Step by step guide for installing Clym on your Wordpress website
Here’s a quick 2-minute video showing you how to install Clym’s compliance widget onto your website. Below the video, you will also find step-by-step instructions in written form. If you feel this is a task better suited for your webmaster or developer, please send them this link, along with the email instructions you received from Clym.
Before you get started, make sure you have at hand the Clym widget code and the links for "Privacy Center" and "Do not sell or share my personal information". You should have received them via email or you can copy them from your Clym admin account.
Installing Clym on a Wordpress website is a 3-step process:
- FROM YOUR CLYM ADMIN ACCOUNT:
From the left-hand side menu, toggle to Website settings and select Integrations on the domain you would like to add the Clym widget to. Select Setup instructions, and from the pop-up window, select WordPress. A pop-up window will open containing specific steps for installing Clym onto that platform. You will also have the option to access a Video tutorial, which can be viewed above in this article, or to send your instructions to a developer that you are working with.
Copy the embed code from the Copy the code below field.
FROM YOUR EMAIL:Copy the embed code from within the box labeled Clym privacy widget.
Note that, in order to facilitate compliance, this script has to be inserted as the first script under the "head" section of your website. Failure to do so might allow third party scripts to be loaded on your website and, depending on regulation, that might result in non-compliance. For easy viewing, you may leave space in between the Clym script and any following scripts or code.
2. Add Clym code to your Wordpress site
Go back to your WordPress website. Find Plugins from the left-hand side navigation bar and select Add New.
Search for a plugin that will allow you to add custom header and footer code snippets, such as WPCode – Insert Headers and Footers + Custom Code Snippets – WordPress Code Manager. When searching for WPCode, this is the first plugin that will appear. Click on Install Now and then click Activate to activate the plugin.
Once you have installed and activated the plugin, click on Code Snippets from the left-hand side of the navigation bar and select Header & Footer.
Paste the embed code from Clym into the Header section.
3. Copy / paste the links for "Privacy Center" and "Do not sell or share my personal information"
Please note - there are multiple ways to add Clym's footer links to your Wordpress website, depending on how your footer is built within your site. The below steps refer to one option. If your website has a different build, you may need to check with your developer on how to add our footer link embed codes, or reach out to email@example.com for assistance.
Return to your Wordpress dashboard and find Appearance in the left navigation menu. Select Widgets.
Scroll to the footer widgets and click into the footer widget that you would like to add the footer links to, based on wherever you would like for the links to display on your website's footer. For example, adding your Clym embed codes into Footer 1 will add the links to the top of your website's footer.
Paste the Privacy Center and Do not sell or share my personal information embed codes one at a time into the content section of the footer widget where you would like for the links to display. Click Update.
You're all set! Clym's widget will now display on your website based on how you setup your widget layout.
Please note that based on your geolocation, you may not see the privacy widget. To view Clym on your site, scroll to the footer of your website and click Privacy Center or Do not sell or share my personal information to open the widget. View more ways to verify the installation here.
