as a result.

Tip: The ‘Enable CookieYes’ checkbox will allow you to enable or disable the cookie banner from the admin side without removing the code.

Step 8. Head back to the setup screen and click on the Verify button. You will see a success message that your banner is active.

The cookie consent banner will be live on your Drupal website! Now, you can complete your website scanning from the CookieYes Dashboard and explore further customizations and features.

We recommend upgrading your Drupal site to a newer version for an enhanced performance.
