How to Add Cookie Banner on MODX Website

Welcome to CookieYes! This guide will walk you through how you can install a cookie banner on your MODX 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 Consent banner from the left-side panel.
  • To get the banner installation code, head to Site Settings and click on the Get Script button on the right side of the URL. 
  • Now click on Copy code button to get the CookieYes installation code.
